Tahar has been making his own damascus since 1995 and now creates his own sole-authorship fixed blades and folding knives. Tahar's shop is currently located in Maryland.
Mastersmith Jay Hendrickson said in 2009 that he was ""impressed with all of his damascus work"" and ""I believe he has a lot of potential as a knifemaker."" In 2011, Wm. C. Johnson was so impressed with Tahar's damascus on display in Las Vegas that he purchased two billets to use in his own work.
One of Tahar's knives was voted ""Best Damascus"" at the Texas Knife Show in April 2011.
