Here is a video which shows how I build a knife. The entire process has been condensed into 30 minutes.
In all probability I will be closing my Etsy shop due to the high service charges they have been imposing. Instead I hope to have my own shopping cart available on this website shortly.
Working on a few knives at present.

How to buy a Jacklore knife?
Well for a number of months now I have had the note saying "Not currently taking orders" But I get many requests daily saying will I accept an order, or am I taking orders, so let me try and make things more clear for you.
No I am no longer taking orders. Will you accept orders in the future? I don't know. I can't answer that.
Not taking Orders means for me:
Less pressure for me, Less emails, I get to build the knives I want to build with the materials I have in stock. Ultimately this means I may be able to produce more knives, earn a little more money and satisfy a few more customers, and possible even have a few days off here and there!
In other words it gives me a better quality of life. A happy knife maker is a good knife maker!
Please bear in mind that upto now I have been building these knives in small batches. I have never been a large producer, and my average output has only ever been 2 to 3 knives per week. I like to get up close and personal with each knife build carefully grinding each knife blade and shaping each handle by hand and eye. Please also understand that I have a few minor disabilities (due to a legacy of a brain tumour that I suffered a few years ago) and this is another reason for my low output.
So How can I buy a knife?
The only way currently to purchase a knife from me is via my Etsy shop. I aim to have a minimum of 3 knives for sale there every week (where possible). The knives are listed at random times so everyone will get a fair chance. I believe I cannot be fairer than that given my current circumstances.
Many thanks for reading this.
