Announcement   Thanks for taking a look at my blades. I hand forge all of my knives. I use both a home built wood fired forge and a propane one.
My shop is in Southern Oregon.
I love to reuse and recycle materials into my work. Spring steel off an old Studebaker is often used in my knives. It makes for s very tough blade that is easy to sharpen.
I also use 1084 and O1 steels.
In my shop I'll list my existing blades as well as made to order custom listing. The custom listings can be viewed as a general menu and by no means complete. If you see something you like, but would like something different than options listed, message me directly, before purchase for more info.
I've learned bladesmithing through passion, trial by error and from other makers past and present.
Thanks for your interest!

Let me tell you about Dave from Earthcrack. If your looking for incredible custom knives at an affordable price, look no further. If you want great communication and to be involved in every step of the process then again...look no further. Today I received my knives and I could not be happier...I am over the friggin moon for these knives. Razor sharp, YES! Stunning beauty, YES! Impeccable workmanship, YES! I didn't know when we started that I would be able to decide on so many options to customize them to my hand. What options do you like for the scales? How about the wood type? What about the gaps and natural splits in the burl, how should they be filled? FYI crushed turquoise is the way to go. Hammered pattern on the blades? Why hell yes! Custom sheaths for each? Yes. Any additional charge for any of that? NO!!

I have looked since 2005 to find a better chef knife. The search is over. Earthcrack made the perfect chefs knife for me.

Thanks for taking a look at my handmade knives and cleavers. I forge old leaf springs (5160 high carbon steel) to give the steel new life as useful cutlery.
I also use old buzz saws and hand saws as a source for my blades. The buzz saw blades are of similar thickness of common kitchen knives. They make excellent chef's knives and kitchen utility knives.
My handsaw blades are the thinnest blades I make. They are well suited for fillet knives and boning knives.
These are high carbon steel blades that have been heat treated and tempered to bring out the best qualities of the steel, that balances edge retention with ease of sharpening.
My wood fire fueled forge was built (by me) from a old tin bucket, wood ash paste (used to insulate and form the forge's combustion zone) and a length of black pipe with holes drilled (to provide oxygen for a blast of heat).
My anvil is an old well drilling bit welded to a big rigs brake drum.
I found that I enjoy a wide variety of handle scale materials and designs.
If you have something custom in mind let me know.

Thanks for looking
