Custom Made Knives

From a young age I have always wanted to be a blacksmith. However, as life happens, I became a BMW technician. In 2017 I started playing around with a coal forge and forged out a few simple knives & of course I was hooked. I started to collect the most necessary & basic tools I can afford to make knives. 

Two years later and  I'm still making knives as a hobby but my goal is to one day do it full time as well as compete with professionals in the field of knife making. I love forging one of a kind, personalized knives. I prefer forging over stock removal as it feels like I'm literally beating some of my essence into the knife I'm making. 

Giving it a soul, so to speak. I'm still perusing my goal of becoming a journeyman blade-smith & looking forward to road ahead.
