I glued up a few knives last night. Here is a shot of one of them in a sweet little vise that Chuck Ward made.


I am working on some santokus in 1095 and I am liking them so far. They are a lot of fun to do as with the wider blade you can play around a bit with the clay.

I think I may need to make myself a few kitchen knives.

A few knives for sale

Up first is one of my first camp knife/tactical styled knives. I have only made two of these so far and the other is already spoken for. This one is in 1095 with olive drab G-10 for the handles. The blade is a little more than 4 1/2'' and the overall length is about 9 1/2''. It comes with a simple kydex sheath. This one is SOLD and shipping is SOLD.

This next one is one of my edc knives. It is also made with 1095 high carbon steel and has black linen micarta with blue liners for the handle. It has a blade length of about 3'' and an overall length of about 6 1/2''. This one also comes with a simple kydex sheath That is drilled to fit a small tek-lok (not provided). This one is SOLD and shipping will be SOLD.

Finally this knife is the last of the current batch of Altoids tin survival kit neck knives. It is made of 1095 that is 5/32'' thick so it is fairly thick for this size knife. It has a blade length of about 1 1/4'' and the overall length is about 3 1/2''. It has a slightly different finish than the previously offered knife in that while it does have a satin finish I left the mill scale, scratches, and small divots intact for a little bit different finish. I think it is a pretty cool effect. It comes with a neck sheath and ball chain. This one is SOLD and shipping is SOLD.

Here are a few reqested photos:

Professional Photo Shoot

At the Oklahoma Custom Knife Show I had Chuck Ward take a few photos of one of my pocket cutlasses. I think they turned out rather well.

This pocket cutlass has a blade of 1095 high carbon steel that has been edge quenched and etched in a solution with copper and brass added. The handles are stabilized cherry burl.

Oklahoma Custom Knife Show

We had a good time at the Oklahoma Custom Knife Show. I got to talk to several great makers and got a lot of good feedback from regular folks all the way up to master smiths. I even had a knife photographed by Chuck Ward.

p.s. I didn't get all of the knives that I had going finished in time so keep an eye out for a few to become available some time soon.

Finished a couple to put up for sale.

I am putting up two of my knives for sale. They are my EDC pattern and this is the one that I have been carrying myself for a while. They are made of 1095 high carbon steel and one is handled in green canvas micarta and the other in natural canvas micarta. The blade is around 3'' and the overall length is around 6.5''. They also come with a kydex pocket sheath (That's how I carry it). They are each priced at SOLD.

New model..the pocket cutlass!

Here is a new one that I have been working on. I really like how it turned out! Now I just need to figure out what I want to do for the sheath.

Heat Treating = Progress

I finally got my heat treating oven back up and running. This led to doing the heat treatment on six knives. I did two of the big ones and four of the more edc sized ones.

Semi-productive day in the shop. Finally!

I finally got a little shop time and this is what I got out of it. I finished up my forged blade that I started a while back(aside from making a sheath and sharpening). I also started a bit larger blade and a little guy that came out of a scrap from making the larger blades tang.

p-32 Kydex Pocket Holster

I tend to like pocket carry for knives and I have a pocket holster for my pm-9 that I enjoy, but all I have for my Kel-Tec p-32 is the little zippered case it came with. So when I had to do a Kydex sheath for a customer's knife I figured why not kill two birds with one stone.

The beginnings of a new batch.

Here are three new patterns for my next batch of knives. I love coming up with new stuff. This should be fun!

Christmas knives finished

Last night I finished up the Christmas knives for my Mother and my Mother in Law. I also finished up a couple that had been floating around in the shop for a while.
They are pairing knives made of 1095 high carbon steel with stabilized pink spalted maple handles set up for neck sheaths.

I am regretting that I only made two. I am thinking that one with blue G10 and another in black linen Micarta would be pretty nice.

This is a close up of the one that I am giving t0 my mother. She gets this one because there is a dog in the spalting of this handle and she has a dog (Lily).
