    Price Increase Coming - Chance to Save $$$ on Martell Knives

    Hi everyone, It's been a while since I posted in my forum, just a busy person these days. And yet as busy as I am I'm finding it ever more difficult to turn a profit with the crazy rising costs of materials/consumables, as well as the increased communication times, and a stagnated pricing...

    Knife Ban - Switzerland???

    Hi folks, I've got a situation come up that I hope someone here can help with. As many of you know I'm working with Stefan Keller's estate executor Diane. She just contacted me to tell me that a knife she shipped over to Switzerland had been returned to her labeled as "Rejected by Airlines...

    Bread Knife?

    I've been asked to make serrated bread knives for years by many people and I always answer with a "sorry - not going to happen". I feel like this type of thing is a small market but maybe I'm wrong, what do you folks say? If I was going to make them I would basically serrate a suji. That'd be a...

    Wa Handle Construction - Martell Knives

    So this is mostly a post for the other makers out there having issues with making wa handles......but maybe my customers might like to see it too? It's common for most (wa) handle makers today to use a dowel internally to provide stability/security while shaping the handle (off knife). This...

    Vintage Forgecraft Refurb & Rehandle

    This vintage Forgecraft was the closet to being ineligible for a refurb job that I've done so far. The profile showed over-sharpening/over-steeling in front of the heel. The blade faces were worn down to the max with the brick pattern stampings almost completely removed. Lots of scratches and...

    K&S Handle Install

    This customer sent me a replacement handle that he purchased from James over at along with his knife, to have me perform the handle exchange/upgrade. The handle is made from ebony, has a blond buffalo horn ferrule, and is K&S' "heart shaped" configuration. And what a nice...

    Covid-19 & Martell Knives

    We are still sharpening at our normal quick turnaround times, experiencing no delays! :cool: For knifemaking, handle work, major repairs/mods I'm limiting (for the foreseeable future) what I'll accept so that I don't get ahead of...

    Covid-19 Sharpening Time?

    So now that many (most?) of you are at home waiting on becoming sick maybe it'd be a good time to get out your knives and stones and put some practice sharpening work in? If nothing else you'll stave off boredom and get those knives sharp again. :)

    Soldering Bolsters

    Not many makers do this these days and that's because it kinda sucks to do. Lots of extra work, and gobs of frustration while learning, but it gets easier each time it's done. I LOVE the end results so it's worth it to me to do it once in awhile. The picture shows the joint still rough...
