The Process

Since I hand forge and hand make each individual knife, the process takes a long time and there are many steps. These steps help ensure that each knife is top quality.

Step 1:

Find steel (we buy brand new steel or find high carbon steel from recycled items)

Step 2:

Heat up the steel in the forge

Step 3: 

Start hitting the hot steel on the anvil with the hammer until you start seeing the knife's shape

Step 4: 

Take the knife's rough shape to the grinder

Step 5: 

Heat treat: quench, temper

Step 6:

Finish shaping the knife on the grinder

Step 7:

Put handle on and shape

Step 8:

Sharpen

Step 9:

Oil entire knife (blade and handle)

Step 10:

Enjoy!
