Here is a video which shows how I build a knife. The entire process has been condensed into 30 minutes.
UPDATE Friday 24th April
I am working on a small number of knives, Classics and Hornet's and hope to have some knives available next week.
My wife is home now after recovering from a major heart surgery. She is well and progressing in the right direction but it does mean I am having to do a lot of the household chores and caring for my wife, so not as much time as I would like to spend in the workshop building the knives.
FROM NOW ON: Knife sales on Fridays at 18:00 UTC (when knives are finished and ready)
Please read below thanks
Any knives I have for sale will be listed on the "Available" page on Fridays only, so this should save you from having to keep checking.
At the moment I am having to manually manage every knife sale and email, and during sales the emails are sent to a fro in real time.
This is time consuming for me and bothersome for the prospective buyer, so I hope soon to have a shopping cart option
Please check knives available page for any knives available for sale .
Starting on Heat treatment of stainless steel next week
Please have some form of ID ready for when knives become available
Passport/drivers licence. You must be 18 years of age or older.
Please check knives available page or click the button above.
I do not take orders. I prefer to build my knives and work without the pressure that an order book places on me.
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?
I hope to have knives for sale here regularly.
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. Demand is high with customers from around the world and I am just a one man band doing the best I can!
Many thanks for reading this.
