Forged Knives and Handmade Custom Leather Sheaths By Swamp Fox Knives.

I have been hand forging my knives over an anvil as full time work since 1997. Until then forge work had been a hobby taught to me by my father when I was nine years old. You can be confident that a knife from me is durable and reflects my love of early American styled blades. Leather sheaths that accompany my knives are hand sewn. I craft other items such as powder measures and horns, fire steels, war clubs and camp axes as diversions from my knife work. You can read more about me and see a video by going to the bottom of this page and selecting other pages in my website. I am semi-retired and only forge as my hands and shoulder allow.

CHECKS NEED TO BE MADE OUT TO TIM S. RIDGE. MAILED PURCHASES (by money order or check) need to be made AFTER an e-mail I have replied to OR phone call is made to me so the item can be reserved as a "PENDING" sale. In the past some items have sold through Pay Pal while a mailed transaction was on route (unknown to me) by regular mail. Personal checks will cause a 3-4 week delay in shipping because I will wait for your check to clear your bank before mailing to you. There is a $60.00 fee on returned checks.
