Knives of the North carries a vast selection of supplies for knife making, so let your imagination run wild.
Our customer, Kurt Iverson (firstname.lastname@example.org), lives in the rainy state of Washington and has crafted big Leukus suitable for cutting brush in his region. Kurt is a retired professional surveyor who cuts a lot of brush while maintaining his deer and elk trails around his home. Every day, rain or shine!
The knives in the first photo are very light weight with a hidden tang, thinner blade, and Scandi grind. The knife in the second image is a 180mm Leuku with oak handle and homemade brass bolster. A Viking tool. The third image features one of his favorites. The 145mm stainless blade is just right for trimming brush in the rain in Washington state. The bigger Leukus are for heavier cutting. This knife features ebony, laminated G10, and curly maple. Nicely done, Kurt!
Our customer Roger Foster (email@example.com) came up with a really neat idea: a handle for a carving knife with interchangeable blades! He made a couple different knives using various sizes of Laurin blades (42mm through 84mm), using a set screw to hold the blade tang into place. The handles are made from Desert Ironwood, Black Olive Wood, and Curly Maple. Here's how Roger approached the assembly: "I drilled a hole to locate the tang end. Then enlarged the rest of the hole. Filled it with epoxy wrapped the tang with wax paper so I could pull out blade when set. This created a nice tight pocket. Then a shaped 3/16 brass with a 8-32 set screw with a nice snug fit for blade. Brass and g10 liner is all pinned through bolster into wood . End brass threaded studs epoxied into."
This is our customer Mikhail's second attempt at making a knife. I'd say he's got a knack for this!
Our customer John Jacobson (firstname.lastname@example.org) made this very attractive knife using the Roselli blunt-tipped opening blade, a new product of ours that we specially ordered for him. I really like the smooth lines on this!
Our customer Mikhail decided to try knife making, and this is his first ever attempt. What an amazing job! We can't wait to see what he produces next. With walnut for the handle and sheath and a Laurin stainless 125mm blade, this is a knife that anyone would be proud to have in their collection.
Keith Chapman (email@example.com) makes beautiful knives using Laurin blades with handles made from stacked layers of pearloid, micarta, maple, and antler. Very nice work!
This customer works with a variety of blades: Mora, Laurin, and Laurin PT:
Here are some very nice knives made with Laurin blades and a handle made from Whitetail antler crown with maccaser ebony, brass and red linen micarta.
Fred DeCicco (firstname.lastname@example.org) up in Fairbanks, Alaska has produced some of the finest knives we have ever seen. The blades in the first three are Roselli Ultra-High Carbon steel, making them extremely tough and durable. The last two are made from Laurin and Mora blades respectively. The handles are works of art made from birch bark, hardwood and moose antler.
Our customer Nicolas (email@example.com) makes some very nice-looking folding knives. We don't carry folding knives, but we can sure appreciate the workmanship here!
Our customer John Jacobson does some outstanding work with Laurin blades and handles made from stacked layers of birch bark. You can follow him on Instagram: @flute_reed_ovens . We love the look of a layered/stacked handle, it's a technique that has such beautiful results!
The first knife in this collection was made using a Laurin PT 95 blade, which is a progressive tempered metal that combines high strength with superior hardness (the sheath is from us too):
W. Lanham makes some very attractive knives, this guy has really got some talent!
Our customer Lee made a small neck knife using a Mora Classic #1 blade, and some walnut, pecan, and pine wood. What a neat little knife!
Check out this fantastic knife made by one of our customers, using a Laurin 95mm blade with a hammered finish. That hammered look really makes this an eye-catching knife!
Greg Lewis has discovered a great combination: antlers and Mora blades!
