    The last of the gold nugget bowies for awhile at least. This one is going to oil rich Saudi Arabia thus the name "Black Gold" It has minimum engraving so my money was better spend on gold inlays by Jere Davidson. cold rolled frame, spacers and guard. Culpepper amber stag scales held on with 6...

    Jesse James

    Jesse has been emailing me and asking about etching damascus to get some contrast. He has been forging for about 5 years now and has been developing a 1911 pistol made from his own damascus. This is the result. I would love to have this! I'm hoping to coax him on here to give some details of...

    My Version of the Vertical Forge

    I've used a horizontal propane forge for many years and had issues with it. I still have it and wouldn't sell it but with 3 burners on top there are hot spots not to mention the floor is always contaminated with flux. I went to a vertical forge about 5 years ago. I made it myself from 16"...

    Thats not knife related

    No knives in these pictures. Just the cutest bird ever. I bought my wifie a conure for Mothers day and she has so much fun with it. I had no idea birds were so entertaining, this one loves to do anything we do. This is the "pond less waterfall" we made this summer for our backyard.

    Harley Chain My Way

    I can't stand it anymore, I've got to post a WIP on something. Our own KnifeDog Laurence sent me a Harley primary chain and wanted me to forge it into a billet. Actually he had a Harley drive chain but I knew from experience that it would give me trouble with all the chain lube, rust and dirt...

    The No Rules Bowie

    The No Rules Bowie (new pics added) This is the last bowie I've made. I call it the No Rules Bowie because it doesn't follow any other bowie that I'm aware of in construction, size, sheath, guard ect. The blade is double mosaic and measures 16" long the entire knife is close to 21" long. The...

    Forge Welded Harley Chain Boot Knife

    Laurence got me fired up to forge some Harley primary chain so we each ordered one but while we waited for them to come in I found one of my old billets and cut out a small dagger style boot knife. This one only has one side as its a "true Boot Knife" and will easily fit inside against the leg...

    D2, Muskox w/red liner and 416ss

    Here is one of my favorites and I had to show somebody. At 4" long closed I suppose it qualifies for a back pocket. The muskox scales are thin enough and highly polished so they are nearly translucent with the red liners.
