I've found myself a new hobby. I recently began making knives. For the first six I finished some unfinished Sabatier Blanks that were drop forged around the 20's. It was a very slow process; I first had to anneal the blades to soften the steel, next I filed the bevels by hand.. a few hours per knife (tedious work!).. After all six were filed I heat treated and tempered them which hardens them, but also leaves a black scaling across the blade. I then clean off the scale and finish the blades. I custom make the handles choosing woods that best match the blades finish, which are then oiled with Organic walnut oil to help preserve the wood.
Many many more to come! For custom orders please contact me.
