Forging allows a Bladesmith the freedom to create the knife both he and the customer want.   I like to forge traditional patterns, such as; Bowie Knives, Daggers, Hunters, Skinners, Drop Points, Camp Knives and Axes.

A  variety of styles are available, such as; 

Bowie Knives, Daggers, Hunters, Skinners,

Drop Points, Camp Knives, Kitchen Knives, Walking Sticks and Axes.
