  1. Hi all just want to show you my second ever knife. I have a very active mind and when it comes to deciding what I would like to make the list is just too long for me to choose, so I decided to make knives as gifts for family and friends. The first of which is this one. My friend has just gone out to do his second stint in south Africa working with an anti-poaching unit to protect rhinos and elephants. He was looking for a nice knife to take with him and I told him I would make him one. After a short discussion on what he wanted ( basically leaving it up to me) I drew a few designs and he picked his favourite. Here it is a Bowie fighter, 12.5" overall, 8.5" blade forged from land rover leaf spring and hand sanded to 400grit satin finish. Brass guard, wild African olive wood handle and a brass/turquoise pin. The knife taught me an extremely large amount, the learning curve was like climbing a shear cliff face but I took it in individual steps instead of thinking about the process as a whole too much after the design phase. Hope you like it any feedback is welcome as I want to know what I can do better next time.
  2. The darkest blade I've ever made, death in the night. Forged 80CrV2 finished in Dura-Bake enamel, black G10 scales with mosaic and copper pins. "Mango knife" This customer had a favorite knife with a very specific shape that he used to prepare fruit, I replicated the blade with superior steel and updated handle shape. 15N20 blade with copper, buffalo horn, and Brazillian bloodwood. Comments and critique always welcome

  5. So I have a few projects to through up as I have not been on here in a while. I figured I would space the postings out a little bit though. BloodwoodBlade Pattern Welded Steel (15N20, 1084), Silver, Bloodwood Scabbard Bloodwood, Leather, Brass I hope you like it!
  6. So, remember the picture I posted a while back of the piece I was working on that I was likely going to send to the YouTuber Skallagrim? Turns out, that will not be the one I send. I got a design from him yesterday, and will begin work on it soon. I will post pictures as I progress with it.
  7. This is kind of a fantasy style dagger that I put together over the past few months. I based the design off of the elven daggers found in Skyrim, but I also drew a lot of inspiration from the weapons found in the Jackson rendition of LOtR. This is probably one of the most put together blades that I've ever produced, and I wanted to show it off. I sold this to a family member for $170, which is a little less than I wanted but what I offered because he was family. Blade is 7 1/4", 13 1/2" OAL, 1/8" thick. It's just shy of 2" wide at the base of the blade. The blade was made from an old masonry saw blade that I picked up at a hammerin about 4 years ago. I treated it like 1085, and that worked pretty well. The handle is made from recycled cherry flooring, and the bolsters from cultured marble from an old countertop. The pins are all 1/8" brass.
  8. I could not resist the lines of the over lap on the edge of this billet. This is a small knife, only 9" Oal Damascus blade hand carved Elk brow tine for the handle and the lanyard bead Heat colored bronze guard. It will go in an open spine sheath if I ever get to my leather work. KT you want to do some charity work. Thanks for looking!!! P.S I beat the crap out of this blade to make sure there wasn't a cold shut in the middle. She's solid and sharp!!! Kip
  9. Hey all its been awhile. This is my first time working with cable. I was lucky enough to get to see a demonstration last summer at Bowies hammer-in from cable to blade that helped a lot! The fittings are copper and the handle is blackwood, Oal is 12 1/2". Thanks for looking let me know what you think! Kip
  10. Hi All, This is the most technicality challenging knife to date also probably my nicest. Its done in the old school fashion bolsters front and back with the scales between. This knife is entirely made from Aldo’s 154-CM that would be the central blade as well as the four bolsters. The wood scales are matching Bocote polished to a very high luster. Shaving sharp (I mean it) hardened and triple tempered to a very solid Rockwell 59. Red spacers and brass pins finish it off. A special knife done slowly with a lot of care. The Specifics: Material- All steel is 3/16ths 154-CM Hardness- Rockwell 59 Over All length- 9.25 inches Blade length to the bolster- 4.5 inches Blade at it’s widest- 1.5 inches Handle thickness at the bolsters 3/8 inch Handle thickness at the center- 7/8ths height is 1 inch very firm in the hand Scales- Matched Bocote polish to a high luster File work on the spine for your thumb to rest on if need be 6 1/8th inch brass pins and 2 red fiber spacers compleat it. Weight- 8.6 ounces I have a medium to large hand and there is still room between the hand guards (bolsters). This is a really really nice knife a true Hunter/Fighter Price is $245.00 plus $7.50 for USPS priority shipping. If you want a Kydex belt sheath add another $25.00 you wont be disappointed. Otherwise it’s up to you. Enjoy the pictures comments are always welcome.
