Blades and Tools
I hand forge knives and other tools to custiomer specifications. I enjoy recreating historic knives and other artifacts from the 18th and 19th centuries. I perform my own heat treating using both modern and primitive methods. Additionally, I hand-make the sheaths for my blades, using leather, wood or both!
