Look at this beauty!
I am one of the few bladesmiths that has carried copper forge welds this far. I attribute my success with these welds to my earlier quests with mokume gane. These are exceptionally beautiful blades!!!
My name is Gerry. I have been building blades for 10 years for myself, my friends, and in September 2020 I began full time Bladesmithing.
I began my journey full time when I had 32 blades on my list to build for customers. I registered with the American Bladesmithing Society as an apprentice, on my quest to become a Master Smith.
Slowly I invested more money in equipment to assist with becoming more efficient in filling backlogged orders. I honed my skills and embarked on what has been a very rewarding path. My background as a Welder, Welding Supervisor, and Certified Welding Inspector, certainly assisted with knowledge of metalurgy. I was at a point where i understood making knives and forging quite well, and decided it was time to take some courses with well credentialed fellow bladesmiths. This was the best money i ever spent. My efficiency and quality of finish improved drastically. I tapped in to many many years of experience for a very small price.
My shop space is not fancy, but the products that leave my doors certainly are. I take great joy in bringing dreams to reality. If you do not see what you want on my website, contact me and we will make it happen!
All the leather sheaths we sell are produced right here by my wonderful wife Sophie. She is an exceptional leather artist and owns Neverland Leathers. Her attention to detail and professionalism is second to none. Most clients are pleasantly surprised with the thickness of leather she uses, and the overall feeling of quality from her leather products. Like my knives, she creates truly one of a kind sheaths, meant to be passed down from generation to generation.
