All my knives & metal art work pieces are hand forged on a charcoal forge that I built back in 2003. The charcoal I use I make myself by burning the wood from specific fallen trees & branches.

I specialize in Bowie knives, hunting knives, fighting knives, boot knives, daggers and railroad spike knives. All my knives are one-of-a-kind and made solely by me. {railroad spike knives are considered pieces of art and are not functional knives}

Knives are full tang with hardwood handles and peened on butt caps. Blades are hand forged from 5160 spring steel; they are hardened and heat-treated. Railroad spike blades are forged from 1035 high carbon spikes. Guards & butt caps are made from either 5160 or mild steel. Handles are custom made from various hardwoods.

Most knives are already made & ready to ship. Although some knives are made upon ordering; many of my knife styles are used as templates for new orders. Nonetheless, please keep in mind that upon completion, no two knives are alike. Knives ordered from style templates take up to 8-weeks for delivery.

My metal art works are created from reclaimed metals I find while out on hikes, walks with my pups, while at my day job, and along the path of life in general. My designs are very organic. Pieces usually begin by my salvaging metal, which I then study until a design idea develops. At that point I draw a rough sketch of the artwork, and then I proceed to hand craft it at my forge. Like my knives, each metal art piece I create is one-of-a-kind. Although many of the designs are used as templates; meaning I may create another similar art piece, but it will not be identical to the original. If you choose to order a metal art piece from a template, it can take up to 6-weeks for delivery.
