Each of the knives I make is unique, and while I do make a few standard patterns, generally I prefer not to reproduce designs. Here you see the actual knives that I have completed and are ready to be purchased. If you have a design of your own that you would like me to make (even if its just a vague idea!), then let me know and I will see what i can do  ;-)

In addition to these I sell a few knives through other outlets, for these please see the bottom of this page

I write a small certificate out for each knife I make, detailing the materials used and proof that I made it. If you would like me to print a copy out and send it with your knife, then please let me know.
