Some #putabirdonit.
We #putabisononit.

(And yes, that was the best we could do. We’re knifemakers folks. God only gives so many talents. If you want SNL quality knife comedy, go check out @federknives or his podcast: @knifetalkpodcast. Geoff, Mareko and Craig are way funnier than us and each makes a mean knife.)

Fun fact, did you know the Bison is North America’s largest land mammal? Male bulls can weigh as much as 2,000 lbs…that’s more than half your crappy 93’ Ford Taurus!

This is another one headed to @the_forge_dubai . If you are interested in purchasing this one you can contact him directly.

In other news we are working really hard over here to get some rad knives made for the holidays. Stay tuned…more to come!

This is Marino. He’s Italian…sort of. He’s actually from Jersey but it’s close enough and he loves his momma.

Marino is of the sea. He’s been around the pier a few times if you know what I mean. Seen some things. Hard things. Spent a little time in the cage before getting back out on the water.

He’s done with all that now. Just wants to smoke his pipe in peace and catch a few episodes of Deadliest Catch every once in a while.

He’s a little salty but a hard worker. Very loyal. He’s looking for a home. Hope you can help.

We made this one with Veteran’s Day in mind.

We have a lot to work through in this country but Steve and I are so incredibly proud to be Americans. We realize that the freedoms we have today are in no small part due to the sacrifices made by our veterans.

The engraving on this one is taken from the Bennington flag which was a US revolutionary flag, made in honor of the Battle of Bennington. The battle was considerd a turning point in the American revolution and it is unique among the various versions of flags our country has had over the years. Central to the flag is a large ‘76’ in the canton which is a reference to the year the Declaration of Independence was signed. There are 13 stars, representing the 13 original colonies that rebelled against the British.

With respect, honor and gratitude…Thank You Veterans.

Another one we made for @the_forge_dubai. (Please contact him directly if you are interested in any in this batch.)

7.5 Inch kiritsuke profile with AEB-L stainless steel. Handle is a combination of white, gray and black G10 separated by stripes of stabilized koa wood. We also added copper and black G10 liners on this one.

Feels nice and hefty in hand which is what we personally like but then we also don’t have to work a shift on the line for 8 hours at a time. Hopefully it will be the right fit for someone.
