These are some examples of Paul's handmade
knives. Functional combinations of mechanical and organic
influences, custom knives are just another of Paul's
passions. Most start with 440-C stainless steel, D-2
tool steel or fine Damascus. Through many hours of grinding
and shaping, the blade is formed, then heat treated
to 55 Rockwell, and double tempered. Guards and accents
are brass, bronze or German silver and handle materials
range from exotic woods to antler to fossilized Wooly
Mammoth tusk. Prices range from $750 to $2,000, depending
on materials and design.
