I have been knife maker and woodworker since my teen years and enjoy making just about anything with my hands. I'm a history teacher by trade and keep my crafting passion going in my spare time.
All of my items have been created with great care and are built to last for years to come. My family history is riddled with tradesmen and craftsmen, from butchers, plumbers, pipe fitters, to woodworkers and blacksmiths.
All of my knives are hand forged and tooled. I put at least 10-15 hours into each knife but price them reasonably.
Hand forging a knife takes a great amount of time, energy and patience.
Making my knives involves a 10 step process which takes 15-10 hours over a 2-3
day period if working straight through.
1. Create template of the knife to overlay for forging
2. Rough hand forging of blade and handle on anvil
3. Hand stamping of initials and makers mark
4. Hand file blade and handle profile
5. Differential heat treating of blade using forge and torch
6. Hand file of blade and handle and finish of with belt grinder.
7. Drill handle pins and grind to accept handle material properly
8. Install handle using resin epoxy and either, brass, stainless, copper or mosaic \
9. Hand sand/profile handle material to 800-100 grit sandpaper.
10. Hand polish and final inspection of blade.
Most of my knives come with a custom leather sheath made specifically for your knife. I use 9-10 oz high quality vegetable tanned leather which when done, make a good sheath that can be used for years in the field.
