Well it has been a crazy and interesting last couple of years. While I was originally going to share a shop with Phil Hartsfield, he had to unexpectedly move out of the area and my shop has been in storage since. I’ve had some great experiences and opportunities in that time, met some amazing people, and hopefully created something awesome for them. Now, though, it seems that it’s time to get back to the forge. I’m looking at a couple shop possibilities right now that should have me back to swinging at hot steel by the end of the year!
I’ve added a couple of my older Phoenix Series Cutlery knives to the ‘For Sale’ listing. The Ambonia Burl Chef knife and the Buckeye Burl paring knife were both prototypes in the series and never previously listed for sale. Current For Sale knives are listed below. This will be the last lot before I get a new shop up and running!
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!
Well it’s that time of year again! The California Custom Knife Show, hosted by Plaza Cutlery, is this coming weekend, October 12-13! The show features individual custom knife makers like myself as well as a few low-production manufacturers. It’s a great opportunity to come out and see some incredibly beautiful knives and meet the makers.
The show is being held at the Embassy Suites on Harbor Blvd. by Disneyland and is in the main Ballroom. The address is: 11767 Harbor Boulevard, Garden Grove, CA 92840.
For more information on the show, check out Plaza Cutlery’s website HERE!!
I’ll have better images of the knives I will have at the show a little later…but here’s a couple pics of the lot!
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!
