About the Maker

Hagen, Philip L. (Doc)

I have been making knives since 1973 and have been a voting member of the Knifemakers Guild since 1976. Membership in the Knifemakers Guild was one of the highlights of my life, and I am constantly trying to upgrade the quality of custom made knives. I've been a dentist in private practice since 1962, and working with my hands and concentrating on detail has been my way of life. Utilizing many of the same skills, knifemaking offers me the ultimate in creative expression. All of my knives are completely handcrafted. Folders have become my specialty, however I enjoy making all types of knives, including special designs that suit the particular needs of the customer. Natural handle materials are my preference... the more exotic the better! The steels I use are 440C stainless and Udeholm UHB stainless. Heat treating is done by me in my own controlled-atmosphere oven. I have been forging blades since 1982. I make both 01-mild Damascus and 10/70 spring steel nickel Damascus. I guarantee my forged blades will not break.
