Off the bench

Hey guys and gals. Haven't posted much, I'm more of a reader than a contributor to the forum. I thought I'd share some of my latest projects.. as much of the material as possible is sourced in N.Y. and the majority of the natural materials is from right here in the Adirondacks... Enjoy.

Do you make your own damascus, or buy billets? Are they ground to shape or forged to shape?

I get my Damascus from Lacy Smith in Alabama.. I do both but the majority are ground to shape or stock removal..

Wow. I agree with the above comments. Really beautiful work. I love the shape of your blades. You can be proud of your work, that's for sure.

Whoa baby! Would almost be a shame to use such a beautiful tool. Really like what you do on the spine. Gives it some very nice character, not something you see everyday. Echoing the comments of others, very nice and beautiful work.

Nice work. Nothing beats a handmade knife when it's put to the intended use, like field dressing a deer!
