*** I am currently on vacation and products from my shop will not ship until I return on August 21, 2018. Thank you for your patience and apologize for any inconvenience. ***
I am happy to announce we have a winner from the Blade Show raffle! Matthew Sessions is winning a Baby Eagle with a new version leather sheath. These are not yet available to all and I may tweak sheath design some once I put it for sale. This is a very nice design coming from my sheath designer that can be worn vertical or horizontal. I currently only have a few for testing purposes coming this week.
I am back from the Blade Show and enjoyed my time there. I got to meet many and was greet with much attention at the show. I took some photos along the way if you didn’t get a chance to come see me and my products.
Contest is closed. Thanks to all for participating and a very special thanks to Janiece D. for winning!

Did you know I am making big moves? I am trying to clear out many older version knives on the Discount Knives Page Here.
I am also been posting newer styles here recently. I hope you are following me on Facebook as I am getting in the swing of things and see some momentum coming. I really appreciate everyone enjoying a hobby that I turned into something I love.
This is mainly just a test post so that we can get a feel for how this will work. If you are seeing this, then we are doing something right. 🙂
Below are early Pictures of Myself – Working by my Coal Forge. I made this forge by mixing adobe (sand, clay and wood ash) to shape the inside of a large tub. I placed a 1 inch inside diameter pipe in the bottom and drilled 1/4 inch holes. A blower was attached (not in picture). I get up to 1700 degrees using this. I do most of my forging during the cool hours of the night.
I am mostly self taught as I was unable to find an apprenticeship, but I did receive a lot of information from Nepalese Kamis. I have a box of scrap metal as proof. I did learn a lot about knife making from Gurkha’s and Nepalese knife makers.
The hat is to keep my hair from catching fire. Don’t ask how I learned this valuable lesson. I do some of my work at night to avoid Texas Heat.
