  2. For the desk top warrior ;-) Very thin 4" blade with an overall length of 8.75" Damascus, mokume, ebony, and silver. I will make a simple, but elegant leather cover before sending it out the door. High resolution images, so you can click, then zoom in to get a better look at the damascus and mokume. Price is $850.00 Let me know if you have any questions :-)
  3. Simple little project for sale at $600. Tightly patterned damascus blade with an edge length a hair over 3" with a mokume band transitioning to the African Blackwood handle.
  4. I have been on a bit of a mokume kick as of late. That and working in a fashion that requires me to look at things a bit more closely, and work a bit more tightly. The mokume collar was formed, then worked onto and soldered around a metal core. Each time I have made a knife with a mokume band, I have used a different technique/construction. Each time I learn something new. The blade is 15n20 and 1084, the handle is cocobolo, the mokume is copper, silver, 5%Ag 95%Cu, and 20%Ag 80%Cu, and the inlay for the sheath is salmon skin.
  5. SOLD 105mm edge length Sole authorship Damascus blade, flamed walnut handle, shibuichi spacer, silver pin Very light, very comfortable in the hand. Comes with a brown ostrich leg sheath. Price is $450.00. PayPal and (basic) shipping included
  6. A sizable chuck of time went into this project, and I am very proud of the results. The mokume is fabricated from silver, copper, and two different copper/silver alloys I cast and milled for the project. The rest of the fittings are made from the same metals. The blade is 15n20 and 1084 and has an 8 3/4 edge length and is 13 3/4 overall. The area just behind the guard was fabricated hollow and has an African Blackwood core while the pommels fabrication is mostly solid. As a result, the blade is very light and very well balanced. The handle itself is also African Blackwood. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask
  7. A fairly recent project, small size and tedious to make. The edge length is 2 5/8" and the handle is African Blackwood The mokume is copper, silver, 5%Ag 95%Cu, 20%Ag 80%Cu. The later alloys I cast myself. The damascus is 15n20 and 1084. I will be making a scabbard for this piece shortly and will post up photos when it is finished :-) This one is a personal favorite
  8. Up for sale is a project I have dubbed Walnut Thief. This fighting knife has an edge length of 8 5/8" and an OAL of 13 3/4". The guard is carved from phosphor bronze while the collar is fabricated from mokume, made with silver, copper, and two shibuichi alloys. I made the mokume and cast the shibuichi alloys. The spacers are silver, the handle is made from a beautiful piece of flamed walnut, and the blade is made from my own damascus. The leather sheath is inlaid with black stingray skin, front and back. The catch on the front matches the guard. The price of the project is $3,200 Thank you for looking :-)
  9. Up for sale is a short yataghan style blade. The cutting edge is 10" and the OAL is 15.25". Damascus blade and bolsters are made from 15n20 and 1084, mokume spacers are bronze, silver, and copper. MS JD Smith made the mokume. Scales are fossil ivory and each one flairs out to 3/8" thick at the end of the handle. This project is full of curves, there are no flat surfaces to be found. No longer available through Bladesmiths Forum! If you have any questions, feel free to ask :-)
  10. For sale are two pieces I made with Jason Morrissey utilizing some of his beautiful steel. Each blade fits securely inside of a purple heart scabbard, the smaller (bottom) with a dark blue leather backing, and the larger (top) with a loop and exposed wood. The blades are made from 15n20, 1084, and 1090. The handles are bloodwood with silver and wrought iron spaces, and bronze pins.The wrought iron has a black oil patina. The larger has a 4.25" edge and is 8.75" OAL. The smaller has a 3.625" edge and is 8" OAL. Thank you for looking :-) (Large) (Small)
  11. Here is a recent commission I finished up. Liner lock, sole authorship, pattern welded blade and bolsters, SS liners, SS bushing, 0.005'' phosphor bronze washers, 0-80 machine screws, and black lip MOP scales. This was my first go at a project like this, and it was a lot of fun to make. I look forward to continuing to explore the world of folders. Comments, questions, and critiques are more then welcome.
  12. 3 5/8" blade, 7 7/8" overall Sole Authorship Hands down one of my favorite projects I have made. Small and functional, beautiful steel that can be appreciated far away as well as up close. The spacer is mokume with fine lines of copper, silver, and bronze. African Blackwood handle with a very smooth matte finish. Asking price is $650.00 Domestic shipping included
  13. Sleek mid-sized knive. Sole authorship. 4.25" slow twist pattern welded blade, African Blackwood handle and scabbard, silver spacers and pins, wrought iron spacer with a glossy black patina. 8.5" overall. The knife pressure fits into the scabbard for a secure fit.
  14. This is my first straight razor, but not my last! The blade has an edge length of 2.5in. It is composed of a pattern welded steel blade (15n20 and 1084), buffalo horn scales, and silver pins The box is made of cedar, rosewood, padauke, and cherry burl. The "nails" are silver and there is mokume-gane of silver, bronze, and copper inlayed beneath the cherry burl visible through the holes left by a knot when i book matched the piece. The price is-Sale pending
  15. This is a blade which I started on my own with a little bit of steel I had left over from a short sword that I was (and still am) working on. JD did me the favor of finishing polishing it for me as I was still a student at Massachusetts College of Art and Design and very short on time with finals. Upon seeing the steel JD asked me if he could come up with and make a handle and scabbard for it. How could I turn down an offer like that? The images that follow show what can be created when two individuals combine powers.
  16. This is my favorite project to date. It is an 11.5 inch blade, 17.75 inches overall. A very high layer count integral, around 2,500 layers. Low layer count damascus "ears" on the handle. The blade and the scabbard are both made from bocote, pattern welded steel and silver. The scabbard also has a hand tooled leather back with the loop inlaid into the wood so that it does not protrude uncomfortably. Price Sold!
  17. Blade Pattern Welded Steel (15N20, 1084), Mastodon Ivory, Silver, Gold, Green Diamonds Scabbard Flame Maple, Leather, Silver, Brass I am currently re-making the handle and scabbard. They were damaged, and I decided I would rather have a second go at it then fix the damage. Pictures of the update will soon follow

The scales and scabbard are made of Kingwood. The back of the scabbard is leather and it is held together with copper "staple rivets" Let me know what you think and thank you for looking!
