We will "Custom Fit" your Knife (any length blade to 10") with "Our Sheath" giving you a choice of covering and degree of decoration.
We offer Sheaths with Light, Medium and Heavy Decoration.
My knives are handforged from old, "high quality" files (preferably Nicholson Black Diamond and Old English), 1084, 1095 and really old buggy springs.
My preferred style is the "Drop-Point" but I also make scalpers, skinners, bowies, daggers, and neck knives. I work mostly from "speculation" instead of directly copying original pieces, although original knives have alway been a source of inspiration. I particularly like making "Indian Style" knives with blade lengths from 6"-9".
Handle materials include curly maple, hichory, oak, osage orange, antler and bone, and will many times include a rawhide wrap, carving, tacks, beads and other decoration.
A handmade, extremely high quality sheath with varying degrees of decoration, is included with my knives. I consider a knife without a sheath to be "half done".
I do not take custom orders and will just have
