Knives

These knives are hand forged, one at a time, in my small shop in Connecticut. They are meant for hard use, whether at home, work, or in the field. I use a variety of materials in my designs, with an emphasis on that which I can gather locally, be it scrap blade steel or shed antlers. Each knife is heat treated in house, and tempered to hold a keen edge. Included is a sturdy, handmade leather sheath to keep you and the knife protected when not in use.

    Hey, I love that little one! Looks just like a beautiful one made for me by an old wrangler from Montana who was so bow-legged and crippled with arthritis he could barely walk. Too much skateboarding, I recon.

    The knife was sweet alright and I carried it everywhere until some polecat got it. I saw his eyes glinting in the firelight the second before he disappeared with my knife into the night.

    I rike the idea of a knife that has a built in file
    for sharpening itself.
