Here are some knives made by Tanner! He has done a terrific job and is only 14 years old. So, don't let your age discourage you from making knives. Just be sure to get help! Tanner has a mentor right here to help him.


Here is an astonishingly beautiful knife made by Dewey in memory of his uncle Jim. It sits on Jim's anvil. Wow, this thing is absolutely amazing. It has a stag handle and the blade is made from german (Mercedes spring) steel. He made the fuller with a home made spring forger fuller. It was made with an extra long handle to fit a man with large hands!

He tells us a bit about the making of this knife:

The only part of old Jim I bought was the handle and the pommel I made the guard myself from about 3 or 4 pieces of brass same with. The hex part is 4 pieces of 1/16 brass flat pinned with brass rods. the center of the guard white color is a bunch of silver nickels melted and cast in green sand.



Here are some knives made by Dewey. He has been making knives for over 40 years now and it shows! They are spectacular and are all forged from either 1084 or 1095. The skinner with the Ambrosia Maple handle is from a Mercedes spring. He also has a great knife making tip for us: Another tip is watch for the shadows in the steel before quenching. it looks like a shadow inside moving around this is the carbon in solution. this is the transformation stage.

These knives are currently being worked on by Dewey.
