ABOUT THE MAKER
Krein, Tom
I have been fascinated with knives for as long as I can remember. I can’t remember a time that I didn’t have a knife… Growing up I usually had a slip joint of some kind in my pocket. As I got older I realized how useful a good knife was while playing in the woods, or fishing on the creek. After seeing a copy of Blade magazine my sophomore year in high school I decided that I wanted to be a custom knife maker. After reading everything I could find on the subject I started making some fixed blades around 1993. A little later I got a chance to work for knife making legends Bob Dozier, and A.G. Russell. I currently work for myself and my three boys help in the shop. Knives are some of man’s oldest tools. I feel the beauty of a knife is that it can be tool and weapon in one package. In my knives I feel that form should follow function. This doesn’t mean that a knife can’t be beautiful, just that its functionality shouldn’t be affected by aesthetics. I continually strive to improve my knives and the methods I use to build them.

I have made hand forged tomahawks now for over 35 years. Most of these hawks have been working historical reproductions and utility/camping axes. When it comes to design, my job as an engineer/historian/bladesmith is to draw from a wealth of historical axes aspects that we like and that can be executed with the tools and talents found in the shop. We may choose a blade shape here, a handle style there, a bowl shape from yet another piece. We may accurately copy just one tomahawk and it's details. There were thousands of tomahawks made in the 18th and 19th centuries, and because they were handmade no two were exactly alike. This makes my job pretty easy design wise: I pick the elements and execute these thoughts in the medium of iron, steel, wood and leather.
