I’ve added four new knives up for sale! Two Phoenix Series kitchen knives…a slicer and a new design I call the Roll-E-Chopper, sporting a beautiful and extremely rare English Yew wood handle cut from Sherwood Forest, England! I also have a Deimos, one of the most popular Operator Series knives, with a beautiful Bocote wood handle and another brand new design called the Elk Hunter. Check them out HERE!
I’ve also added a few new pictures of some other Phoenix Series knives that have been sold. There is a new Manzanita handle chefs knife and two new Phoenix Paring knives…one with Ebony and the other with Goncalo Alves. Check them out HERE!
I’ve just completed the newest addition to my Operator Series blades…the Urinagi Short Sword. Based on a Japanese Nagamaki blade, the Urinagi is scaled down to 30 inches overall making it an excellent companion for survival or tactical applications. This has already become one of my favorite blades and you can be sure I’ll make more of these! Click the images below to go to the Urinagi Short Sword page!
Stay tuned for a the next installment in my Crafting Method Video Series: Heat Treating & Final Sanding!
Every year, Knife Rights…an organization dedicated to providing an effective voice to influence public policy and to oppose efforts to restrict the right to own, use and carry knives and edged tools…holds its Ultimate Steel Spectacular fundraising campaign. Donations to the Knife Rights Foundation give you chances to win any of over $100,000 in custom, hand made, limited edition and production knives, celebrity signed knives, guns and more. Every prize has been generously donated by custom knife makers and production companies, so 100% of the proceeds supports Knife Rights’ pro-knife legislative initiatives. Check out more about the Knife Rights organization and the 2013 Ultimate Steel Spectacular at: www.KnifeRights.org/UltimateSteel.
I recently completed my donation to the Ultimate Steel Spectacular…the Deimos model from my Operator Series pictured below. You can check out my page along with all the other blades donated HERE!!
I’ve added pictures of the prototypes of my new Phoenix Series kitchen knives. The fruition of years of experience in the sales of high end kitchen cutlery matched with gathering feedback from the chefs who actually use them, have heavily influenced the design of these knives. Check out all the Phoenix Series knives HERE!
The beautiful ceramics that are photographed with these knives are hand crafted by local Southern California artist Delphine. I urge you check out more of her amazing work at her website, Humble Ceramics!
The next video installment of the Crafting Method section is online! My apologies on the delay between the forging and the grinding videos…the rest of the series will be released much more frequently.
This video covers the profiling, scale removal, and rough hand sanding of the blade up to the point that it’s ready for heat treating. You can see the entire crafting process outlined in the Crafting Method section of this website!
I recently finished another Deimos model. While this knife was a custom order and has been sold, I’ve posted up the pictures on the Deimos page! The handle scales came out beautifully.
The Erebus is the latest addition to the Operator Series. With a blade of only 3 inches long, it’s the perfect EDC (Every Day Carry) fixed blade! Click the images below to go to the Erebus page!
Stay tuned for a the debut of my new Phoenix Series kitchen cutlery!
I’ve completed a new Ares model and listed it online. It’s available for sale exclusively through Plaza Cutlery. Click the images below to go to the Ares page!
Stay tuned for a new release in the Operator Series, the Erebus. I will also have the next Crafting Method video covering ‘Grinding’ online soon!
Welcome to the new re-design of my website! As the tools and technology of web design progress…I try and make sure my own site is making use of it. This site has a real-time scaling feature that will actually change the visual layout of the site for mobile devices with small screens. I’m testing this out here so if the layout looks messed up to you, please let me know! And also let me know what device you were trying to view it on.
I will be greatly expanding my video section in the near future. Along with finishing up the ‘Crafting Method’ video series, I will be adding a new ‘Featured Knife of the Month’ video series. These videos will pick one knife per month, and take you through the specific construction process for ‘that’ knife. You will be able to watch the journey of one knife from the first hand sketch up until the completed knife is being photographed for my site! This video series will start after all of the ‘Crafting Method’ videos have been released.
As always, thanks for the feedback and support and don’t hesitate to message me with any questions or concerns!
