We have many more pictures on our Facebook Page.

The Bully, available in SM-100 and CPM 154 is a tank of a folder, but fits nicely in the hand and is easy to carry.


Really had some fun with this little SM-100 neck knife for a new customer, not my typical style, but I like it a lot.  He wanted a stone wash finish, but decided to stick with the as heat-treat finish after seeing it – I think he made the right choice!


The development of the Red Wing model – these out of SM-100.  Worked with a Navy SEAL to nail down the design – my favorite project to date!

A few unique SM-100 Knife coloration shots.


My little guy learning how to scribe center lines before grinding (440C diving knife).


SM-100 dive knife prototype – it has some design issues, but you gotta love Fred’s heat treat!

Some little SM-100 Dashis made from left over pieces of plate.

Progression of SM-100 knives from sheet to fully heat treated blades.


SM-100 Kobold Expedition Tools knives that went on Ran Fiennes historic winter trek across Antarctica.


A little 1095 machete work for a slightly unique client.


My littlest guy helping set up a new TW-90 grinder.

My oldest boy helping clean some cans that will ultimately be loaded with SM-100 powder and converted into plate for knives.


Pictures of a corrosion test Summit Materials did comparing SM-100 to titanium, 304 stainless, S30V, and 440C.  The SM-100 came out clean, the off color in the picture is only due to the rough as-hot rolled surface.


Funny SM-100 cartoon someone sent me.


My dear friend, Duane Dwyer.


SM-100 Little Bastard knives profiled and rough ground.


Fred measuring the hardness of an SM-100 Kobold Big Dipper blade, spot on at Rc 60.

I really like the stonewashed finished on SM-100 – or any blade material for that matter.
