When you inquire about having a knife custom made or having embellishment work done I base my quotes on the difficulty of the job and the materials that will be used. I do not charge a premium on materials from my suppliers.  I will begin work as soon as possible. After the job is complete I will contact you and inform you that the knife is finished, and then you can send the remainder of the payment. I welcome full payment up front so I can ship the knife immediately after it is finished without hesitation. I only accept payment by postal money order, or cash. The price I quote you will include materials, labor, and return shipping by the same method used to ship it to me. I prefer not to work on moden liner locks, frame locks, or other "tacticals".


I work in most any handle material you want, bone, wood, stag, horn, ivory, synthetics, reconstituted stones, micartas, ect. I do NOT work with G10, or Mother of pearl.

What I do:

  • restore, professionally clean and repair knives both fixed and folding
  • filework backsprings,liners and occasionally blades
  • rehandle fixed and folding knives in a wide variety of natural and manmade materials such as reconstituted stone, wood, horn, ivory, micarta, jeancarta, abalone,  ECT
  • reinstall shield in the new handles.
  • Full custom one of a kind rehandles on factory produced knives with designs and themes
  • make fixed blade knives to your specs on my approval
  • alter existing models to fit your needs
  • special order handle material if I do not have it in stock
  • brush, hand rub, or mirror polish blades on request
  • gun blue blades on request.

What I do Not Do:

  • re-pin reconstituted stone
  • sell custom fixed blades as kits or otherwise unfinished
  • make knives from stainless steel
  • re pin scales on lockblades (buck 110, buck 112, schrade lb7 schrade lb8 ect) unless requested
  • use G10 or G11 handle material
  • use mother of pearl (I am allerigc to the dust)
  • sandblast or bead blast any of my blades.
