Was The Knife Crockett’s? I enjoyed part three of “The Sea of Mud Knife” by James. L. Batson in the May BLADE® very much. I am a part-time knifemaker living in Hollywood, California. I am very interested in antique bowie knives.As for whether or not the Sea of Mud Knife belonged to Davy Crockett: My thought is that James Black made the knife and gave it to Crockett because Davy was a celebrity. Or, you could say men of quality recognize men of quality. Meanwhile, the knife subsequently was taken as a souvenir by a Mexican soldier, who discarded it at the Sea of Mud, not realizing the knife’s true value. This seems to me to be the simplest explanation.Thanks again for the article, and the others Mr. Batson…

cover story

The Liberator by Kevin Klein has a 9-inch damascus blade of 15N20 and 1084 carbon steels. The handle is African blackwood with a wrought iron spine and liners, and old-school-inspired filework. Overall length: 14 inches.The showcase aspect of Kevin’s fighter for this issue are the mokume bolsters. He made them using two different shibuichi alloys, 18k gold and copper. The front collar also is shibuichi.Kevin fashioned the accompanying sheath from cowhide leather, fish skin leather, copper, damascus, mokume and forged wrought iron. He made the latter three materials to the thickness needed for the spine and liners. His list price for the knife and sheath: $5,500.He shows you how to make mokume on page 12.

hall in the family

As these words are written, sitting members of the BLADE Magazine Cutlery Hall Of Fame® are making their nominations for who will be inducted into the Cutlery Hall Of Fame during BLADE Show 2019 June 7-9 at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta. When you read these words those nominations will have been completed and the final balloting will be under way.The entire process rekindles fond memories for this writer, most of which involve the Hall Of Fame ceremony itself that annually occurs during the BLADE Magazine Awards Reception the Saturday night of the BLADE Show.The first such ceremony that stood out for me was in 1988 when A.G. Russell and Ken Warner inducted each other—with neither knowing at the time the other would be inducted as well!…

the 22-step mokume method

Layer by layer we create our lives and selectively—or not—bring forward and leave behind aspects of our past. What we leave exposed is frequently what we are judged on, and it sculpts the image people see when they look our way.Pronounced “moe-ka-may ga-nay,” mokume-gane—or mokume as it is more commonly known—is all about layering as well. For me it’s simply another component of my work, but within itself it’s about color and pattern. In short, you stack a variety of different metals, bond them together, forge them down, pattern the material by cutting then forging, or forging then cutting, and expose the various colors that lie beneath. Sounds pretty simple and much like damascus. Neither is true. I do find mokume a bit more difficult and less forgiving. However,…

the knife i carry

“My carry knife is the CRKT Folding Razel. I love that it has a second locking feature easily operated by my thumb. It has partial serrations as well. I’ve used it for scraping paint, cutting rope and as a flathead screwdriver.”Bret Nystrom, Woodstock, Illinois “I carry a Case Mako lockback. It cuts a bunch, but most of all I like the look of the upswept bolsters, especially the back one.”John Starr, a letter via e-mail “My EDC knife is a Zero Tolerance 0470 flipper designed by Dmitry Sinkevich. The CPM 20CV steel holds an edge and the humpback handle fits my palm like a glove full of grease.” Mason McAllister, a letter via e-mail For the latest knives, knife news, trends and more visit …
