Dean, Harvey

Visit this maker's website: Harvey J. Dean Custom Knives. Harvey Dean strives to use the best quality materials in every knife he makes. He begins by hand-forging the blade in your choice of high carbon steel or his own Damascus. The knife is then completed with the customer's choice of handle material, fittings, and optional embellishments. Harvey prefers to use natural materials for handles, such as hardwoods, antler, pearl, and fossil ivory, but is open to the use of other types of handle materials at the request of the client. Nickel or sterling silver, iron, brass, bronze, or Damascus may be chosen for fittings. Harvey has been handcrafting knives since 1981 and began hand-forging blades in 1986. As a member of the American Bladesmith Society he received his Mastersmith rating in 1992. In the summer of 2004, Harvey was selected to serve on the American Bladesmith Society Board. He has served as vice-president of the Texas Knifemakers and Collectors Association since its inception. Harvey shares his knifemaking knowledge.

Along with Johnny Stout, Harvey hosts two knifemaking seminars a year in New Braunfels, Texas. His knives have been featured in many publications and magazines worldwide.
