Knives are dangerous and should be treated with the respect given to any tool or weapon which could cause serious bodily injury. If you elect to purchase one of our knives, know your federal, state and local law as regards your new purchase. Carrying or owning certain knives is illegal in some places.
We don't sell to idiots or underage folks - and if we get even a feeling that you fall into one of the two categories, we are going to cancel your order.
We will also make an effort to offer our double-edged knives with an optional "false" back edge, which makes them much more legal - and outside of certain circles ( where they kill murdering, terrorist bastards by the bushel), such double edges are really less likely to be helpful to you anyway. So, to keep you safe - we are willing to "dull" the back edge of your knife.
What you do with the knife is your responsibility. Take safety precautions and understand that using any blade irresponsibly can result in injury to yourselves and others. Be careful and mindful. But know that whether you use it in voodoo ceremonies, cutting open 55-gallon drums or to snip the little heads off of terrorist meat-sacks, we are not responsible for your actions.
For more cautionary talk, see our Important Safety Tips.
For those interested, our knives feature a zero-grind style at between 7.5 and 11 degrees. We do each of these completely by-hand and by-eyeball. There are no jigs at work here. Our grinder
features a ten-inch wheel with a variable speed controller - and we run it at high pressures with a 70 duro contact wheel and 2 inch x 72-inch blaze ceramic belts.
We do not, however, weigh our knives. If you are worried about how much they weigh, you must be preparing to take them into space. Hope you have a good trip.
Our steels have been LaTrobe Dura Tech 20CV, ELMAX, M390, CTS-204P, Z-FINIT Nitrogen Steel, CPM-20CV and a couple in N690 and Cowry X. We are always experimenting - and always looking for new materials and treatments.
Our coatings are also specialized stuff: We use Black-T and Black Diamond DLC. Our blades are sent out to those two companies to accomplish that work, depending on the requirements of the project.
We do all our own firing and cryo work. Everything by-hand and by-heart.
FOR KNIFE BUILDS...
(yep. We are that busy)
Troops come first.
