Welcome to my knife shop😀 You will find new items here for sale most every week. I have found I am more productive and push myself further producing work to sell here on my website. Therefore I no longer take any kind of custom order or reserve items for people. I find it better to concentrate on making the very best quality work and be able to offer more items for sale. These days I use Instagram to show my working process, and I also use Instagram to give notifications of new stock, and to Auction one off items. I intend to add a fresh Mailing list for a simple notification of when new knives come in stock for those who do not use Instagram, which I will add here shortly.
