Major Update! We had major Surgery on my Spine. C3 thru C7. My hand problems have been getting worse for awhile, so decided to do something about it. Was rough for a week, but now I can see the end of the tunnel. Healing well and have started classes again. Weather was been unusually mild so far and that helps. Had a couple snow falls at 2",but melts in a few days. Call or email for open Fall Dates if you want a class this year. if you are interested in a class before our weather changes, now is the time to get a date. See complete info at link just above. See what my Amazing Pupils have done.
My name is Ken Wolfe and I'm a Knifemaker who uses Art, Engraving and Sculpting in my Knifemaking. I've been making Handmade Custom Knives/Knife with Special Carving or Engraving for more than 20 years. I create One of A Kind Working Knives as well as a Collectable Knives using 154CM, ATS-34 & 440C and NEW S35VN Stainless Steels or 10XX Series, 5160, L6 Carbon Tool Steels and USA Damascus. I DON'T DO Fantasy Knives
Handle Materials are usually ( Stabilized if needed ) Exotic Burlwoods, Antler, Bone, Ivory and some Man made Materials such as Micarta's and G-10/11.
All the Custom Handmade Knives in MY GALLERY are done completely by me in my shop in the Northern Sierras. All are Stock Removal. They are made with basic tools like, Belt Grinders ( I built it ) , Drills, Files. Some Makers have gone to making their custom knives faster with state of the art machinery like profiling with Water Jet or Plasma Cutters and using Mills and CNC and such to increase production and reduce costs. I'm not into cranking out a lot of Knives and do one of a kind Knives. I'm not interested in making Production Knives.
My shop is 12' from Our Home in the Northern Sierras, right off Interstate 80, among the pines and cedars on your way to Reno or North Lake Tahoe from Sacramento. Sacramento is down the freeway about 60 miles. Alta is a beautiful place to work and create. Weather has been unusually mild. A lot like last year. Hopefully we'll get lots of rain. Our little town is called Alta, just a school, diner/ store, Firehouse. We are very near where the mules and rescuers left to rescue the Donner Party near Donner Lake. About 2000 people live here in Alta and it's 30 miles to the closest Red Light.
My interest in Custom Handmade Knives began more than 20 years ago while Engraving and Carving on someone elses knife. I wanted to make my own with a blade ground so that the engraving that I do on the blade would show a little better than the usual hollow ground blade and also keep a Strong Sharp Edge. A good Knifemaking friend and Mentor taught me how to make a great Convex Ground blade in the style of Bill Moran and Ed Fowler. I do Mostly Convex and some Flat Grinds. That friend and Mentor is Knifemaker Jim Sigg of Sigma Knives. See My Link Page.
Sorry to say Bill Moran and many others have Passed On. and will be sorely missed, but will be always remembered for their many contributions to the Knife World.
Be Sure and See our KATANA SWORD PAGES with our Contemporary Japanese Katanas of Damascus Steel or 9260/5160 Mono Carbon Steel. (Link Above and below)
I enjoy Carving/Engraving my favorite Animals: Wolves, Eagles, Buffalo, Elk; and also Deer and Bear. You'll find them here on Knives, Gunstocks, Antler Belt Buckles, Bolo Ties and Custom Walking Sticks/Staffs .
Most of my knives are one of a kind and don't hang around here very long, so Knives are not always available for immediate delivery. I'm pretty busy making "Specially Ordered" knives and rarely have knives in stock. I'm also a little slow. You may Special Order a Knife with or without Engraving.
You may Special Order anything that you see in My Gallery, with a choice of steel and Handle Material if possible. L6 Carbon Steel, 5160, 10XX series Carbon, USA Damascus, CPMS35VN, 154cm and 440C Stainless.
We can Custom Engrave any Knife or Sword we make, or even yours. Personalize Yours or Order a Specially Engraved Knife for that special Person!
I also like recycling good Carbon Steel for some of my knives, so I sometimes use worn out Ferriers (Horseshoers) Rasps, Large 3' Circular Sawblades (perhaps L6), New Auto Springs ( perhaps 5160 ) and Railroad Spikes. We have recently added forged blades along with our stock removal blades, so you may Special Order either. Handle material can be Antler, Bone, Ivory, Exotic Woods or manmade materials such as Mycarta's and G10. My Knives can be hand carved, Engraved or have Scrimshaw. I make Skinners, Hunters, Bowies, Daggers, Tactical Knives, Filet, (Fillet) Knives and Katana Swords.
On the following pages you'll find my Custom Handmade Knives , as well as a Special Report on Sharpening your knife .
I do Scrimshaw, Engraving and Gunstock Carving; and there's a link to my Gunstock Carvings , Swords and more.
