Hi guys
Figured this the best spot for this cause I'll probly be in the knife area the most.
I am Jim Wade, I have been a tool maker for 15 years and a part time knife maker for about 6 years now. I started to forge knives about a year and a half go or so and haven't looked back, I had to take about six months off of knifemaking but am back at it, I have a gas forge and a basic shop set up that I let a buddy borrow to help get him started while I wasn't using it so I thew together a quick charcaol forge and started to hammer, lately my knives have taken a real earthy almost neotribal look to them, Ill post some pics of new work as I get it done.

I am an avid outdoorsman , I hunt, fish, and practice many primitive living/woodsman skills , I also am the father of three and the husband of one.

I am looking forward to learning and sharing around here,
here are some pics of my work from about six month ago.

All leather work was done by Paul Savage and the kydex is from On/scene Tactical
