Charcoal Forged traditional Japanese tanto & nihonto fusion style knives handcrafted from reclaimed farming and logging steel using natural materials and classical techniques...keep it simple, do it the hard way.

"My goal as an artist is to explore transformative process by creating knives from natural and reclaimed materials. My approach as a craftsman is to work within the creative constraints of the classical tanto form and nihonto handle mounting technology, building on the foundation of 13th century Japanese swordsmithing aesthetic and technique."
