Caffrey, Ed

Having produced knives for nearly 20 years, trying most every avenue, and material available, I personally believe that the toughest, best cutting knives can only be produced through the proper forging and heat treatment of the chosen steel. Rather than try to impress people by offering every type of blade steel under the sun, I choose to work with what I know (52100, 5160 or 1080 for straight steel blades). These steels have proven they possess the durability, toughness, as well as the ease of sharpening that are a must. This way I can constantly seek improvement without having to start over each time I produce a blade. This doesnt mean that I never try something new. Currently I am making some pieces with S30V, and thus far I find it to be the most acceptable type of stainless steel I have seen to date. It will never replace my forge steels, but it will be available on special request. For those who enjoy Damascus steel, I offer a wide variety of this material, from barstock for other knifemakers, to exotic patterned mosaic pieces for the discerning patron. My Knifemaking began in 1982 shortly after joining the Air Force. I earned my ABS Journeyman Smith rating in 1994, and my ABS Mastersmith rating in 2000. My work has appeared in Blade Magazine, Fighting Knives Magazine, Knives Illustrated Magazine, the Knives Annual, and The Wall Street Journal
