The wood for this knife was reclaimed from the Hoover barn, which was located just outside of Hopkinsville, KY. It was built around 1920 and served as an agricultural building until the late 1970ís when it was deemed too dangerous to house animals or to work out of due to its deteriorating condition. The Hoovers were an Amish family who had bought the farm after moving there from Lancaster, PA in the 1950ís. It was a traditionally framed 20í x 42' two story with two 14' side shelters. Most of the framing was chestnut while the siding was a combination of oak and chestnut. It was deconstructed in late 2007 and has been used in various projects.

The American chestnut tree was highly susceptible to chestnut blight, caused by a fungus that entered the country on Asian nursery stock imported to New York around 1900. The tree was devastated throughout the natural range, extending over the Appalachians, and highlands from Maine to Georgia. By 1940, three and one half billion American chestnut trees had perished.
