Bladesmithing is something I do in my spare time. All of my blades are hand-forged. Steels that I use include 5160, 1095, L6, and others. I also use combinations along with cable to produce my own damascus. I began seriously trying to make knives in 1995. I became an American Bladesmith Society Journeyman smith at the 1999 Blade Show. Recently, I became a Master Smith at Blade Show, 2004.
Bear Paw Knives are made from D2 tool steel blanks recovered from industrial blades utilized by the paper industry. The blanks are sliced out using a CNC plasma cutter that precisely cuts the design without adversely affecting the hardness or temper of the steel. The D2 blade material used in Bear Paw Knives has been industrially heat treated for the maximum combination of strength, toughness, and durability possible.
Some of the companies listed in this directory that make products here in America, may also have them manufactured in other countries as well.
Many businesses alter their brand names, manufacturing practices and product designs with little or no notice, so if there are questions that still remain, we suggest contacting the manufacturer directly.
