My interest in knives are primarily the technical aspect with focus on functionality and mechanical properties as toughness and wear resistance. To achieve excellence in my knives I use the optimum materials for knives available today, and I have access to heat treatment practices unavailable for most knifemakers.

My background as a metallurgist gives me an understanding of materials beyond that of most. This is a great resource in most parts of knife making, especially in material selection and heat treatment. There is a vast number of steels on the marked, and those considered the best are in most cases not. To evaluate and choose materials you have to understand how the steel is affected by the composition and heat treatment.
For those spending time in the snow and need a low profile...
The handle is white linen micarta and the sheath is white kydex. The blade is 7” long, blasted surface and in A8-mod steel.
I have made the same model with 5”, 6” and 7” blade length in other colors.
The kydex sheath is made by Tore Kvande-Pettersen. At this time he makes all the kydex for my larger knives (blade longer than 5”).
