Big things on the horizon.

As summer is winding down,  we are just gearing up.  We are working on getting our production line of knives rolling. We will still be making one of a kind creations as well.  This winter we will also be working on our kitchen knife line where we will be experimenting with several high tech steels including D2 and 52100 in order to find the perfect steel for our kitchen knives.  Look for the line to be ready in the spring /summer of 2017.  We look forward to a busy winter and look forward to being more high profile come next year. 12322496_1688328164745980_8200440077524379629_o

Wood Burn a Viking Flying Fish?

So I try to make handles of my Seax interesting.  There are not many surviving handles in archaeology finds so I try and put my place in the life of a viking .   I imagine the viking ship splitting the waves and flying fish scattering in front of the bow.   Though found in all oceans they tend to be more abundant in warmer waters. I guess my viking was one of the ones who ranged far south.    The shape of it inspired a fish and so the wood burner added that bit of extra to the maple handle.  It even has a small purple heart inlay in the top with the watchful eye of Odin.

Slow day but Slow Food was at the Market!

The weather was hot at the Cape Cod Beer Farmers Market and people seemed to stay home where it was cool instead of drinking beer in the sun . However the day was not a complete loss we sharpened some knives and sold a couple of knives. We had our newest folders on display as well as a new damascus paring knife.  Matt from TF Woodcraft was with us with his amazing cutting boards and kitchen utensils.  Slow Food Cape Cod on facebook  also gave us a mention yesterday when they saw us at the Cape Cod Beer Farmers Market so one good turn deserves another.   We love the slow food movement.  People need to get back to making food from scratch instead of eating processed and fast food which is garbage.  You can check out their site at http://slowfoodcapecod.org/

Great weekend at Cape Cod Beer Farmers Market and Great North Eastern War

This week we sold knives at the Cape Cod Beer Farmers Market and at the Society for Creative Anachronism event Great North Eastern War with our friend TF Wood Craft.

This is our latest design in friction folders. It is brass and ebony with a piece of Alabama Damascus steel. Every piece of it is hand tooled to shape. It is quite a bit of work, but the end result is worth it.
