Iron John Logan's Profile

About

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…

As these materials connect us with the past, so will my work connect us to the future. I have titled my blades with names of the rivers and streams that shaped my life - and countless others before me. Not that my knives are meant for water, any more then they are meant for the woods and fields and mountains of this Land. But, flowing water has a magic of it own that has drawn humans to it for thousands of years - and will continue to do so as long as there are people that enjoy the great outdoors.

Because of the high demand for my work and to be fair to all my clients, I will not longer be excepting deadlines nor rush orders. Projects will be completed in the order that payment is received. Thank you for your understanding and continued support of my craft - John
