My blades have soul to them, They are entirely hand crafted, and unique. You won't be able to match the quality, performance and passion of these knives with anything store bought. They are heirloom quality, extremely effective tools.
The blade is differentially quenched and tempered 1060 high carbon steel. Which is to say, the spine is flexible and durable, the edge is extremely hard. The result of this heat treating method is that you have a durable, springy blade with a killer edge that will last through a long period of use.
This blade has a convex grind, which will stand up to many forms of abuse and use.
I harden my knives using a computer controlled kiln. Using this tool allows me to get maximum edge retention out of a given piece/type of steel.
The handle of this knife is one piece along with the blade, wrapped in woven leather cord. The leather cord has been soaked in boiling beeswax. This ensures a comfortable grip that also conforms to the shape of the users hand with extended use.
The design on the blade is hand painted on, then acid etched deeply enough that you can feel it when running a finger over the flat of the blade.
The fullers (serpentine grooves) lighten the blade without compromising structural integrity, in addition to looking swanky.
Each blade I forge has a my lifetime warranty. If anything happens to it during the course of normal use, I will fix or repair it if I'm still alive.
