CRAWFORD “SWORD FISH REEL” – Hawaii

Frank Crawford was a U.S. Postal worker and a talented machinist who lived in Honolulu, Hawaii when he received a patent on January 2, 1934, for his "Hawaiian Sword Fish Reel".  Crawford later retired to California and it is not known if he continued to build reels there.  Crawford made very few reels, therefore, they are quite hard to come by today.
