Custom Commissions Also Available!

If you have a special idea for a blade in mind, feel free to send me an email and I would be more than happy to discuss the possibility of a custom blade specially designed for you. I am open to many ideas. I am more than glad to work with clients to come up with the best design possible to fit their needs. However, depending on my workload, I may not be able to accept new commissions during certain times of the year, and accepted commissions may take some time to complete. I also reserve th eright to turn down any comission at my discretion. This will be decided on an individual basis, per client, per piece. As will pricing. Please drop me a message to find out more or if you have a special piece in mind!

An example of a custom blade commission:

A commission begins when a customer comes to me with a particular blade idea or need in mind. I work with the customer to develop a rough design of the desired blade.

 

Material considerations are taken into account and a conceptual rendering is developed.

After all of the final decisions are made about the blade, work on the blade begins.

 Rough forged                                                                   Profile ground

 

Bevels roughed in.                                                           Rough grind finished.

 

Blade in initial finishing sanding and polish.                         Handle fitting and rough shaping
