    San mai kitchen knife

    Wrought iron, pure nickel and high carbon steel some stabilized ebony and stabilized pear wood. Forged the blade over a year ago and I’m glad I finally found time to finish it.

    Stainless San mai

    If you clean your steel and keep them flat almost any steel will forge weld in a canister or with a seem welded around the billet ( san mai ) I have used O1, 52100, OFS ( old file steel ) , O2, White paper and stainless 316, 304, Aebl, 420...... I heat the billet at forge welding temperature for 15 - 20 min before the first weld and also for at least 10 minutes when welded or between welds. Steels have to be the right thickness in san mai .....if not the core will be either to thick or too thin or there will be way too much grinding on the outer layers. I still get this wrong although I try to keep a record of my works. I have never used a tube - so looking forward to seeing the result

    Damascus kitchen knife

    Made this knife for my nephew Anders , who married his lovely Isabella last saturday. Twist damascus, G10 and stabilized elm. Matching leather sheath ....Did not really know if I could match the sheath with the wood ....but if I had failed I would have colored the sheath black to cover the failed attempt.

    A couple of knives for an exhibition.

    Very nice indeed .........still remember visiting your shop back in 2006 .....I was travelling NZ for 6 weeks with my family and we suddenly saw a sign with a knife on it .....decided to follow the sign and ended up at your shop ....did not forge my knives at that time so it was a whole new thing to me. Cannot remember if it was Dunedin .....?
