I Forge Iron

First time for my work in print!


Recommended Posts

If y'all haven't seen it yet, one of my knives was tested out and reviewed by Kim Breed in the November 2013 issue of Blade Magazine, on page 28.  Magazines being the weird critters they are, the November issue is on the shelves right now in August.  :)


Kim tested out one of my Benghazi Warfighters with a short, fully sharpened double edge.  He refers to it as a Neo-Tribal Utility in the article, which is also accurately descriptive.  He put it through a pretty good workout and I'm pleased with how the knife did.  I particularly liked that he commented a couple of times about the comfort of the handle, as that's something that's important to me.


He put the blade through a thorough series of real world tests and it did well.  The number of rope cuts was a little low, but given that this is a knife built and intended to balance on the tougher side of things to withstand military usage and that bringing the edge back to shaving sharp is quick to do, I am overall happy with the performance.  Kim didn't hold back with it and the knife served well.


This is actually the second time that my work showed up in Blade, but the previous time was a letter to the editor where I thanked them for their article on the Bowies at the Alamo as the picture of the Caiaphus Ham Bowie knife in the article helped me build a commissioned replica I was working on at the time.  I included a picture of my version that they published, but this was the first time that someone else's thoughts on my knives had seen print.


I believe there are some more articles forthcoming in other magazines, but not sure when.
