Damascus Knives


Recommended Posts

A few weeks ago there was a thread about custom knives and the TV show "Forged in Fire"

 

My friend Shayne was on the show and won with his butterfly blades , he took second in the All Star show. Real good guy and Really good at what he does

 

He was working on Sages ( my horse) shoes today and does have some custom knives for sale if anyone has an interest

I have a lot of respect for people that can create things of beauty from raw material like that. I hope he's as proud of his work as he should be.

Very cool show and your buddy did a great job representing his work. I don't watch much TV as it doesn't hold the illusion it does for someone who doesn't work in the industry but this is one of the shows I record every week it is on.

Where are the blades he has for sale? I didn't see them on that site or did I miss them?

Hey brother

 

I told him I would put the instagram link up here in case there was interest , he has a number finished, just reach out to him and let him know you're IIRA , he will send you images and pricing

 

I don't have a dog in this fight but will attest that Shayne is a solid person and does outstanding work, I hold him in high regard

Would be in the market for one. But, just purchased a brand new BUCK Frontiersman. Anyway, It's a great TV show which I often watch.

I saw him on the show. He was humble, classy and knew his shit.

Got one of these on the way as we speak.

Looks like it was patterned after the daggers the Nazis carried in WWII

You're right.

Solingen has been around since 1829. The Nazis procured these blades and added their markings.

I was kinda suprised they still made this style given it's history.

Fairbairn Sykes knife. Allies WW 2.

Cold Steel makes that one. They're fetching a pretty penny for the reproductions.

Just saw the Fairbairn Sykes for sale on Amazon at $180 [see pix below]. Would love to have the Boker and Fairbairn too. But, just got the Buck shown above.

I watch that show all the time. Great show! My neighbor is Greg Lightfoot, check his knives out at www.lightfootknives.com. He has been featured in many magazines for his knives, does great work as well. I own a couple of his knives.

I see where he calls his knives extreme jewelry. I told my wife the other night that knives are guy-jewelry.

Completely agree. That design evokes some very specific thoughts. Great handling knife. My grandfather left me a few of the originals for my collection.

Nice! Think those Buck 110 Indians were offered by the Ramp Indian dealer. Separately, I just ordered one of Amazon Fairbairn Sykes shown above.

I found them at a local knife store in Los Angeles. They were discounted to $20 each.
