Working custom straight knives of my design:
I forge my own Damascus, cable, 1084/15n20, 01/mild. Most of my knives are made with 1/4 inch tool steels depending on what I’m trying to achieve. They vary. Mostly 01 tool steel, some 1084, and lately some out of W2.
Varied handle materials:
First knife in 1998. I am a full time maker apprenticed under ABS Master smith Wally Hayes.
