Friends of handmade knives.

The above is the name of a "facebook-group"
and the original name is Freunde handgemachter Messer

There`s lotsa prof-, semiprof and amateur knifemakers there
who post their works. Some are remarkable, and very different
to the styles, ideas and makes one see on this remarkable forum.

So. I will post the ones i find worth sharing, in this thread.
Other examples of german makers might be included also
as i stumble upon them.

The damascene details on that grip are just mindblowing.

Nice clay temper on the edge there, but my problem with file sourced knives has always been that the look is interesting, but it promotes corrosion. The other problem you have to concern yourself with as a maker is the quality of the steel since the supply of old quality steel files is finite and the supply of new low quality Chinese files is nearly infinite.

Are they posting the details of their grinds so everyone can see if the plunges are symmetric and the shoulders square?

Some post more pics some less.

The Filebased one is more lowtech, obviously compared to those Bowies.


Steelwise, germany having been a steel-country and the owners of all those 70-120yr old files dying out - the supply of them on german flea markets do seem endless.

Just by looking at them you can see they are the real deal from before the war.

Wow, that looks a lot like Valkman's "Nightmare" grind. Shifting from hollow ground to flat ground at the tip.

Did Valkman do that before Rick Hinderer started doing it? Hinderer's "Spanto" tip blades are also HG body with FG tip, but his transition is nearly seamless.

Don't know. Have to ask Don. There's little "new under the sun."

I don't know, I only did a few knives this way and wanted to try it after seeing some of Mick Strider's Nightmare grinds. They really are a nightmare and I'm sure Rick was much better at it than I was.
