With every new blade, I endevour to create something that is both beautiful and functional. A blade must feel right in your hand and be able to do the job it was designed for. To carry a well made knife on your belt gives you a sense of pride and security knowing that you have the correct tool to complete the task ahead. The knife is one of the oldest form of tools in the history of mankind dating back to the stone age. There is something quite primal in their use, perhaps something that most of us take for granted?
I have been learning the craft of Bladesmithing for around 10 years now. My first knife was very rustic and primitive but it was sharp and it worked. At the time, I was doing a lot of carving and I took a great deal of pleasure in producing work using a knife that I had made. I was instantly hooked on this all encompassing craft. Learning metology, and leather craft as I went.
