Flint Striker Knives
These little guys are forged from old Nicholson "Black Diamond" files (which are made from a proprietary alloy that is a good bit "better" than 1095..which is a GREAT steel by the way) that I have otherwise worn out beyond use..These are hand forged and very sharp. You can strike a spark with flint or chert on either the blade spine..or... on the grip area as I put in a "strike pad" on the back of the grip just for that purpose. These do NOT come with a sheath.
The below blades are currently in stock and ready to go!!

These are something neat and a bit unusual..these rings are hand made from actual coinage. We can use US, Mexican, Canadian, British..Australian, Old German....just abut any solid Ag or Cu based coin of the appropriate size for just about any given ring size from 5 up to 19 1/2.
These rings are made so you can "read" both sides..inside and out and can be made to show either the Obverse ("Heads) or the Reverse ("Tails") on the outside, per your request.
We can us just about any coin from any country that is made of the "right" materials. We can do any year that is available(some of the rarer "collector" coins will have an impact on the price)
We can use foreign coinage as well, if we can get them, per request.
Currently we have a selection of sizes in US Quarters, Kennedy halves as well as the Sacajawea Dollar and Presidential Dollar coins. We can also use Eisenhower , Morgan, and Peace Dollar coins.
So if you are looking for something out of the ordinary and would like to obtain one of these..please give us a call.. We try to keep a good selection of sizes and coins in stock. If we have to make one up and we have the coin..we can have it made usually the same day we get the request.
Post 1964 coin rings for US Coinage are priced at $20.00 each.
Rail Road Spike Knives:

These are what they say...hand forged out of rail road spikes. Now I do mine a bit different than other makers..I forge out the entire spike which makes for a better handling and a more "solid" feeling blade. Plus these are heat treated using my own proprietary heat treating technique that results in a edge that will actually cut. So these are no longer just a "novelty item" these are 100% functional blades. While not a good a "cutter" as 1095 is, these still can and do cut very well. Styles, shapes and sizes vary and I usually have a 1/2 dzoen of these (or more) on hand at any given time. Please see below for what is currently listed.

Rail Road Spike Knives in stock
The following knives are hand forged from HC marked RR spikes and are currently available...These are VERY sharp and I have found a way to heat treat them to the pint where they can take and keep a decent edge..Still these are not the same as a good high carbon steel but they are tougher than Hell and they do cut very well...None of the rail road spike knives some with a sheath.. BEWARE..again I will say..these are SHARP..
These blades give folks a chance to get a hand forged knife from a well known, "World Class" Bladesmith at very attractive prices..
PLEASE NOTE: The lengths given are BLADE LENGTHS only...Not the overall length./ All blades are stamped with the 8R chop mark
All RR spike knives are at the Southern California Renaissance Pleasure Fair in Irwindale, CA.
