My Knife-Making Process
Each Tactical Knife blade is water-jet cut by family owned and operated Water Jet Tech, in St Louis, MO. I mark each blade for edge thickness and then hand grind with a flat ground bevel. After grinding the blade to about 90% my maker’s mark is applied, then it is heat treated at my shop, in an Even Heat kiln. Then each blade receives a final grind and edges are rounded and softened. My tactical blades are painted with Cerakote, and sharpened with diamond sharpening stones.
Handle slabs are cut from a Micarta sheet, beveled and sandblasted for final finish, providing a good look and texture for better grip. Handle slabs are fixed to the knife using painted screws and barrel nuts.
To finish your knife order, I hand-make a sheath from .080 Kydex, heated and formed to your knife.
My knives are offered with either a belt clip for Vertical carry, or Flex Loops for Horizontal Small of Back Carry.
