That Knife.

One day little eyes will look over my knife collection with awe and wonder, kinda like I did with my Grandfather's collection when I was little. A tiny finger will point to a knife and a small voice will ask, "tell me about that knife"? My eyes will probably strain to see exactly which knife has drawn the curiosity. "That knife"? I'll start with a grin on my face, a story will follow. At times those stories will be boring and at times there will be more behind it and by "more", I mean a…

Great River Forge.

I've been blessed with the opportunity to try out a few custom made knives and it's been an awesome experience so far.

My latest custom comes from knife maker, Keith R Johnson of Great River Forge. He is an extremely talented maker and a blast to deal with. I enjoyed the experience from the word go and I look forward to having him make me another knife or two down the road.

The quality is hard to beat and a production knife can't even begin to challenge it. Keith has some… Continue

If you had to leave your house tomorrow in a pressure, can't return for a while situation, what knife is going with you?

Lloyd's knife.

"Ping", "Ping", Ping". The craftman's hammer falls, driving the pin and setting the blade.

He straightens himself from his bench and works the newly set blade against it's spring. A smooth action and a solid "click" proves that the blade is set well and the lock up is tight. This is just another step before a finished product, one that may end up spending his life in the silk purse of a rich man, or in the pocket of the dirt poor farmer down the road, either way, it's prepared…
