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 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!
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!
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!
