Sean O'Hare is owner and operator of O'Hare Knives. Sean has been making handcrafted custom knives since 2001, moving to full time knife making in early 2009. He strives to make each of his handmade knives with a clean well thought out design that is both great looking but also very functional. At present his custom knives are mostly stock removal via flat grinding but some knives are forged, he also forges his own Damascus. Typical steels used are CPM154CM, CTS XHP, O1, or Damascus. Handle materials include Stabilized Woods, Carbon Fiber, G10, Micarta, Mammoth Ivory, Water Buffalo Horn, or Giraffe Bone. Arizona Desert Ironwood has also been added to the inventory and although not stabilized it is hard.
