    Why Just Own A Knife When You Can Own A Piece Of Art?

    My name is Richard Von Hagen Palmer, functional artist and the maker of Von Hagen Knives. I love to make knives and almost every knife I make is for sale. Each original, one of a kind Von Hagen Knife is handmade by me. For me, part of the thrill of being a functional artist is sketching out my ideas on paper and then watching them come to life by my hands and in front of my eyes. Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. I hope you like what you see.

    I call this style THE SHARK'S TOOTH. The idea of The Shark's Tooth is to provide a fixed blade pocket knife. Many states have passed laws where it is illegal to carry a concealed knife that has a blade longer than three (3) inches. This blade is 2 7/8". The entire knife is a mere 6 1/4". With this knife, you have the convenience of a fixed blade in a pocket knife size.

    Each original, one of a kind Von Hagen Knife is handmade by me. This SHARK TOOTH STYLE BLADE is made of 3/32" 01 TOOL STEEL bar stock. The blade has been Rockwell Hardness Tested. Each Von Hagen Knife has been tempered and bench tested to assure the perfect hardness. The FULL TANG knife has a FULL GRIND BLADE. The RED VULCANIZED SPACER adds a nice highlight to the beautiful KOA HANDLE. This is one SHARP knife!!

    I shop around for handle material. Most of what I buy comes in blocks or slabs, which I buy raw, unstabilized and mostly wet. I cut the scales, stabilize them and then harden them in a zero atmosphere setting. This entire process may take up to a year and a half. It may seem like a lot of work and a lot of waiting but this allows me to use woods that you just can't buy from the knife scale sellers.

    Sorry for not having any buttons, gadgets or springs that open the knife for you. This Von Hagen Pocket Knife is all about hard work and years of good service!

    Thanks for looking,

    Nice ! Like the design on the blade, especially on the spine.
    That Koa looks like it has plenty of depth.
    Good job.
