Hello from California Gold Country and
Welcome to Seamount Knife Works!
This website will provide a full description on how I make my knives, some typical photos of what my knives look like and technical articles that I have written.
I also intend to include links to material suppliers that I recommend and other interesting sites.
I make my knives one at a time, no two will be the same and they are all made like they will be my own. I like to make fixed blade fillet knives and hunters.
I do my own heat treating and all blades are Rockwell tested throughout the process to insure the best balance between hardness and toughness.
Cutting performance is primary and I tend to lean toward high
percentage alloy steels like the CPMs at the high end of
the hardness scale. My fillet knife work has taught me that
a thin flat grind section blade cuts the best and that is
how I make most blades. If you are interested in my knives I
prefer to work directly with you via e-mail or telephone.
