do you forge and make your own blanks or do you buy blanks and finish off ?

I am dissatisfied with the mass steel available (154, D2, s30 . )

some of the steels I've been very impressed with were Swedish or Japanese

would like to know what steels you forge /have ?

I sure do sir! I still love that knife also. I have quiet a few from different makers so it's hard to pick a favorite but that one and one from Mr Conner are right at the top. They both get equal duty as edc, and I took apart a pig around christmas with the one you made me.[Linked Image]

I appreciate ya not showing that blade Mike!!haha I've gotten quite a bit better since back then!!lmao (Love the sheath BTW)


As for how I make my knives, I do not forge, I'm a stock removal guy (my back wouldnt let me swing a hammer all day even if I wanted to!ha) I buy my steel in 3'-4' sections in different widths and most all of it is 1/8 thick (I have some 3/32 also) The steels that I use are 154cm stainless, 1084 carbon, 0-1 carbon, and my folders are all cpm154. I take pride in making a great knife (and sheath) from scratch. I cut out my own profiles and no 2 of my knives are the exact same because most of my knives do not have templates (I do have a couple). I grind my bevels freehand and prefer a hollow grind but do a flat grind on requested orders.

Thank you for the question!

Anything else I can answer for ya, please ask!
