Handmade Knives

The knife is one of humankind's oldest of tools. Made in a dizzying variety of materials and styles, knives can arguably claim to be the most varied tool and weapon in existence. It is also the most enduring. From the earliest sharpened stones, bones, and woods to the most high-tech titanium or super-alloy steel blades and designs no other item created by man has lasted so long.

In its most basic form a knife consists of a blade and handle. Knives are generally thought to have a single edge and possibly a partial secondary edge. Double edges are usually considered to be daggers, though not always. Lengths vary from less than an inch up to about twenty inches. Any longer of a blade seems to fall into the short sword classification.

Knives for Sale

Kitchen knives, skinning knives, hunting knives, camp knives, tactical knives, balisongs, combat knives, fillet knives, utility knives, bird and trout knives, emergency knives, pocket knives, folding knives, lockblades, and the list goes on and on. Knives have been the silent and often overlooked companions of explorers, scientists, pioneers, heros, and housewives. Chances are that the overwhelming majority of people use some incarnation of the knife on a daily basis.

Do you cook? Do you open your mail? Do you use your little folder to cut out coupons at the grocery store or how about that one present with ribbon wrapped so tight and strong that no amount of pulling or peeling can dislodge? Out comes your trusty little pocket knife or scissors and zip...done.

Knives are used to peel fruit, tighten screws, carve wooden animals and they break when used as a pry-bar. Okay, most do because they aren't designed for that.

At Forged In Time, our hand forged handmade knives are of the highest quality materials and construction. They are designed for real world use. They are durable, attractive, and very sharp. Every blade is handmade with careful attention to detail and overall purpose. From the forging technique to the heat-treating, the polishing, the design, the hilt materials and construction, and of course the blade steel itself.

I have spent years studying the elemental table, metallurgy, and the effect of heat and forging on the alloy content of steel. This gives me an understanding of the specific working properties of the steel itself and how to manipulate those to get the best performance possible.

Hand Forged Knives

Each design is carefully considered before a prototype is made, then that prototype is tested thoroughly. If the prototype passes the testing then a working model is made and the model is then available for sale. If changes need to be made to the deisgn or materials then it is done. Nothing is offered to you the customer until it has been rigorously tested. That's why you can order a custom-grade hand forged handmade knife from Forged In Time with complete confidence that you will get the best possible product at the most reasonable knife backed by our lifetime warranty.
