I make my knives by hand in my workshop in Omakau. I control all parts of the process, from forging, grinding and hardening blades to making the boxes that carry them. Mainly I use D2 steel or make Damascus (pattern welded) steel for the blade, but have a number of stainless and non stainless alternatives. For knife handle material I prefer NZ native timbers or bone.
My first workshop was located in Crewetown Christchurch and in 2010 I moved to Ophir in Central Otago and set up a workshop in the nearby Omakau.
