Raw materials

Reclaimed Elevator Cable

This thin strands of wire, after a life of service are an ideal material for pattern welded blades.

Wrought Iron

A material no longer made, it is the softest form of iron; an ideal companion to tame the ultra-hard japanese steels. The impurities aid in the sharpening process.

Custom Knives

The most simple and fundamental of tools has a thousand uses and can take as many shapes. I enjoy working side by side with my professional and private customers to craft a hunting, bushcraft, carving or leather knife tailored to their needs.
