Been working to get more knives finished, one has already sold, the Fortis with the Orange handle all the others need sheathing then will most likely be going on sale.
Three knives are Elmax HRC60, full flat grinds off the back of the spine, with a Scotchbrite finish on the grinds and a the flats hand sanded to 600 grit satin. Note the tapered tang on the orange knife.

Another Fortis with fully stabilised field Maple which I felled several years ago. This knife also has a tapered tang which makes the knife lighter and balanced.

This knife is a Secare made from Marcus Balbach of Germany stainless Damascus steel, an expensive steel to say the least.

The steel pattern is' small roses'. The pattern only appears in the steel after it has been hand sanded after grinding and then left in Hydrochloric acid for several hours. The blade was then hand sanded again and a 17.5 degree micro bevel added to the full flat.
The scales are fully stabilised burl which has then been cast in resin with a blue tint and cast in a pressure pot, I do all this work myself, its labour intensive but that way I know the history of the wood.

If you look closely you can see a total fluke which appeared in the manufacture of the steel billet...there is a the shape of a deer head in the steel.

This is a Secare and Curva set, once again in Elmax but with black g10 scales with a red liner added. This set is a commission and wont be for sale, the set still needs a sheath making.

Hi Peter. Very nice. Could you provide me with a price. I'm considering a handmade knife this year. These look very good.

Beautiful! How come we all see these as things to be cherished and admired and others outside of our fraternity see them as dangerous and lethal. For me I see the beauty in the craftsmanship and the materials, and I see a knife as something to be respected, and I suppose for others they see what’s in the own hearts and minds..
Keep sharing Peter.

I forgot to say the Burl is False Acacia from a tree here in Dorset, a section of which I dried outside for sometime then cooked in a PID controlled oven for 24 hrs min in order to remove all moisture before it was cut ready for the stabilising / casting process.
