Handmade and Made to Order Knives and Knife Scales Made in and Shipped from Columbus Ohio

I had been doing woodworking for years then, on a trip for supplies, I saw a knife blank (unfinished) on sale and decided to give making knives a go. Turns out I really enjoyed working with the different woods, forming it into handles for knives and have been doing so for the last several months. I choose a type of wood to start out and make a design of what I want the handle to look for each particular knife (I don't make the blades). After cutting out the rough design on the wood and starting to finish the handle, I see different patterns or designs in the wood for that blade, as I form the handle. This will, quite often, end up as a very different handle than the original design – for the better, perhaps. Hopefully, not only are my knives purchased to be used (often) but also be enjoyed for how they look and be proud for owning them. I appreciate this opportunity to display the work I have been doing and hope that people find worth in my knives. I live in Columbus Ohio and make my knives in my garage shop. I moved to Columbus Ohio (many years age) to attend Ohio State University and never left. When my wife and I became empty nesters we moved to the west side, where she grew up and we have 3 grown, married daughters, 4 grandchildren and 1 brand new great-grandson. If you purchase one of my knives , I hope you get as much enjoyment out of owning and using it as I did in Making It

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

Knife blades come in a wide variety of metals, sizes and shapes so I should be able to get about any size or style you want.

Custom and personalized orders

I am beginning to make my own blades and welcome designs, suggestions or advice.

Care instructions

Any knife should NOT be put in the dishwasher. After you use a knife - hand wash and dry the blade.

Do you make the blades.

No, currently I have several different sources for the blades but am about to attempt makind a blade of my design. I do handmade the handles and am looking for a local source for the blades.
