Hi from Michael Rader + a few pics
Hi guys. I was invited here by Stephan Fowler, so blame him :-)
I live near Seattle in Washington State. Earned my Mastersmith rating in 2010 and have been making knives and swords since around 1992 or so.
This one has damascus made by David Lisch and some engraving by Tom Ferry.
This one is 52100 with Goddards famous "mustard finish" pre-patina treatment.
So, that's just a few of my old ones. I sell most of my kitchen knives through Blade Gallery/ http://www.epicedge.com and I also take a few custom orders. I'm not going to Blade this year, but plan to go back in 2012.
Please feel free to ask any questions and visit my website: http://www.raderblade.com if you are bored. Thanks and I'm going to have to poke around here a little more....
