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 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!!
The Operator Sheath has been continuously evolving in search for ONE sheath that was versatile enough to effectively carry in almost any position. For me, where I carry a knife is often based on what else I may also be carrying at that time. I always ran into the problem that a sheath designed for one style of carry would never work well if you needed to adjust it. Having multiple sheaths for one knife was considerably annoying. With combining formed Kydex with leather and climbing webbing…I think the current version of this sheath may just have found that perfect functionality!

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!
