Building on traditional methods and using time-tested materials, Solomon from The Solo Blacksmith focuses on a useful, rough and ready, pared back design. He believes everyday, raw materials are given value by skilled hands and time of the maker; it can turn a piece of scrap into long lasting objects of daily use. Creating functional tools is what drew Solomon into this craft; pans for the kitchen, chisels to turn bowls, axes and knives to whittle spoons and endless possibilities abound.
A knife to keep for generations and perfect for daily use. Made from recycled carbon steel (old car springs) and wood, this impressive knife has given discarded materials a new lease of life.
High carbon steel knives will patina to a dull grey with use. Immediately after use, wipe clean, dry and put away in a knife block to protect the edge and prevent rust. If rusty, rub the blade with a paste of baking soda and water. Please note that carbon steel will patina over time to a dull finish.
As each knife is hand forged and beaten into shape, no two knives will ever be the same and measurements may vary slightly.
