A word on the Japanese style blades.. I am pretty much done with the research for my 4th book, the working title: "The Hand Crafted Blade: Tools and Techniques for Craftsmen". Once I finish up the few pieces I have left I will no longer be making any Japanese inspired blades. So if you see one you like, you best get it. There will be 125 pieces total. This is not many at all when you consider I have made thousands of blades over the years. Once these are done, they are done.. No more will be made...

The Japanese blades will be marked "Hage Bokatsu", along with my chop on one side on the tang and then signed with my signature on the other.

We have also added two new sections, the "Weird and Wonderful", these are items that usually do not fit into what I usually make, and my "What the Hell was I Thinking" section where all the other even weirder stuff will be... so be sure to take a look. 


So with all this now done....

The items that are currently available are:

 

 

Item. No 01 is a very WICKED Pattern Welded  "Bowie" pattern knife  done in my "Solar Storm" pattern in 1095 and L-6 steels...The 12" long and 1 3/4" wide blade show great patterning. These is one  1/2 blade length fuller on each side of the blade... this is an IMPRESSIVE knife.. The fittings are a mix of German silver and coin  silver that I alloy in house and pour into the stock sizes I need...

As you can see the patterning is breathtaking and mesmerizing .. you can easily "get lost" in its beauty and symmetry . The contrast is dramatic...

The grip is my blackened "Bovine Ivory" set with matching silver studs... Elegant yet deadly... I made a "skull crusher" pommel for when it really gets "up close and personal"... This is a very diabolical yet in some ways..angelic knife done in a style from yesteryear...

Overall this knife is very simple, yet elegant..and it shows great "character"... This blade would be very "at home" on a riverboat in the 1850's or in San Fransisco in the 1880's, this blade would be well in style on the belt of a well heeled gentleman..or maybe an outlaw or a lawman... Very 19th Century in style.

With an overall length of 18" has a black leather sheath and ready to go!! An elegant knife from a time past..

Item No. 2 is a very NICE pattern welded Rifleman's Knife. the 13 1/2" long blade is in my "Solar Storm" pattern welded from 1095 and L-6 steels. The blade has a false edge on the blade's clip with a single fuller on each side.

The pattern is simply mind blowing, with dramatic contrast..

The grip is a single piece of my "fossil Bovine Ivory" set with bronze studs. The guard, bolster and pommel plate are all phosphor bronze

This is a classic style and very elegant and it makes a very bold "visual statement".  Overall length is 20". Black sheath.
