What's with the J.S.

I was asked about the J.S. stamp on some of the knives Ricasso area..

I am an American Bladesmith Society Journeyman Smith, I tested for and passed the J.S. test at the Atlanta Blade Show in 2008.

So on any knife I have forged the blade on I will stamp my name on the private(left) side of the ricasso and J.S. on the public side(right)..

These are my five J.S. Test knives

Tactical edges

These 2 are what some people are calling tactical knives, so I will go with it... To me they are just big field grade knives.

#1 clip point utility/field knife, Sand blasted 6" stock removed 5160 HC, green canvas micarta handle slabs, kydex sheath.. This knife is hell for tough . 5160 is a high carbon spring steel, with a nice hard edge for edge retention and a tough springy spine for toughness. This is one of those knives you can jam into a wall and use it as a step without damaging it. $250

#2 Fighter/utility knife, 6 1/2" forged 80 CRV High Carbon steel blade, Bead blasted NS guard and Black canvas micarta handle, kydex sheath.. This is a field knife for the guy who wants the best I make, in a field knife. Hand forged 80CRV high carbon steel hand finished to a 600grit finish, a big beefy tang runs to within 3/4" of the end of the one piece micarta handle. $450

I would say that those are defective and you should send them to me and I'll dispose of them for you. But dang brother, you are making some very fine knives.

No all the defective knives go in a drawer or if they happen to be real nice but pi*s me off get chunked out into the woods behind the shop. Honest there are more than a few out there, but I did stop this practice when I had to replace a tire on my mower.

Saying cr*p like that and you will have a bunch of us over there going through those woods. And that is especially true if your bad ones are like the one posted.

There was one real nice bowie that was resisting very hard and then it bit me, it got chucked into a berry patch, I think you might be able to see it now (winter clear) only problem is at 60-70 yards #4's out of a 10ga still penetrate kinda deep

But it would be a very interesting test???


PS: bring your own antiseptic, I will not waste mine on a flesh wound....

new one

I have been making this style of knife for over 15 years, stock removed 5/32" 0-1 TS blade 4" long. I have made them with just about every handle material except leather, now I almost always use G-10 or carbon fiber when I find some thick enough.. I do a leather or kydex sheath for this one. That is a false edge on the top clip. $130
