Let me introduce myself

Greg Dash

Recommended Posts

Hello, everybody.

I just joined this forum and decided to introduce myself

Name is Greg Dash and I am in Staten Island, NY

Yes, New York (nobody is perfect)

From what i saw - most of the makers on this forum are blacksmits.

I am not. I do "stock removal"

Mostly - just working knives.

Here is some of my work:


My "signature skinner" - probably the most popular model. For the most parts I make it out of D2.

I've spent some time in Bob Dozier's shop and got hooked on D2

Handle materials - mainly micarta and wood. Some corean.

Well, here goes nothing:





And here are the same model with different handles:







Well, I have some more, but do not whant to overload my first post.

dont beat yourself up for not being a FORGING smith... a LOt of REALLY good knives come from stock removal, and i think most of us have made great knives from that... you sure look like you have the craft down to a GREAT art :D

i know i have to stay with stock removal for a while more too :D :Dand mine are FAR from your level of quality :D


welcome to the forum, im sure you will find a LOT of inspiration, and plenty of new friends :)

Welcome aboard, Greg.


Nothing wrong with stock removal, except it's not as much fun as forging. ;)


That said, I tried to forge D2 once. Once... :wacko: It works, but wow, does that stuff not want to move under the hammer.


Nice looking stuff, especially the stag handled one on the jeans.

Greg everything looks great. The Dozier influence comes through but you also have some style of your own. keep on grinding! ~Herb
