Dunn Knives has been specializing in hand-crafted, custom knives for outdoor sportmen/women made in America and are used by those who hunt, fish trap. One of the questions we are asked most frequently is about the kind of steel we use. We are currently using S30V on all of our blades. This powdered-metal tool steel has a high-carbon, high-vanadium content, yet also contains enough chromium to easily be classified as stainless. We feel this steel offers "the best of both worlds" - a carbon-based stainless blades.

The shop is owned and operated by Richard Furrer as a one man general blacksmith shop crafting metalwork from iron as well as bronze, aluminum, stainless steel and titanium. In addition to architectural work such as gates and railings Richard also forges hand made knives and swords, many from steel he smelts himself from raw ore and other materials.
