Knives by Ray Kirk, Master Smith

Ray Kirk has been forging knives since 1989 under the handle of Raker Knives. He was a cast member on Forged in Fire S1 E8. He is also the designer and maker of the famed “Trail of Tears” knife. Ray attends many of the hammer-ins and seminars on knife making around the country throughout the year.

When I spoke to Ray at the Tucson Knife show earlier this month, he allowed me to list a couple of his knives on the website. Little did I realize how well made the knives he gave me to consign were. After holding, photographing, and measuring them, I now want one for my own. You can bet I’m going to get one too!

His NDN integral knives are a pleasure to hold and use. Ray designed these knives for what he calls EDU (Every Day Use). Believe me, it is a knife that you would love to carry for everyday use, no mater if you’re out hiking, camping, boating or working.

Bushcraft Nemesis, homestead knife

Colonial has teamed up with custom knife maker and outdoor author Abe Elias to deliver a line of four ETAG Bushcraft knives–tactical utility knives that are solid work horses to meet the needs of service people and bushcrafters alike.  To get a tactical appeal doesn’t mean you have to give up the slightest piece of working advantage! These first offerings fit right in place for any user–Military or civilian–because both want knives that work hard but aren’t hard on the user.

Slim and sleek it is a narrow blade that stows easily among the loads of gear service people have to carry. It Sports a sharp edge and a aggressive point. Great for odds jobs quick cuts The Nemesis is the foe of any thing that stands in your way. A lively utility blade with a tactical profile that makes it almost disappear from others site on your kit but stays handy for when you need it. Trim handle design makes the blade nimble to control yet there are plenty of open contours that make it easy to use with gloves on.

Legends of Knifemaking: Paul Fox

Jesse Paul Fox Jr, known by his middle name Paul, was a long-time member of the Knifemakers’ Guild and owner of Pioneer Woodcarving. As Fox’s friend and fellow maker Tim Britton noted on The Knife Network, “Paul may have been one of the most creative knifemakers of all time. He was perhaps best known for his electric-motor-driven folder and a series of very fancy knives that were a lot like sculpture. He won the W.W. Cronk Award at the Knifemakers’ Guild shows till they asked him to stop entering and let someone else win.

Paul Fox 1938 – 2012

According to Britton, Fox had a great sense of humor. “Paul had a Chevy Suburban that he bought at a North Carolina State Surplus auction for $700,” Tim recalled. “It was ugly, yellow and very beat up.  He took it to Hendricks Motors of NASCAR fame and had them put a full race motor in it.  Damned thing would fly and Paul loved nothing better than challenging redneck racers and usually beating them. Guess you have figured out by now, that dude was a character!

“Paul was very much at home with locals—guys from the garage, bread-truck drivers, etc. He was one of a kind, like so many of us in knifemaking. I can still see Paul using the remote control boat to chase geese off his pond!”
