New Damascus Folders

I’ve been dealing with Adil Zafar from Lahore Pakistan for several years now and I can testify to the excellent quality of his workmanship. Each knife he sends me is a well made knife no matter if it’s a fixed blade or folder. His Damascus is strong and sharp. You will not go wrong with one of his knives.

Three new folders have arrived and are now up on the website for sale.

Georgia Bushcraft Knife

Just arrived, Georgia Bushcraft Knife. This knife is a collaboration between my younger brother Marc and John Benson of Shadow Tech Knives. From the 4″long, 3/4″ thick drop point blade to the canvas Micarta handles and full tang, this knife is perfect for outdoor use. If you’re a survivalist, hiker or camper, you don’t want to leave home without having it at hand.

Vintage Larry Brandstetter Custom Handcrafted Bowie

As far as I can gather, Larry Brandstetter made knives in the 80’s possible the 70’s also. His knives seem to be more like a work of art then functional knives. The few mentions I can find on him on the internet tend to be on knife forums and very few pictures of his knives.
This knife seems to be distinct of his style. It is a Bowie with a large (long) clip point blade. The handle is exotic wood with a Mother of Pearl inlay. The guard and bolster is cast nickle silver. And the blade is mirror polished.
