Welcome to my website.  I have been making forged knives since 1984.  My interest in forging began while making butt plates and trigger guards for muzzle loading guns.  I like to make just about everything from “scratch”.  I like to hand finish my work as I believe it gives a richer look to the final product.
On the "Available Items" page I am offering finished work as well as Damascus blades for the individual that wishes to make their own.  I use all tool steel, primarily 1084 and 15n20 in my Damascus and I like to use W2 tool steel and have "Cru Forge V"steel for the plain carbon blades.

I have added a fixed blade/ folding knife that I recently completed. I have another two that I will get photos of and post shortly. These knives are primarily a Bird and Trout size with a smaller liner lock folding blade.

I will have liner lock folders available soon. They will have either ball bearing or Ampco bronze bearing actions - very smooth.

I am in the process of finishing up some hunting knives ( I hope in time for hunting season) out of Cru Forge V steel. The handles will have some fantastic Curly Oak that I had stabilized. It has a ladder pattern appearance. I will use either bronze or 416 stainless steel for the guards.

The "Gallery Page" has photos of my past work. Some of these items have been published.

I accept PayPal. Just send me a email and I'll send the invoice.

I will accept special orders for both knives and blades and have the right to refuse any order. 

Please contact me and I will get back to you as soon as possible. - Bill Behnke
