Ay Karambit !!!

Posted on Tuesday, November 26, 2019 4:09 PM

A unique build indeed. These karambits were a client request for specific parameters and extended my learning this past year. The karambit is a special use weapon designed in the Philippines many years ago to resemble a tiger's claw - It probably was derived from one of their farming tools at the time and has become a very popular curved tool with multiple uses.


The blade has a round finger ring at the end allowing the user to hold the blade backward along the forearm for complete control. I used a complex nitre-bluing salt bath approach to achieve the multi-colored finish from some amazing dragonskin damascus. Curves were hand ground and the back of the blade sports my traditional vine patterned hand filing design.

Another rendition of the the karambit is this rosewood handled blued curved damascus with a unique forged curved blade:

The Ferrari Knife Project ...La Ferrari

Posted on Thursday, June 29, 2017 12:18 PM


The La Ferrari knife journey…..following is the result of what began as a brainstorming session with a good friend to present his colleague with a unique gift. The idea was to bring to life the essence of Ferrari’s Supercar, the La Ferrari and Its’ distinct features into a handmade knife design.


It began with initial drawings that included the curves and racing stripes as well as colors, distinct horse and carbon fiber highlights the Ferrari is recognized for.

Next came the design of the handle scales and grinding the profile of the blade....

...embedding tire caps from Ferrari wheels into the handle itself!...

Next came the edge grinding and sharpening to make sure the Ferrari Knife not only looked good but was shaving sharp....

This was the result of the final touches of designing a sheath that would match the features and set it off...
