Video!

Right now, I've only got one public video. I do have many about service, function and application of the knife features, but these are for clients. Thanks for watching!

  1. Bronze Casting at Enchanted Spirits Studio with Jay Fisher, is a simple view of a small portion of making a custom knife stand in solid cast bronze. I emphasize a small portion because it's just the pouring and shakeout of the bronze casting, and not the designing, wax carving, prepping of the wax model, sprue and vent attachment, debubblizing, and investment that happens before the burnout, and it doesn't include the steps after the casting like fettling, cleanup, texturing, finishing, and patina application! But the casting is the most visually interesting part, and the reveal after the shakeout is always a treat, so that's why I chose this portion of the creative process. This video is also available on YouTube at this link.
  2. Here's a Detailed video demonstrating my modular sheath frame mount system on my Ananke khukri. It's a big knife, and the modular system takes care of a lot of wear and change issues.

Hello Jay,
I was in the early stages of searching for a quality SRK and, eventually, I ended up on jayfisher.com.
Although I spent some of my younger years as a USAF forward controller, I have to admit that I've never been much of a knife enthusiast. I really enjoyed the video on your homepage, however, so I thought I'd type a few words of appreciation. Knife enthusiast or not, the underlying message of self-sufficiency in your story really resonates with me. Please keep up the good work and, even more importantly, keep spreading the word about old-world skills, problem-solving and craftsmanship -- they're all dying concepts.
By the way, I was very pleased to see that you've dedicated some of your talent and vision to military units like the USAF PJs. I trained and worked with some of them: and they clearly deserve the recognition.
Have a good one,

--B.
