I completed a commission for a knife that I got during the NC state fair. A man gave me a piece of twist pattern welded steel that he forged in his late father's shop and wanted me to make a knife out of it. The blade is made with my wedged tenon pommel design. The butt plate is made of an off cut of the billet, but that was too thin to make the groove in the middle, so I copper brazed a piece of mild steel to the end. the pin is made from a hardened and tempered piece of 5160. The handle is stabilized curly maple.

I also made a skinning knife for a different commission, as well as a small utility fixed blade.

The smaller one has a recessed tenon with an aluminum wedge. The handle is paduk and zircote on the end for wear resistance.
