Knifemaker from NH

Hello,
My name is David Schott and I am a knifemaker from southern NH.

I've been making knives for a few years now, mainly fixed blades but just starting to get into slipjoints.

I have waves of productivity marked by periods of inactivity since I am a part-time knifemaker with a full time job and wife :)

After a very trying year, i'm hoping to get back into the swing of things this spring and to begin producing knives regularly going forward.

I was referred here by a number of BF guys, but I'll give Indian George the credit since he sends out the most emails :)

My severly outdated website is www.schottknives.com and is long overdue for a complete overhaul and pictures of everything i've made in the past 2 years :)

I enjoy knives, all shooting sports, hiking, camping, dinner and long walks on the beach...wait...is this a knife forum or E-harmony?

Ive just updated my website completely, adding a bunch of more recent pics to the mix! It now has about 30 galleries of various knives and pics!
 
Thanks everyone! i hope my dry spell in knifemaking will be coming to a close in February. I am just finishing re-doing my entire kitchen and as soon as that is wrapped up, i'll be hitting the shop hard! I already have a Damascus EDC ground, HT and ready for handles as well as a folder in the works.

I have a love-hate relationship with Ironwood. On one hand, I honestly haven't ever seen a wood take as gorgeous a finish or look as good as ironwood (top-shelf ironwood, at least). One the other hand, my tools hate it, my belts hate it, it irritates the heck out of my nose throat and lungs when i come into contact with the dust and in general, I find it harder to work with than steel for some reason. Go figure!

Welcome David. I used to get up in your neck of the woods a looooong time back and really enjoyed the area around the White Mtns. Pretty country.

Check your link. I think you got an exclamation point in there somehow and it doesn't go through. Nice site and beautiful work.

Carey,
Thanks!

I love the white mountain area. I would love to retire someday to the lincoln area. Unfortunately, I live only about a mile over the border north of the MA line.

I fixed that link, thanks for the heads-up!
