What is your process?
I've started to create a video series on how I make my knives for those that might be interested in the process.
What are you working on next?
Instagram is the easiest place to see some of the knives I'm currently working on.
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 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.
