The riddle of Steel

The relationship between the Smith and the steel must be a close one if the creation is to have spirit. When working on a blade for long periods of time, hand forging, filing and sanding, polishing and cutting, the object receives my intent on a cellular level through the constant contact.
Forging steel can be hazardous; burns, UV radiation, toxic fumes and metal dust are all occupational hazards. For me this is the deal you agree to as a creator and Blacksmith. All creation demands sacrifice, so it is no small thing to bring new life into existence, even if that new life is a sword or a knife.
This feeling of life or "spirit" is impossible for manufacturing companies to capture, with no disrespect intended, their knives are soulless.

The amount of metallurgical and technical knowledge required to forge good, reliable knives is extensive, and few customers have the time to research what they are buying.
This is understandable, but is leading to a decline in craftsmanship as the cheaply manufactured "damascus" and improperly forged blades drown the market. When you have a question about how a blade will perform, I can answer your questions with easily verified facts and information about the steels I use and the methods I employ.
This is the difference between a competent smith and an incompetent one. Knowledge of their craft and the versatility to help the customer understand what is going on behind the scenes.

    I am a self taught Blacksmith with a passion for crafting every aspect of my items independently. For me the whole reason behind my work is to craft "magic" items, creations which have a certain power about them.
