Lamb splitter and carcass splitter

A couple of new big blades that got shipped out earlier this month. Two firsts on these: the cord-wrapped one is the heaviest I've made, and the slab handle on the lamb splitter is the longest slab I've ever made. Both of them are forged from 80CrV2 steel with Boltaron sheaths. The wrapped one has a...

Re: ST-1 stabby thing self defense tool

I might experiment at some point down the road to see how a G10 version would hold up, but they are designed with the idea of wearing them on a plate carrier or similar LBE as a backup. The handle on it gives a lot of stability, with the tradeoff of it being wider and a little less concealable. But ...

ST-1 stabby thing self defense tool

On the mid-tech side of things, I came up with a self-defense tool that debuted at Blade Show this summer: the ST-1. They're waterjet cut from 1/4" 4140, ground and heat treated, with a Cerakote ceramic gun coating, with Boltaron sheaths. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4821/46187262272_c0c650c4d6_c....

"Knife or Death" Ronin War Sword

I'm sure some of y'all have seen the new open cutting competition show on the History Channel, "Knife or Death". While I haven't gotten to compete on it (Several "Forged in Fire" competitors, including Rashelle Hams from my episode, have been on. She did quite well.), I did get to be involved in an ...

Re: Knives Illustrated article

Finally got a chance to sit down after doing Blade Show West. Tests on the knife in the article included a wrap durability and retention test of soaking it and the user's hand in a mixture of water, ice, and dish soap. The retention was solid, and the wrap unharmed. The tip was tested with stabbing ...

Re: Blade Show, months later

A better look at the forged blades. All wrapped handles. The cleavers are 5160, the rest are 80CrV2. The hemp wraps were torched prior to being impregnated with epoxy. Sheaths are Boltaron. Especially with the cleavers, I've been working on getting closer to the final shape with my power hammer, Gun...

Blade Show, months later

It has been a very busy summer and I haven't kept things updated as I should. Had an awesome Blade Show this year (first weekend in June! I am way behind!), and two full tables of inventory. This year had the distinction of the *first* show I've ever had a table where I wasn't having to sharpen blad...

Knives Illustrated article

If you pick up a copy of the November 2018 "Knives Illustrated" magazine, you'll see a well-written article about one of my knives by Waysun Johnny Tsai. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1842/44622077381_cbe840ed56_c.jpg article02 by James Helm , on Flickr https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1857/446220775...

Re: Can someone explain this style of blade to me?

I got a knife from Storm Crow. It's been to places on the planet you couldn't imagine. Met the Russian Spetsnaz on the Ukrainian Contact line. Met the Tauregs in the Sahara.......I showed it to my grandson and told him "this is yours, and when you show me your ready, you can take this ". That's so ...

Re: Really nice, economical sheath maker on etsy.

Looks like some good, solid leatherwork. I'm jealous of those who can work leather. I tried a leather sheath once; it was sad. :cry: It's thermoform polymer sheaths for me! I can do them.

My Little Rok design is about a 4" blade. Every once in a while someone wants a 3" blade from me, but 4" is about as short as I go. https://farm1.staticflickr.com/835/42699331365_1b67b8d153_c.jpg midtech03 by James Helm , on Flickr Tall flat grind with a secondary bevel (not present in that pic as i...

Thanks, Halfapint! Yep, at this point it's more a matter of trying to get work out the door than generate more interest, for which I am grateful. Shoot me an e-mail.
