There's a pair of brothers who frequent our local Farmers Market and come from Nottingham NH. They make custom knives, cutting boards and other wooden products.

I stopped by their tent this morning and saw the real craftsmanship of their knives up close and personal and this beautiful Damascus Boning Knife followed me home. Here are the specs:
Hand Forged Colin MacCrea 15n20 blade with hamon line
Bloodwood Saya for blade protection
Handle: Desert Ironwood
Pins: Copper Mosaic 1/4 inch
Spacer Material: white g10
Bolster: Hand Poured pewter

Lol, I use an iPad Pro most of the time and am sure if I turned my beast on which has a 37" screen the knife would be well over 2' but it's less tha 4" long on the iPad Pro's screen but I can vouch for the dimensions I gave Ozark Wizard since that's the lengths of what is in the knife drawer. Wink

Here is some of the other members that of the fold. My custom Chefs knife was made by west coast Bladesmith Michael Rader he was chosen as Bladesmith of the year when I had received it, fantastic and extremely functional Damascus Blade. A new custom knife for the fold 36116707871_629495d9ac_z_d

Then I had a French style knife made by knife maker Ray Banks which is Damascus as well. A new custom knife for the fold 36209665036_db8d6727e9_b_d

I also picked an early Sabatier for $1 at the thrift shop. A new custom knife for the fold 36209664916_7b1b8efdec_b_d

My bread knife is a Shun Classic Damascus Bread Knife. A new custom knife for the fold 36251589765_3f7b0ef6c0_z_d

For breaking things down and heavy duty chopping is this Randall Chefs Knife. A new custom knife for the fold 36209664796_3360094801_z_d

Plus I've picked up a few Wüsthof and Henckels slicing and paring knives at local yard sales.

Sante: Did you know world renowned pipe maker, Rolando Negoita, is making Chef's Knives? Maybe you can get him to do a matching "Pipe and Knife" set? king

DoverPipes, really appreciate you posting this video. I had no idea this outstanding pipe maker also made knives. As a former knife maker I enjoyed this video immensely.
Now he needs too also make some fixed blade hunting knives, those will surely sell immediately!!

He does!!!
He makes fixed blade, folders, Ulus with cutting boards, pipe knife / tools, tampers  etc.
He made me this slip joint folder from a re-purposed lawn mower blade. The scales are carbon fiber.

Thanks for sharing the picture. Now I'm going to do some research on the maker. Oh, old lawn mower blades when heat treated and forged make great knife blades...60 to 62 HRC. Also old car leaf spring metal. One of my personal favorites is a knife I made from an old rasp, much work to achieve the proper HRC once you anneal the steel, it must then be re-tempered, but well worth it at the end. The file knife holds the best edge out of all of my knives, and I have many. One can actually shave with this knife, I have!
