Custom Blades & Hawks
Knife, Custom Knives, Hunting Knives
From the earliest days in America, frontiersmen forged their way through the forests and across mountains. Their tools, many times, were all that stood between life and death.
James Collins lives in the hills of Eastern Kentucky. He is descended from the same line of rugged mountain men as Daniel Boone, Jim Bowie and Davey Crockett.
Growing up, he worked with his father making long rifles, hand-carving stocks, and working in their forge. James has studied for years on making his items historically accurate, from the days of longhunters to ancient times with Viking and Celtic blades.
James' knives and hawks are forged in the same tradition as blacksmiths from ages past. He starts with the best steel for heavy duty, long lasting quality. Each billet hand-hammered with precision. The finish process is also completed by hand from grinding the blade to the beautiful and intricate file-work and etching.
James handcrafts scabbards and hawk covers from plain utilitarian to beautiful hand-tooled Celtic and Norse styles.
James' work is for both use today and is the type of artistic quality that will be a heritage item to pass down through your family.
