Now, a bit about my knives. I do not forge my knives. I have neither the space, ventilation or, most importantly, desire to pound metal - especially high quality stainless steel. I purchase only high quality 440C and 9 cr14 high-carbon stainless steel blanks that have been hardened and tested to at least 57 on the Rockwell hardness scale. These steels can withstand extreme cold and heat and not fail. The blanks come from a source trusted and respected by knife makers world-wide.
I buy the blanks roughly shaped and I do the finish work, bevels, grinds, file-work, polishing etc. Handle material is often hand cast by myself using a wide variety of materials. Because I do not do the forging, I can pass significant savings to customers, whether they be hunters or cooks or collectors.
My sheaths are hand made here at Kearney Kobz. Each is tailored to the knife it is paired with. No 'one size fits all' nylon sheaths here. Leather. Kydex is cheaper and easier, but leather is just plain sexier! I make functional sheaths to hold the knife firmly and safely. They are unique but not works of art.
I often offer knives without a sheath at a significant savings, but this is only until I can get a sheath made. Once the sheath is made, it adds about 40% to the cost and since it is a one time sheath for a one-time knife, I only sell the knife with its sheath.
