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.


This is a shorter version of the survival knife, but with a slightly larger guard. With a total length of 19 cm it is somewhat small compared to a full size knife. With a handle thickness of 11 mm it is also quite thin. It is intended as an alternative to a large folding knife in cases where you don’t want to compromise on the strength. On the standard model the steel is A8-mod. Thickness is approximately 5 mm, and handle is black textured G-10, giving a very secure grip. Pictured here with kydex sheath with nylon webbing.
