Forging is the art of shaping metal using localized compressive forces. I use a blacksmithing hammer and manpower to mold the steel into the shape of a blade. When I hammer forge, I’m not limited to the width of the stock and there is less waste during the original shaping process. I then use a stock removal technique to form the knife blade angle on my hand made knives.
I intentionally prefer to leave these hammer marks into the blade so that the owner can see a sense of uniqueness and craftsmanship involved in its creation.
However all of my hand forged, custom made knives can be designed without these marks at the request of the buyer. Because of the hand forged process every custom blade is an artisanal creation custom hammered out a hot bar of steel then heat treated to produce a handmade knife of superior quality and character.
