The knives shown below are all hand made. Blades are knapped by me using chert, obsidian and other flints. Handles are antler, stone or native hardwoods dressed up with buffalo horn, cow bone or wood. This gallery shows examples of many of the knives I've made. Some are examples of styles I make and can be duplicated. If you see a knife that you like but it's listed as sold, send a MESSAGE to me and let me know. I can duplicate any of the sold items, usually in less than a week.

Natural glass of volcanic origin that is formed by the rapid cooling of viscous lava. It has a glassy lustre and is slightly harder than window glass. It is typically jet black, but the presence of hematite (iron oxide) produces red and brown varieties, and tiny gas bubbles may create a golden sheen. It is sometimes used as a semiprecious stone. Obsidian was used by American Indians and others for weapons and tools.
