Who does your heat treating?
I do. All heat treating is done in house. Heat treat is the absolute most important part of the knife, if done poorly, it’s junk. No corners are cut, absolute control of temperature is necessary. It’s what I’m known for and will never be farmed out.
How do I care for my knife?
If it is a carbon steel knife, it can rust if not cared for properly. Keep a light coat of oil on it, wipe off fingerprints and generally keep it clean. If it is stainless steel there is not a whole lot you need to worry about, just keep it clean. Note: Stainless Steel is not 100% rust proof, it can develop rust in the wrong environment, like the bilge of your boat, or any other damp environment… don’t keep it in a wet place for extended length of time! Let a professional sharpen it!
Do you make your own Damascus steel?
YES! All of our Damascus is made in house. Be it Stainless or Carbon Steel. It is forged under the big Nazel 4N pneumatic hammer. It’s another thing I will never farm out, making the steel is what started my whole journey into this craft.
