Quality is our priority
My love for knives comes from the skill I inherited through my father & his father. My grandfather used to make flawless blades for surgeons; blades as sharp as a razor. Twelve years ago, I used those same tools to hand craft my first knife. The difference & excitement I felt in making knives was that each blade has its own character, personality and is designed for a specific job. Whereas surgical blades are more or less repetitive. I was so proud after my first project, it opened a new door for me after only making surgical instruments my whole life. I then continued making knives as a hobby and today, I professionally design & create each unique piece.
Skills and Techniques
I’ve crafted my knife products with a variety of materials for example;
Blades: Damascus steel, D2 steel, High speed steel, Carbon steel.
Handles: Antler, Bison horn, Ram horn, Camel bone, Whale bone, Thuya Burl wood, Micarta, Walnut, Maple & more!
For the strops & sheaths I have used vegetable tanned cowhide for almost all of my projects. The vegetable tanning process creates a durable, somewhat rigid leather that will accept carvings, tooling and dyes. All sheaths are tooled and stitched by hand and treated with a protective leather finish. Among the many options that make each project unique are posts, exotic inlays, tooling/texturing/carvings and dye color
