Derosier Shop Fire Benefit


Joshua States

Recommended Posts

Derosier Shop Fire. Unfortunately earlier this week Adam & Haley DesRosiers lost their entire shop and contents to a fire. To add to the disaster, both of the family dogs were caught in the fire as well. There is a Facebook page set up for sales and auctions of knives and other stuff to help them rebuild.

 

I am donating this Bowie knife for sale. The blade is 7 inches long, forged from 1 inch O-1 drill rod. OAL is 11.5 inches. The fittings (guard, spacer, and frame) are copper/nickel-silver Mokume of my own making. It comes with a hand carved leather sheath. Handle is stabilized Black Ash burl with nickel-silver pins. Price: $500 (includes shipping) Send the $ to Adam's PayPal account and PM me your address. I will ship when notified that payment is received. Thank you, Joshua States.

I am donating these two blades as well. They are 1095/15N20 Damascus of my own making. The Dagger is 9 twisted bars in my Buckeye pattern. 10.5 inches from shoulders to tip and 1 inch wide. The Bowie is W-pattern with pure nickel highlight layers. 7.75 inches from shoulders to tip and 1.375 inches wide at the ricasso. Both blades are heat treated, machine ground to 320 grit, lightly etched and blued to show pattern. Ready for you to finish grinding and attach fittings and handle. Price: $150 each or both for $250. Send the $ to Adam's PayPal account and PM me your address. I will ship when notified that payment is received. Thank you, Joshua States.

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.
