Standard features and options

STEEL

My standard steel is CPM154. I also work with Damasteel and stainless damascus from Mike Norris.





HANDLE MATERIALS

Any of the following materials are in stock and available at all times:

Black linen Micarta
Maroon linen Micarta
Green Canvas Micarta
Antique Ivory Micarta
Green/black linen Micarta
Red/Black linen Micarta


Stabilized wood – available in several varieties. Will not crack or shrink due to humidity / temperature changes, nor will it turn dark with age and use as natural wood will.

Carbon fiber and G-10 are also available. I can also work with other materials not listed here. Let me know what you want!






BLADE FINISH

Blades are either satin finished or hand rubbed, depending on model. All blades are hollow ground.

Satin finish – Applied with a Scotch Brite belt on the grinder. An economical and practical finish for a working knife, it won’t show scratches easily.

Hand rubbed finish – Applied by hand with fine grit finishing paper running parallel to the edge.

Knives on which a satin finish is standard can be had with a hand rubbed finish at extra cost. Mirror polished or bead blasted bevels are also available.







FILEWORK

Vine pattern filework running from butt to point. Available on most models.







SPACERS

Red or black vulcanized fiber spacers added between the handle material and tang to add a bit of contrast. Available on most fixed blades.







MOSAIC PINS

Available on any fixed blade. These are handmade in my shop – not commercial items.


Mosaic pin style #2




THONG HOLE

Lined with stainless tubing. Available on most fixed blades.





BOLSTERS

All folders are available with or without bolsters. Standard bolster material for folders is titanium. Damascus and mokume are also available, as are G-10, carbon fiber, and Micarta.






The Sportsman and Seneca models are available in either standard (full, untapered tang and fully contoured handles) or slimline (tapered tang and rounded handles) versions.





SHEATHS

All fixed blades include a handmade leather sheath unless kydex is specified by model. Kydex sheaths are also available on any other fixed blade, if desired. Leather sheaths are sized to fit snugly on a 1 3/8” belt. Please let me know if your requirements are different. Kydex sheaths feature a belt loop that doubles as a clip. Several colors of kydex are available, including black, safety orange, and O.D. green. All sheaths are available left-handed at no additional charge..






POCKET CLIPS

Locking liner folders and framelock folders come standard with a titanium pocket clip made in my shop (pictured.) If you prefer a deep-carry (fold over) clip, I can install a commercially made fold over clip instead. A handmade, open top, friction fit leather belt pouch can be substituted for the clip if desired.





LEFT HANDED

Left handed? All knives are available with left handed sheaths. All folders can be made in left handed versions. There is no additional charge for this.
