IT ALL STARTS AT THE
GRINDER

I use stock removal, which means
starting with a Damascus billet or blade
steel bar stock then profiling and  
grinding it into a knife blade. I freehand
hollow grind most knives which I
prefer, as well as some convex and full
flat grinds on hammer & anvil forged
blades. The hardening and tempering
of the steel is all done in my shop. All
of my knife blades are Rockwell tested
with my Ames hardness tester. It takes
all the guess work out of making a high
performance knife. USERS
