Here's one of the "Cracker" knives, upon completion. The blade etching, LONG LIFE, "CRACKER" has 2 meanings or wishes. Only Florida Crackers were eligible to get these, and the "long life" extends the well-wishes...along with the fact that "Lignum Vitae" is from the Latin: "long life" or "wood of life"...(I've heard both and am sure only "1" is correct).
Pictured below is an early "Cracker" knife.
Stay Sharp,
Capt. Chris

Nice limited issue.

Per the link below, it means "wood of life."

https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-meaning-of-the-phrase-Lignum-Vitae

Interestingly, indications are that it includes more than one species of tree???

Larry

P.S.: The floor of the large machine shop where I worked was said to consist of blocks of this wood set on end.
