Introduction and pics of my work - 05/03/19 01:48 PM

Hey guys! I'm the new guy here but I have been making knives for about 4 years now. I was told about this site the other day by some fellow hunters so thought I'd check it out! I see some familiar names here, Bob Jankowski, Mike Conner, and Chops! cheers Anyway, I'm a coach/teacher in Henrietta, TX and a knifemaker in my freetime! I teach Spanish and coach football, girls basketball and golf. My wife is also a coach and we have 2 daughters, my oldest will be a soph and my youngest will be going into 6th grade. So THATS my introduction, now to see if I can load a few pics!haha Looking forward to browsing around all the info here!!

Re: Introduction and pics of my work - 05/03/19 06:44 PM

Thanks guys, I appreciate the welcome! I'm trying to figure out which sponsorship I need to purchase so I'm able to sell my knives here. (I don't wanna be stepping on anyone's toes!) I'll update my info with my website when I'm able to get that done!

Just a little more history on me... bjankowski is one of the reasons that I'm making knives now! Thank you Bob! I saw some of his knives on a different website a few years ago and just decided to jump in and see what I could do! I've been fortunate to meet lots of great makers and ask LOTS of questions to get me to where I am today!

All of my knives are 100% done by me in my little garage shop, including the hand sewn leather sheaths. I make mostly EDC/hunting fixed blades, but also do kitchen knives, filet knives, and slip-joint pocket knives.

Re: Introduction and pics of my work - 05/05/19 03:21 AM

Thanks Mike and Mike!!haha Dink, dont know if you remember me but you made a few sheaths for me in my early days before I decided to learn how to do my own! I made ya a knife a while back too and stopped by to meet ya one day when we were down that way for a motorcycle ride!
Posted By: cabosandinh

Re: Introduction and pics of my work - 05/06/19 07:07 PM

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]
Posted By: Ben Kabisch

Re: Introduction and pics of my work - 05/07/19 03:07 AM

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!

I appreciate it! I would be willing to bet the owners of those knives are on this page!!haha Those 3 were for a father and his 2 sons. Yes, i understand not having all the social media stuff...i probably wouldn't have them if i wasn't a knifemaker and needed a way for them to be seen on a broader scale. I'll keep putting my pics up for people to see here, but I also do custom orders, so if there's something you're looking for, just let me know! Thanks for looking!

I have been working solely on orders for over the past year but covid has slowed it down now. I'm getting to make a few for my "stash" for when someone wants a last second gift. I can make a linerless shadow pattern that would be super light out of micarta or g10...just send me a message here or txt/call me @ (940) 733 64 zero 4 and I can give ya a quote! thank you!

I saw some of his knives on a different website a few years ago and just decided to jump in and see what I could do! I've been fortunate to meet lots of great makers and ask LOTS of questions to get me to where I am today!

All of my knives are 100% done by me in my little garage shop, including the hand sewn leather sheaths. I make mostly EDC/hunting fixed blades, but also do kitchen knives, filet knives, and slip-joint pocket knives.

Yes sir, back years ago I didn't get door to the shop closed correctly and the old lab that I had at the time got in the shop and chewed up two sets of Mammoth Ivory scales that I had just bought and were laying on the bench. That was an expensive mistake on my part.
