Small Knives

My Work

Fire-tool Stand – Detail

Detail of a stand for fireplace tools, showing complexity of finials.

Surt’s Horn

An elaborate drinking horn, leaning toward Jelling motifs.

Walnut Chest

Small dovetailed walnut chest, with forged iron hardware from extant 18thc New England examples.

Bowie Knife

An even bigger knife – 15” overall. Differentially-quenched 5160 blade, hafted with antler, nickel-silver and maple then elaborately file-worked. Balance is exceptional.

Lacey Cross Monument

A large, contemporary Celtic Cross for a family memorial.

Oak Leaf Fireplace Doors

Copper and steel fireplace doors, to match and complete a 1920s marble fireplace. Some very simple repousse, modern and traditional forms.

Birch-leaf Fireplace Doors

Hand-forged in their entirety, from leaves to rivets.

Hammer-Poll Patriot Tomahawk

A hammer poll version of a famous movie tomahawk. Client request. Steel.

Colonial Fire Tongs

From a set of 18th c fireplace tools. Wrought with precision.

Small Knives

Three small hunting knives, all 5160. From top, hafts are antler/cedar burl, Koa/Maple/Brass and Walnut with copper pins.

Rococo Pipe Tomahawk

Pipe tomahawk with light engraving and pewter accents.

Katana

Entirely hand-forged and polished – an exercise in patience. 11,000 layers of 1090/1040 steel kobuse-welded around a soft-iron core. Dimensions taken from a Kamakura-period Bizen. Fitted with a quilted-maple saya to reflect my western sensibilites.
