    A cleaver and two tomahawks

    After looking at your website and seeing your offerings, I'll take that as a huge compliment !! I sometimes get sidetracked from my main lineup and want to try a different design. Most often I'm a starter of many finisher of few.

    Stress and faith

    A cleaver and two tomahawks

    Information on Richard Batson Knives

    Thanks GHEzell. I found the knifeforums pages and a few others, but not the Oregon Knife Collectors newsletter. Great story. I hope someday to be lucky enough to acquire on of his knives. I will probably try and emulate his design and make one for myself, but it's not the same as an original.

    Information on Richard Batson Knives

    Hi all, I'm looking for any info about Richard Batson. He was a great inspiration when I was younger. I called him (probably 20+ years ago) and asked him about his knives. He was very pleasant and spoke to me for a while answering all my questions politely even though they were coming from and...
