27 years in Custom Knife Making
Thanks for visiting my site. Most of my knives are on a custom order basis, if you see something you like just give me a call and we can talk about the various options available for each knife, and build it to suit your taste. The majority of my knives are automatics, but every knife shown except the OTF's, have a "Mini" Auto version, as well as a manual version.
16 MAY 2018
Tritons are once again available.
THE TRITON II
SS Triton II #1
416 Stainless steel frames, 2-tone satin and glass bead finish. Engraved and fluted by maker
Doug Ponzio Turkish Twist Damascus blade. 2 mm. Sapphire in 24k gold plated button on a Heat colored slide
Marked #1 on the side. SOLD
"SOLAR SYSTEM" Edition
Update May 25 2015
The new mechanism of the Triton will be incorporated into the Space knives that have not been completed.
I am also working on some limited edition D/A OTF's with the theme of our Solar System. These will all be one of a kind relative to materials and limited to 9, one for each planet. (I know, I know, Pluto is no longer a planet, but it was when I went to school). I believe this is the largest D/A OTF ever made and has a whole new adjustable mechanism. Lock-up is comparable to that of a fixed blade. This knife is around 13" overall and similar in shape to the art daggers of old. Prices for the 9 "Space" Knives will be around $8900. This is a ball park figure, as with a knife this large, a lot depends on the inlay materials and the amount of engraving. Just drop me a line or give me a call if you would like more information. Below is the prototype of the series.
2 of these in the series will be all Turkish twist Damascus. Please call or write for availability.

I use primarily Damascus from Jerry Rados, Doug Ponzio, and my own Damascus. For stainless I use ATS-34 and 154CM. If you have a favorite forger or prefer a different steel just let me know. I do all the engraving shown, except for a few knives and they are listed with the engravers name.
