Iron John Logan's Profile
My work has been said to have "a hearty, untamed American soul". Using time honored techniques passed down generations, I forge each blade with fire and anvil, hammer in hand, and quench the red hot steel in water then oil to bring out it's best properties - making it hard and tough enough to keep a keen edge even in the most rugged of use.
My handles I make from American hardwoods, names our forefathers knew and trusted; Hickory, Walnut, Cherry, to name a few.
My sheaths are hand sewn from top grade vegetable tanned leather, and are oiled to protect the blade and give the leather a richness only seen in well loved tools
As my blades will last to pass down the generations, many of the materials I use are reclaimed or up-cycled from generations passed; Wrought Iron from old bridges and sunken ships, Steel form farm implements, Wood from pickle vats and trees planted more then 100 years ago…
