Quality Custom-Knives, Tomahawks and Trade Axes - Hand-Forged Period Reproductions.

As a full time bladesmith, I specialize in hand forged reproductions of period custom-knives, tomahawks and trade axes that were used in the 1700-1840 period.

My period custom knives and tomahawks look like they were made centuries ago because they are hand forged in the traditional way with a hammer and anvil. And of course, one at a time. All of my custom knives, tomahawks and trade axes were hand forged in my shop.

Occasionally, I forged "modern" custom hunting knives and bowies, plus traditional woodworking hand tools such as broad axes, froes, hand adze and chisels.

Most of my custom-knives, tomahawks and axes are one-of-a-kind pieces. And even special orders of two of the same design, no two will be exactly the same. Each piece will be unique. All are functional working pieces and are differentially heat treated.

Whether your interest is in rendezvous, re-enactments, historical trekking, or if you want a great knife for hunting, fishing and camping, I am confident that you will find it in my website.
