I took up knifemaking in 1988 simply because I needed a special type of dispatcher knife for use when tracking down injured deer with my trail dog.
I was indeed warned that knifemaking is a cronic disease, and it proved true: I never stopped!
Knifemaking is what I do when I'm not tending my job as a psychological consultant to the County of Funen, or indulging in my three other major passions: The deer hunt , Islamic Coins, and the study of The Plains Indian Tribes, and their plight in past and present.
You'll find that many of my knife models are named after Plains Indian Tribes or famous personalities belonging to them.
My attitude towards knifemaking can be summarized as follows:
A knife is first and foremost a tool. This means that it must perform as such, and all my knives are meant for use. This implies that it must have a strong, keen and tough blade, and a handle that fits well into your hand. Then the second most important thing: Aesthetics.
To my mind a knife must also be beautiful in shape, materials and craftmanship. This is why I put 25-30 hours and upwards into the production of a knife.
Of course I have my own ideas about knife design. You'll find that designwise my knives represent a transition between Scandinavian and continental European knife making tradition.
If you should have your own idea about what your own personal knife should look like I'm willing to "taylor" it for you. All it takes is for you to send me a 1:1 scale outline, and we can discuss handle materials, price, etc.
