All my knives are individually crafted and hand made. Even making
similar knives there will be different them due to the very nature
of my work.
I'm always trying to offer something different and I'm not afraid
to test new materials and processes to be able to do it so.
Every customer can say that they have a truly unique piece.
Nowadays I'm making knives exclusively in a variety of damascus
steels that I forge myself on my shop. I specially like San
Mai damascus as it allows users to have a very usefull hard
edge while keeping all the beauty of the different damascus patterns
on the sides.
I usually use steels like 52100, 5160, 1010, 1070, 1085 (cable),
D2, O1 and N678.
I've developed a personal
technique to forge steel cable showing the strands, leaving no hammering
marks and I really like the rough patterns I get from cable.
For handle materials I mostly use local woods, sheep horn, deer
or antelope stag and micarta
that I make in my own shop. For guards, pommels and general
decoration, I use my own
made mokume, damascus, nickel silver, sterling silver, brass,
copper (natural or enameled)
and stainless steel.
I also make my own leather
sheaths, although I also can make wooden
ones. Lined presentation
boxes are also available.
