I was commissioned to build a fixed blade, EDC cleaver. Challenge accepted! I drew up a quick design and after getting customer approval, got to work.
I needed a project to keep busy while waiting on supplies for my next big project. I needed something simple, because there wasn’t much time before new supplies arrived, and I needed something small because I’m almost out of steel. So I started the mini cleaver.
Last September a friend asked me to make them a knife and showed me a couple of pictures of what they had in mind. Continue reading First Commisioned Knife Done!

Work is finally done on the Camping Knife Protoype.
I scrounged together several hours this weekend to wrap up the first neck knife project. It started out as a series of experiments, some successful, some not-so-much. Continue reading Neck Knife #1 Complete
Sweltering heat and 100% humidity won’t keep me out of my shop! I managed to start working on the handles for neck knife #1. Continue reading Neck Knife Update

I just finished a new paring knife. This is by far one of the best paring knives to come out of the workshop. I typically stick with a drop point on all of my knives, I don’t know why other than they naturally compliment my style. This guy has stainless steel pins, ebony handles, and O1 tool steel metal. This is the first time I tried anything really artistic with the handle. I wanted the profile of the handle to look to have a diamond shape with a protruding edge that ran parallel to the top and bottom of the handle and it really paid off! Its comfortable in the hand and its really easy to keep a grip on. I cant wait to make more of these.
Also, this was the second knife off of my grizzly 2 x 72 sander. I love having a grinder, it has cut my working time in half, which allows me to spend more time doing the thing I really enjoy, playing with more designs! More knives in, more knives out.
