The Ranchero, a knife that is available today on Lucas Forge, gets a spotlight all its own!
A tough O-1 high carbon blade
Aged blade finish
Sporty curly maple handle
Thumb jimping for extra grip
A very manageable size for everyday use (6 inches overall!)
And a super-cool sheath completes the package!
Detail shot of the thumb jimping…
This sheath, which has been handmade by Ike right here in Alabama, is a horizontal snap-over sheath. With such a comfortable sheath, the Ranchero can securely ride, nice and easy, within reach for any number of cutting tasks!
Thank you so much for visiting the Lucas Forge blog! Please watch for upcoming posts!
New knives are available!
Here are close-up shots of some of these pieces!
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.
Thank you so much for looking! Hope you have a wonderful day!

It’s exciting to bring you a lineup of four available knives!
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!
Here’s a closeup shot of the pocket for the sharpening stone which comes toting along with this knife and sheath combination! All hand stitched.
Then, we finish up this post with a quick shot of the spine on that amazing Scandi grind field knife. Ironwood handle with G-10 liners…it’s pretty sweet.
Thanks for looking!
It’s exciting to get to share detail pictures for the two first Lucas Forge knives with Damascus blades, offered today on the website!!
This one has an elk antler handle.
Here we have a close-up of the ripple pattern found in this piece of unique Damascus steel!
Then one of the other side!
And a parting view from the top, showing the natural form of the antler. This creates a comfortable “cradle” in the hand.
This nifty little Trapper is super striking!
Here’s a close-up of this side!
A photo of the other side…
…and another one because the photographer was enjoying this!
As you can see, this handle goes amazingly with the blade’s character!

Thanks for visiting!
Here we have some detail pictures of this week’s available knives!
First off, here’s a shot of the cool X-jimping that belongs to the curly maple Powder River!
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!
Here we have a dangler style snap-over sheath with a firesteel packing right along!
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!
A view of the back of the sheath…
And a view of this deluxe package on the belt!
Last, but most certainly not least, here is a close-up of the jimping on the Stubby Kephart with the beautiful osage orange handle.
Thank you for joining the tour!
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!
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…
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.
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…
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!
Knives are available!
This lineup holds something new, which I am pleased to share detail photos of…
What you see here is a blade featuring the hammer-forged textured finish, new from Lucas Forge! Two of the knives that are available in this batch have this new finish.
These two knives are made with 52100 high carbon steel.
This textured finish adds a very traditional touch.
Thank you for visiting the Lucas Forge blog! Hope you have a great day!
P.S. If you would especially like to see detail photos of any other custom features offered on this website, please leave a comment about it…and we’ll see what we can do!
New knives are on the page! Thought I’d post a few detail photos:
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.
Thank you for visiting the blog! Hope you have a great day!
There are new knives available on the website! Some of these cutting tools have some pretty amazing details and we’d like to think that these design elements make the tool itself even more enjoyable to use. Check these out!
First off, is a close-up of the curly maple handle and mosaic pin on a Frontier knife.
Next, we have a series of detail pictures regarding this cool, very unique Scandinavian style knife.
The totally jute-wrapped handle can be seen from above here.
And here’s a side view close-up, too!
This deluxe handle belongs to a knife that could be termed an Elk River Hunter “Lightweight.” A black micarta handle with a thin ironwood overlay and plenty of pins provide accent.
You can see a little more about the overlay here…
This field knife’s handle has an amazing stabilized walnut handle with lots of character!
Red liners, too!
This Belt Buddy has laminate oak liners!
That’s all for now!
Thank you for visiting the Lucas Forge blog. We hope you’ll have a wonderful day and check back often!
Greetings! It’s exciting to offer such a lineup on the Available Now page!
Included in the available knives is this little Belt Buddy with a cool green micarta handle.
One unique part of this knife is the laminate walnut liner in the handle. It’s shown below in detail!
Thank you so much for visiting the Lucas Forge blog! Have a wonderful day!
