The knives pictured here are all my own work. I make the blades, fittings,
and scabbards myself. Occasionally I will use fittings and such made by
someone else, and these pieces will be labelled accordingly. But the blades,
Ah,,,,the blades. The blades are mine.

While I have been trained by the
American Bladesmith's Society to
forge using traditional methods, these
were all made before that training.
They are all ground from steel cutting
files, are quite hard, and take an
excellent sharp edge.
