Welcome to our collaborative knives page! On this page, you will find new collaborative knives available for immediate purchase.
What are collaborative knives? These are knives that are made in collaboration in my studio with other makers, notably Rusty Russom and James Beauchamp. These are my sons who work in the studio with me to create fine, new, and exciting knives. While the knives on my Current Knives for Sale page and my Tactical Knives for Sale Page are sole authorship knives made by my singular hands, collaboratives are made by two people. Rusty and James work with me to create custom knife orders, and also create creative knives that are offered for sale on this page.
All of the collaboratives on this page are made to my high standards in Enchanted Spirits Studio, and my hands go into every work. For instance, most of the work in a Rusty Russom-Jay Fisher collaborative is done by Rusty, and I accomplish a few critical steps to complete the knife with the same high quality that my sole authorship knives are known for.
The collaborative knives offered here have bead blasted or satin finishes, with manmade handle materials or exotic hardwoods, and no elaborate embellishment. This allows these new and talented makers to create and offer significant and worthwhile knives at a lower price, allows a speedier completion rate, and fosters the creative growth of new knives.
I've also included a few of the actual testimonials about the collaborative knives from collaborative knife clients.

Guys, the knife and sheath are everything I anticipated and then some!
The amazing grip, symmetry, balance and smooth lines complete the quality
of the detailed materials that you were able to use in creating this knife.
That sheath is unreal; I repeatedly said to my wife that I haven’t seen
anything like it. The mechanism is so smooth! Thank you for letting me own
a piece of your art and craftsmanship. Maybe after a few, ok a lot, of gift
giving occasions transpire I can suggest another knife with a gemstone handle?
Jay (and Rusty),
I received my knife yesterday and it is fantastic. Thank you again for putting such effort and time into it.
Jay thank you they are so great. My chef friends so hate me.
Yesterday my buddy took his Grady White 60 miles off the coast to Blue Fin
Tuna Fish (something very difficult for U to do in N. M.). He caught a 94# Blue Fin Tuna.
He brought it to me to butcher. I as U know have a new Chef’s knife!
It performed all the tasks of Gutting, skinning, deboning, and trimming without
requiring even one sharpening.
The knife arrived today and I am immensely pleased with results. The photos really don't do it justice. The finish is exactly what I was looking for and the balance is great. The sheath locking device works brilliantly; all in all a great piece of work.
I am already looking forward to the next knife, which will be a little more adventurous in terms of style and finish.
I just received the Kapteyn. You and Rusty did an amazing job! The knife has great balance and weight. The black palm scales look so unique and feel natural in the grip. Filings and serrations look great. A stunning and functional piece. Thank you very much!
She is a beauty! I almost don't want to use it for work purposes for fear of marring the finish! It has a nice weight to it and fits into my smallish hands very well! Easily worth every dime. I look forward to ordering a kitchen set in the near future! Thanks again.
...I am impressed with the tight fit of the bolster to the tang, looks like it’s been properly surface
ground on all of the mating faces. The attention to detail on the dovetail fit , on the scales is
fantastic and release on the sheath allows for use with gloves. If this the
caliber of work that James
is turning out he has every right to be proud, it is a thing of beauty . It’s the attention to detail
for me, that is the difference between good knife and excellent one . I will have a chance to give a
work out over the next couple months, but it looks and feels like it will definitely outlast me.
I have to admit to a little jealousy when I see the standard of work you produce.
