While I was browsing the internet, I ran across one of my favorite things....edged weapons. Now, I shave with a straight razor and the one I found is one that I would give my eye teeth for. The handle is ancient mammoth ivory! [ drool drool ] All these are hand made, one of a kind.....I think pieces of art is a apt description. Enough of my rambling, let's see some knives!




Some of these are so beautiful, I don't think I could bring myself to actually use them.

Very organic looking...

Nice to see craftsmanship of this kind still exists.

As to your comment on them being too beautiful to use...up close wet-work can be messy, you have a valid point.

Check out knives of Alaska for true craftsmanship and dare I say it more practical design

Nice Artwork there!!
I like the wrench razor they make.
I would like to try and forge one.

Have you heard of Crusader Forge Blades?
IMO, the best on the market right now.
Pricey, and with a back-order, but well worth it.

Thanks for the share

Holy crap, that Kukri at the bottom is stunning.

I love my boline but I might have to replace it in my herb station if I had that blade there.

Noone has the skill (aparently) as they run way when they see them or myself the cash to pay UNGODLY amounts of money to pay them.

Looks like something handy if they open the bottomless pit.

might BE from it myself...Its to be my Klingon sword so practicality need not apply.

SOOOOO jealous of those who do this by the way.
Bad lungs from war and living in an apartment suck.

I have much appreciation for finely crafted blades.
I prefer to see them as multi-purpose tools first and weapons only if necessary.
Hell, I'd take on a blade with a good rock in a combat situation.
One is good for slashing, the other is good for smashing.

Always used a Gerber MkII as a scout for fighting and a hatchet for prying /chopping.
THEY are making GREAT hatchets these days.

Not bad guys. I like them all... the straight razor especially.


There is a forum of real good blacksmiths that make incredible things for paypal. I cannot post the link... and if I did all your wives would hate me.


Just trust me... and please listen. Buy from blacksmiths first. I even have one in Ukraine I have bought 8 from.



trust me.... if it comes from a factory (maybe other than one called benchmade) you are screwing yourself. Handmade is the way to go in the hands of a professional. The temper is always perfect and its always guaranteed.



cheers

I have my great grandfather's carpenter's hatchet.
It is a great tool. I have wielded it as a threatening weapon once, with good cause, and it was very effective.

These knives truly are amazing,If I owned them I don't think I could ever bring myself to part with them.

Simply stunning. I'm a welder by trade, though that's not what I do anymore. When I was a junior in high school got to move from NH back to NY to work for a real blacksmith.
His hobby when he wasn't making masterful pieces of art was to make knives and swords. To this day he, and my welding mentor who did everything from underwater welding to welding for NASA are the two most talented people I've ever met.
The knives in the OP remind me quite a bit of what he used to make. I'm still in touch with him, I'll see if I can get him to send some pictures over. My first task in training under him was to make a knife. It looked like a piece of rebar compared to what I've seen at the link but it was a very satisfying thing to make. I gave it to my brother for his first knife, I'll have my mom send some pictures.
Thank you so much for sharing David!

Those are great!

My wife bought me a hand made Damascus Folding Knife for my birthday a few years ago. I love the look of Damascus Steel
