Some of my recently made one of a kind knives.
I started my journey in the knife world from the wrong end. The very first thing I learned was how to make pattern welding. My teacher was Algirdas Stankus from Lithuania. It took a time to make knives out of it. It all started in 1989 and for many years, I made knives exclusively with damascus blades. And damascus was all made by me.
However, every thing has it's time and place. You can be exited by it only for so long. And one day I realized I'm not in love with pattern welding as a process anymore! It was done!
But I still liked to use it. So here are some recent knives I made, using damascus made by others.
