Welcome to Don's Knives gallery of unique personalized carbon steel hand-forged cutting blades. From rail-road spike knives to unique Rasps made with a unique birds-eye grip my knives are fashioned with the human hand in mind. How easily a knife slices is based on how the blade is tempered and the edge that the Bladesmith tempers into the knife and my blade are tempered "carbon sharp". I take advantage of every benefit that the carbon steel used in the blade allows me without weakening the blade. If you have never used a tempered blade then you are in for a treat. The ease of the slice will make you think about the knife you currently slice with.

All knives on this page have a $6.00 Shipping 
and Handling charge applied to the total.

Here is one of my one-of-a-kind knives, 'The Final Point', a very uniquely designed knife which would be quite effective in delivering a 'final point', pun intended! ;) The blade was made from an old circular saw mill blade, good high carbon steel, normalized three times in the tempering process, it has a black paper micarta handle with red liners and fancy filing on the top and bottom, and it comes with a sturdy hand-made belt sheath of vegetable tanned leather, dyed black with yellow-dyed stingray skin inlay to really set off the black handle! It measures 8 5'8" long overall with a straight, razor sharp 4" blade edge, a formidable little sticker! I very rarely make the same knife twice, I was playing with design when I made this one, I daresay I'll never make another exactly like it so now is some collector's chance to own a true one-of-a-kind!

Item#-
Karambit #4 -This piece sports a beautiful California buckeye burl handle. I designed the back of the blade with two pointed 'spikes' to concentrate the impact of the overhand flip-strike into one of two sharp striking points- a medium strength overhand flip-strike will punch a nice hole in a hardwood board, would be perfect for a temple/pressure point strike. I also put a sharp edge on top of the blade for a backhand cut. Measures 7" long, inside blade edge 2 7/8", top edge 2 1/8" long.
