7 and 8 inch traditional French chef's knives made from stainless AEB-L in my proprietary design. Heat treated and differentially tempered to about 58rc, Corian scales with stainless pins on the right, pau ferro and purple heart on the left, one with Alowood liner. Corian is impermeable to water, grease and food dirt, and 100% sanitary.
Miniature drop-point hunter with bone scales, leather liner and steel pins. The blade is stainless AEB-L, heat treated and tempered. Comes with a custom sheath.
New to my lineup: paring and turning knives. These are 4 inch, traditional paring knives and professional chef's turning knives but much classier. The blades are stainless AEB-L with Corian grips in various colour combinations.
Reproduction of a typical English made Bowie from the mid- to late 19th century. These were made for export to America and often used a fancy silver table knife handle as a grip, with a large blade and a brass guard. 1080 carbon steel, acid-etched with an antique silver handle and brass guard. Complete with a period-style leather sheath.
Three Little Skinners.
All are forged from 1084 carbon steel, with stabilized maple and birch burl. The bottom two are dyed birch, the top is maple. Complete with custom, hand-made leather sheaths.
Large chef's knife made from AEB-L stainless steel, stainless ferrule and pommel, cocobolo grip. This knife is made in the style of a Bowie, with a "false edge". It is a heavy knife for a large hand, and for tough kitchen jobs. 9 inch blade, 1/8 inch thick at the spine and 2 inches wide.

The handles are made from stabilized, dyed wood burl, with mosaic pins. Complete with custom, hand-made leather sheaths.
Narrower than a typical French chef's knife, the slicer is used for slicing meats, roasts and large items which might get stuck to a wide chef's knife. This one is forged from 1095 high-carbon steel which has been differentially heat treated to produce a "Hamon", the faint line in the steel between hardened and non-hardened sections of the knife. 8 x 1 1/2 inch blade, layered micarta grip, stainless bolster and pins.
Another French Slicer, this one forged from 1084 carbon steel, with Corian handle and steel bolster.

1095 carbon steel blade with a beautiful hamon - the line between hardened and non-hardened steel. This is a technique which works only with certain types of carbon steel and is produced by coating the blade with clay before the heat treating.
