CAMP AND FIELD KNIVES
Some examples of previously sold knives
GENTLEMAN'S VEST BOWIE
This gentleman's vest bowie features a multibar twist damascus blade, stainless steel double-lugged guard, bronze spacer, and stabilized ancient bog oak handle.
A classy, beautiful, and highly capable accessory for the sharp-dressed man.
A knife like this is not typically carried indoors.
The blade is forged and selectively hardened W2 high carbon steel, polished and etched to reveal the hamon. A double-lugged stainless steel guard, internally secured sambar stag handle, and contoured stainless steel buttcap complete the hilt.
A simple but rugged hand-stitched leather sheath keeps this one snug and secure while out and about.
This mountain-man bowie has a big, broad damascus blade forged out of 80CrV2, O1, and 75Ni8 steels. The cutting edge measures over 10 inches in length and the knife overall measures some 15 inches.
A forged titanium S-guard, damascus spacer, and Australian ringed gidgee handle offer a comfortable and secure grip through all kinds of heavy cutting and chopping tasks. This is a big knife that won't shy away from any challenge.
When you're deep in the mountain wilderness and don't know what you might encounter next, you'll feel a lot more confident with a knife like this at your side.
IRONWOOD FIELD KNIFE
Here is a classic field knife; something you might like to carry when you're far away from civilization. A strong, capable, and versatile tool that can be called upon for anything from food prep to defense against monsters and villains.
The 7" (180mm) long blade is made from 80CrV2 carbon steel with the raw forge-finish left on the flats. The flat-ground bevels from a 3/16" (5mm) blade thickness form a light but robust cutting tool that can slice and chop with ease.
The guard is stainless steel accented with a heat-colored titanium spacer. The handle is sculpted from a block of desert ironwood contoured to fit comfortably in the hand.
This knife is accompanied by a heavy-duty, hand-stitched leather sheath to be worn securely on a belt.
The blade on this knife is damascus steel forged out of three distinct high carbon tool steels. The S-shaped guard, also forged damascus, protects the hand and fingers from whatever might get in the way.
The handle is shaped from a beautiful piece of Australian ringed gidgee, set off with a titanium spacer and bedded to the tang with high-grade epoxy and a carbon fiber pin.
A small Brotzeit Messer, perfect for an afternoon hike and picnic on the hillside.
A forged high carbon steel blade, damascus guard, and African blackwood handle ensure peak performance, lasting beauty, and comfort in the hand.
Shown with accompanying leather belt-sheath.
BRUT DE FORGE FIELD KNIVES
These brut-de-forge field knives feature blades of 80CrV2 steel. The knife on the left has a sculpted, double-lugged stainless steel guard and a black G-10 handle with through-tang construction, while the knife on the right has a stainless steel plate guard, textured titanium spacer, and roasted and stabilized ash handle.
These knives are an excellent choice for overnight excursions into the field. Large enough for heavy tasks but light enough not to slow you down on your mission.
FIELD KNIVES WITH THEIR SHEATHS
When carrying a knife into the field you want to keep it secure, safe, and close by for ready access. These hand-stitched leather sheaths are well-suited for belt carry, but can also be strapped to a vest or backback.
Every camp and field knife I make is offered with a custom-fit sheath similar to these, and I welcome the input of clients to design a carry system specific to their needs.
GENTLEMAN'S HUNTING KNIFE
This gentleman's hunting knife features a forged high carbon steel blade, damascus guard, and an Australian ringed gidgee handle. The blade is hand-polished to a 600 grit satin finish, and the wood handle is contoured and sanded to 1200 grit.
Compact personal carry knife made to comply with a customer's hometown legal blade-length restriction of three inches. Sculpted Australian ringed gidgee handle with a blued damascus guard and glass-breaker pmmel-nut.
O.G. STAG FIGHTER
The slender blade and long clip make this knife very light and fast in the hand. A stainless steel guard with black G10 and stainless steel spacers complement a beautifully textured sambar stag carver handle. The stainless steel buttcap was filed and sanded to match the contours of the stag.
FIELD / FIGHTER
This is a field knife with a bit of attitude. The 7" (180mm) long blade is forged and fullered 80CrV2 steel, 1/4" (6,5mm) thick at the spine. Its deep fuller, long clip and fine point make the blade a faster, more aggressive version than its cousins in the field.
The guard on this one is forged low-layer damascus, accented with a coined-edge bronze spacer. The handle is sculpted from a block of desert ironwood contoured to fit comfortably in the hand.
This knife also came with a heavy-duty, hand-stitched leather sheath (not pictured) to be worn securely on a belt.

FULL-TANG FIELD KNIFE

A hand-stitched leather sheath keeps this one close.
