Process of manufacture

The creation of a new knife model follows a particular process. In the 1stst time, it is necessary to have a set of specifications which varies depending on the purpose of the knife. However, somes models are born from a pure research of design.
In general, I start with a start with a paper drawing and then I move on to computer drawing on Autocad(CAD software).

Once the design has been validated, I make several prototypess until I am 100% satisfied with the volumes and ergonomics.
Then I make the knives are cut outs laser-cut from N690Co steel.

To make a knife, several steps are are several steps involved

- First of all, it is necessary to make which will give the knife its cutting capacity and its blade style (flat, hollow, high...).and high grinding...). This step is carried oute at the backstand by handeI do not use a guide. I use a " wire guard " I use a wire guard to mark thethe edge of each blade. Finally, I use different grains of abrasive tape abrasive tape depending on the finish of the knife.
- • For coutewith a plate handle: it is necessary to make the drilling, cutting of handles, adjustments and shaping. All this is done before done before hardening.
- When the knife and the handle are finishedI proceed to the marking by cold stamping of the unique number. Indeed, each custom knife has a number stamped in the mass and delivered with a certificate of authenticity.
- Once all these steps are done, the blades are soaked by me under aluminum plate, then a cryo at -20 ° and a double temper are made to give its properties to the blade.

The final steps result in the knife

- • After return After returning to the workshop, each blade will be "cleaned" to receive the desired finishes by the customer (brushed, stonewash, acid sprays).
- • Finally, I proceed to assemble the handle, either in paracord, or in platess (which are mostly gluedes and then finishedes by hand with differents with different grits of sandpaper depending on the materials useds).
- • The knife is thus 90% finished, and all that remains is the step that makes a knife a knife: sharpening.

Finally, lhe knife is cleaned and packed in a case for shipment. to be shipped. Some of the knives will go under my photographic lens to animate my social networks and to decorate my website.

It is therefore as this that your future knife will be born in my workshop. A knife goes through manya knife goes through many stages of manufacture the right equipment, skillsequipment, skills and experience, experience and and expertise acquireds over time through passion.
