I thought I'd show you all a few pictures of things in my shop being built.
You do some very nice work! Keep it up.
That third blade from the left, is it spoken for?
In this picture? Yes, But I can make another.
Good, I will send you a PM. Happy day
I'm going to use this thread to post pictures of things as I'm working on them. From now on, they will be, more or less, real time pictures.
A few pictures of the recently finished Otsi in the works.
Working on a little drop point bushcrafter. 1/8" thick O1 tool steel. The blade is about 3.25" long. Yeah, I know 5 pins is over kill. But its going to look cool!
Forging a hawk.
Working on a knife with a loop in the pummel.
Pm me with pricing on something similar please
Loving it, keep up the beautiful work!
Some cool stuff on the way!
Love the seax style blades.
Man oh man!! Those edc's are gonna be sweet! My wife is gonna love hers!
I'm working on a big'ol chopper. Right after the heat treat I gave it a batoning test.
I'm kinda behind on posting up to date stuff. Stay tuned!
The last knife on the page with 2 holes in the handle. What's the handle ,blade size ,height,thickness. Do you use Micarta for handles?
Would this be a good blade for a deer hunting knife? Thank you.........
Totally love this photo and this blade shape!

What are handle plans for this one?
The handle is 4.5" long. The blade is 4" long, 1/8" thick and about 1.25" wide.
I have never tried working with micarta.
It sure would! 4" or less and 1/8" thick is absolutely perfect for skinning and field dressing.
Thanks! This is pre heat treat. Once that was done I gave it the standered wire brushed finish. It got walnut scales and 4 brass pins.
Working on something cool tonight.
VERY cool. What are the specs?
Thanks! 6" from the guard to the tip of the blade. 4 3/4" from the guard to the end of the handle. 3/16" thick.
This knife has had a hard life.
I made it for a trade show almost a year ago. It never sold at the show, I had to list it on line after to get it sold. Originally, it had a traditional butcher blade, but someone put this aggressive clip point into it later. It has switch owners at least once since I've seen it last, and now it's back with me for a makeover. Soon it will be a 5" drop point!
This knife is going up for sale tonight...
Someone concept art for tooled leather to come.
I don't to do pre cut stuff. No jigs or assembling parts. Everything that comes out of my shop is made one at a time, by hand and eye, from raw materials.
Working on a pretty awesome bowie.
What do you think?
Doing a full flat grind and a brass guard on this 19th century pattern bowie.
Is that the one from Instagram?
Working on a pretty cool bowie.
After forging and grinding the knife to shape, I normalize it. Normalizing is a very important step in the process. By heating the blade up and letting it cool slowly in the air your allowing any stresses that formed during the forging process to dissipate and the grain structure to become fine and uniform.
