  1. This knife was hand forged using 1095 high carbon steel. The overall length is 9 inches. The ferrule and seppa are coin silver. The handle is Sonoran Desert Ironwood.
  2. This knife would be only my fourth attempt at making a knife! I have spent much time learning new tricks and methods since my last knifemaking adventure, and due to some recent inspiration, I had decided to make this knife: 1080 Steel, a stacked leather handle, hand-cut brass guard, and a brass butt-cap(attached by peening the tang). This time, to attach the guard, i soldered it on, so it would most certainly stay secure, and polished the blade to a mirror finish. Also, I finished, sanded, and waxed the leather handle to a moderate shine, and shaped it to be secure but comfortable in the hand. Leather is one hard material to shape from my experience. In addition, i differentially tempered it, and lightly etched it, but the hamon line is only very slightly visible due to the polishing process... my lesson learned with this knife however, was to let the refractory cement cure onto the knife where i want the hamon line, or else it may get scratched off by coal in the forge... What kind of feedback can you guys offer?

    Apples to Apples

    336 Layer, Random pattern Damascus Hunter for Eddie Farms in Grandview WA Heat colored fittings, with Apple themed engraving on both collar, and buttplate.
  5. This is my newest knife. I forged it out on one of the days here that wasn’t 35 degrees. I listened to the advice here on my last knife. I took this one through the grits, 60 120 220 400. This one is raindrop pattern 1080 and 15n20. I etched in vinegar again for 3 hours. I was also super happy with the pin holes this time. The last knife I did I had to hot punch the holes in because my drill couldn’t make a dent in the steel. So I invested in a high roc tungsten carbide bit and it went through the handle like it was nothing. Still need to put an edge on it and the handle. I will post more pics when that step is done. The only thing I'm not happy with is the point. I was going for another chef’s knife with this one but the more I worked on it the more I realised it was looking more like a camp knife or hunting knife. So yea not too happy about that.

    Damascus and Ivory

    5 1/4" Damascus Hunter. 210 layer Damascus with fossilized walrus ivory, and Bog Oak. Damascus fittings. This was built as a take down knife.
  7. I've been talking to some of you about a skinning knife I'll be making with a checkered handle. It's part of a set themed around some of the great American explorers. The first knife in the set, "The Clark," is a pretty straight forward drop-point hunter. Here's the WIP.... and the obligatory injury photo. More to come tomorrow.
  8. Completed February 25, 2014 This fancy little Utility Hunter is going to a client in Homer Alaska. This fella will be put to hard use once the snow melts off soon. Blade : 5 1/2" 5160 Guard : Heat colored 304 Stainless, also collar. Handle : Stabilized Birdseye Maple O.A.L. 10 1/2"

    Gentlemans Hunter

    Gentleman's Hunter by David Roeder. This is my first Journeyman Smith knife that I made after passing my testing. 4 1/4" 5160 blade, 416 Stainless guard, Stabilized exhibition grade Birdseye Maple handle. Heat colored file worked collar.
  10. 5 1/8" Hand Forged 5160 Blade. Stainless guard, Amboina burl handle. This was made for a local client by his wife after he asked her if he could have one made. She shot down the idea, then contacted me to have it made. She is buying it for him for Christmas. Pretty sneaky !
  11. This is a recent piece for a international client. This knife was made and sent to a client in N.E. Ireland. The blade is 5160, and the handle material is stabilized Bog Oak. The client and I using Skype were able to talk face to face so to speak, and he was able to watch the entire making of his knife. What a wonderful bit of technology when two people from so far away can talk face to face.
  12. 275 Layer random pattern Damascus. L-6 & 15n20 Cocobolo handle
  13. Finished on 5-5-2013 This is a Hunters set that I made. Blades are 3 1/2" long, both Skinner & Caping knife style. Leather carry case holds both blades and also a diamond sharpening stone.
