    This one is funny in that it is part of the continuing education and evolution of knifemaking for me. In the process of coming up with a pattern for a knife, I will normally sketch it out on paper and then transfer it onto a cardboard so as to have a better idea of how it will feel in the hand. In the past, I've even gone so far as to render it in wood. I digress, this knife started out as some dirk. I had already gone so far as to heat treat and grind the ...

    I've always liked the clean lines and utility of the various iterations of the Kephart pattern knives I have seen and handled and this was my attempt at it. Forgive the pic. This one has a 4.75" blade, 9" oal in O1 and brown canvas micarta. This one has a more acute point than what would probably encountered on a more faithful rendition.

Comes with OD green kydex sheath of my design. If interested PM me or email me at Visit my business Facebook page: Beach Cities Ironworks. ...

  5. New Member and How I feel.

    After a three year lay off started back making knives. I sold/gave away so many of my tools in the move it's going to take me longer than I thought to really get going. Funny feeling turning 50 this year. Time is running out or at least I feel like it is. I don't want to be a full time knife maker but I wouldn't mind making just a few in the time I have left that would stay long after I'm gone. Weapon making can make you almost immortal I that kind of a comfort.
