I haven’t posted in a while, so I figured I’d share a few commissions I’ve been working on. They are all laminated blades. The first is a walnut, antler, and copper handle. The next is a friction folder with a black oak handle, and the last is a Dogwood handle.

The next thing I wanted to share is a kickstarter campaign put on by a good friend of mine, David Delagardelle. He and a friend are looking to publish a novel, and there are plans for a movie after the novel. Here are a few swords and helms made by David for the upcoming movie.  If this sort of thing is of any interest to you please consider helping them out, they have some pretty cool rewards for pledging money as well.  Click the photo for more info.

Mini Cleaver

I’ve made a number of herb choppers in the past, you could classify them as mini cleavers if you really wanted to, but they were really made for dicing and mincing herbs and vegetables. The same is not true of this little guy, though it is still suited well for herb chopping with it’s 1/4″ spine you can really do some work with this thing. The weight of it really helps cut through bone or tough cuts of meat. The blade is made of 1075 with the same heat treatment as my larger cleavers, the handle is diver salvaged black oak with nickel silver pins. If you’re interested you can purchase it here.

I’ve been really busy with custom orders lately, but I thought I’d make time to make a knife that doesn’t already have a buyer. This one is diver salvaged red oak from lake superior, copper, and 1084 high carbon steel. The sheath is vegetable tanned leather with a beeswax coating. Go to my etsy from more info.

Boatmen’s Knife.

I was approached by a customer to make something for his friends 60th birthday. He works on boats, and he wanted me to incorporate that in the theme.  The only spec he gave me was that he wanted a 6″ blade.  The handle is diver salvaged flame birch from Superior, antler with a very modest bit of scrimshaw, and anchor chain for the bolster. I really like being able to give people something special that will most likely be passed down generation to generation.
