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.
