My 1000th Knife!! Very special design - ( LAPIS-LAZULI ) handle, fine hand engraving with gold (18k) inlay in fitted walnut case.Only the best for my 1000th creation.

These knives pictured in this section reflect the wide variety of designs that typify some of my most recent work. BG-42 steel seems to be the best general purpose steel available to knife makers today. The combination of toughness, stain resistance and edge holding is hard to beat. D2 has been my long time favorite for its toughness but is more prone to stain than BG-42 D2 is used for paper cutter blades as well as carpet cutting shears...both very demanding tasks. I'll be glad to work with your preference. I have some of the finest handle materials available at any price...gold lip clammother of pearl to some of the gorgeous acrylic stabilized fancy wood burls. I still recommend linen base micarta for maximum durability for field use. It is available in many grades and colors. Let me know your specific needs.
