Everything is forged to shape from raw material. I made my first knife and took It for work, and that's all It took, and I have been making knives ever since. I am a voting member of the knife makers guild and a life member of badger knife club. The steel I like to use are carbon steel 5160 ,1095, L6, 52100, by request other steels are available, I also make my own damascus twist , random, latter and more.
I make hunting and fishing knives, spears for wild bore hunting, pipe tomahawks, bowie knives, and cutlery for the kitchen.
