New Materials

For knife blades, handles, sheaths, cases, and display stands

Please note: I do not sell material; quite the opposite, I purchase rare and unusual materials to use in my knife creation projects. If you have materials that are rare and durable, I may be interested in purchasing or trading for them!


I continually acquire new materials for knives. I'm always on the lookout for gemstone, exotic and domestic woods, sheath material and exotic skins, knife blade, stand, and knife case material. From time to time, I try to come up with new and exciting items for use in my projects, and available for use in custom knives for my clients. Some materials are more conventional, but all are beautiful and interesting in their own way. That is one of the most exciting things about this career, and I love to share my fascination of these materials with my clients and knife aficionados.

If you have or know of sources for rare and exotic materials, either domestic or imported, please don't hesitate to contact me! I've been known to trade money toward knives and art projects for a client's investment of unique materials, sometimes complete knives can be trade for really special stuff.

I'll update this list when I receive new materials, but that doesn't guarantee that I'll have enough for every particular request. Just like with the rest of my material supply and inventory, we'll have to go on a case by case basis.

Some of the materials have pictures available of either similar pieces of the same type of material, or the material itself. They are linked in blue to those pictures. Of course, if the material is already on a finished knife, the new bulk material may vary in appearance.

These are by no means the complete inventory of what I have available, just the latest in acquisitions. I literally have hundreds of gemstone, wood, and metallic materials on hand ready for custom and inventory projects. Please do contact me if you want more information on using any of these or any other materials for your custom knife projects you would like me to create for you!
