It’s that time again!

New knives are available!

Here are close-up shots of some of these pieces!

Aged Blade Finish, Lucas Forge Knives, Custom Knives

It’s hard to beat an aged finish that’s full of character! This one belongs to the Elk River Hunter with a gorgeous ironwood handle.

Take one look at the stabilized maple burl handle on this kitchen knife from Lucas Forge and you know it’s something special! So: a close-up shot is in order. Although the photo can’t do it quite justice, you can see a little more of this fabulous piece…the swirls and burls, small filled pockets, the rich color. It’s elegant.

Here is a view of the other side of this handle.

And while we’re on “other side” pictures, here is a photo of the opposite side of the sweet ironwood-handle Frontier Kephart. Pure class.

It’s exciting to bring you a lineup of four available knives!

Custom Knives, Trekker Sheath, Handmade Leather Knife Sheath

When you see a handmade Trekker sheath, you know there’s something special inside. This one is no exception! Inside this rust-colored edition of Ike’s creative handiwork is a unqiue hunter style knife with a coffeebag handle!

And a parting view from the top, showing the natural form of the antler. This creates a comfortable “cradle” in the hand.

Super Details!

Here we have some detail pictures of this week’s available knives!

Custom Knives, Lucas Forge

First off, here’s a shot of the cool X-jimping that belongs to the curly maple Powder River!

Small Knives, Belt Knives, Lucas Forge Knives, Custom Handmade Knives

Next up, there’s the Lookout. This special-edition knife features an amazing sheath set-up and these next pictures will show a little more about it. Check it out!

Leather Sheath

This customized belt loop can be snapped off and the whole sheath used as a neck sheath. Just thread a thong or cord of your choice through the brass D-ring and it’s ready for the ride.

A pause to take a look at the thimping pattern along the spine!

Drop-Point in Detail

Hello everyone! Up for today, we have detail pictures of a snazzy drop-point knife that is on the Available Now page currently!

It’s a beauty of a hammer-forged original by Lucas Forge!

Drop Point Knife, Hand Forged Knife, Custom Knives, Hunting Knife, Custom Hunting Knife, Knifemakers, Lucas Forge, Skinning Knives

From the bird’s-eye view here, we can see some of the overall features. A honey-hued curly maple handle with brass accents, the hammer marks, aged finish…that kind of thing…

Drop Point Blae, Custom Knives, Forged Knives

We will now zoom up a bit to get a better view of the blade. From here it becomes a little more obvious that something’s going on with the spine.

File work, Custom Knives, Lucas Forge

Oh boy! Customized filework! This not only adds to the design of the knife, it also gives more grip when the knife’s in use! But maybe there’s even more than meets the eye, so we’ll go at it from another angle…

Custom Knife, Lucas Forge, Lucas Knives, Alabama Knifemaker

Right along the grip-section of this spine, a unique contour has been carefully added so that there is a subtle area for the user’s thumb to settle. This may particularly be of use when the knife is needed for a very controlled cutting task, or because it’s just plain comfortable!

And we’ll finish up this tour with a picture of the other side of this unique, handcrafted knife.

Hope you’re having a wonderful day!

Here’s a shot of the large Jaguar-type knife in the sheath. This is a sweet setup, folks.

This is the available Powder River’s sheath, which has some cool creases across the width of the sheath, making a rugged look.

An attempted close-up shot of the walnut-stained curly maple handle on that Frontier Trapper. It’s hard to get a photo that really shows this effect. It’s amazing!

A blade close-up too, just for fun. That curved blade and sharp tip means detailed cutting work.
