Hi folks, my name is Michael Peterson (mike) for short. Ive been blade smithing for over 20 yrs. My father Chris Peterson, who is a master bladesmith, began teaching me his trade at the young age of 10 years old.
I specialize in hand-made Damascus steel and all blades are forged to individual shape. I take pride in the fact that my knives are all made using traditional methods and tools.
From Forge to Finish all knives are Handmade. All bolsters are made from German Silver or 416 Stainless Steel, Brass and Copper.

The various types of Damascus Steel I use are Random Patterned Damascus forged from 01 Tool Steel and A36 Mild Steel, Raindrop Damascus, Twist Damascus, Cable Damascus, and Chain Saw Chain/Motorcycle Chain Damascus. Another Steel I use is 5160.

Leather Sheaths are all Hand-made by Geraldine Peterson,
