How much of your knives are made in house?
Pretty much everything is made in house. I buy pivots, bearings, and screws but everything else is made in my shop. I don't farm out any of the work (water jet, surface grinding, etc). This isn't because I disagree with farming out work to other local shops, it's just the way I work. I do small batches of knives, so it's quicker and more cost effective to keep it in house.
How are your knives heat treated?
Heat treat is also done in house. I heat treat in small batches of 3-4. Heat treatments vary by steel but generally all are completed with a sub-zero quench in a slurry of dry ice followed by 2 temper cycles. Each batch of knives is tested on a Rockwell hardness tester. If the treatment is non-optimal, the batch is re-treated or discarded.
You are all sold out! How do I get a knife?
Send me a message from my contact page and let me know which knife you would like to buy. I'll add you to my list and notify you when I start your knife. Additionally, from the same page you can subscribe to my mailing list and get notified anytime I add new available knives to the website.
What are you working on next?
Instagram is the easiest place to see some of the knives I'm currently working on.
What should I know when ordering a knife?
If you live in the US, shipping is free! If you live outside the US, you will need to contact me before making a purchase and I'll send you an invoice with shipping added. I try to get knives shipped out quickly, within a day or two of orders. Knives are all shipped in a leather pouch with an authenticity card.
