  • What steel do you use?
    I use many different types of steel depending on the intended use of the blade. 1084, 1095, 15n20, 52100, 5160. I use some recycled masterials like old files, railroad spikes, leaf springs and bush hog blades.

  • Why do you force a patina or use coffee etching?
    On a carbon steel blade, there is special care to prevent it from rusting. By forcing a patina or etching in coffee, it protects the blade from the initial rusting. With continued use and care the patina will develop deeper and protect your blade naturally. Please watch following video on the proper Care of Carbon Steel Knives by Walter Sorrells CLICK HERE
