I have been making knives for about half a year now. Its my newest hobby and i need to share it here. These are all of the knives that i have created to date. In no particular order of creation, just a heap of images of my work thus far. I hand forge Each knife at the Pit Meadows Museum Forge (thanks Jen!), then create handles out of wood or Antler, and fit it all together (much easier said than done). Then shape each blade with Files and sand paper, mostly by hand. And when each knife is complete i design, cut, shape and dye each sheath all by hand. These are all truly hand made knives.
I have put the care and thought into these as i have done with my painting, video and print work. Creating knives is simply an extension of my skill set into the realm of creating usable yet aesthetic knives.
I fell in love with Scandinavian knives. Most of my knives reflect this aesthetic.
In the end…after all of this work, i am giving all of these away to my loved ones and friends.
My personal favorite Knife, another walnut handled pukko (good for skinning)
I just finished this one today. A maple handled small skinning pukko (maple care of Dustin Ellis and his early days in the woods)
