G124

Superb erotic prison shank. This amazing weapon was crafted from a 3-sided wood file, likely appropriated from a prison wood shop back in the day. Discovered long ago in a shop in El Cerrito, CA. (just across from Alcatraz). A mean looking lethal weapon with a detailed carved penis handle. The file surfaces have been ground to a smooth bayonet-like blade. Perhaps a released prisoner took it away as a souvenir. In any case, this is a special and unique piece of erotic folk art. I have never seen anything like it.
