BLACKSMITH INTRO – Trained at my father’s knee, I have been working with wood for what seems like my whole life. After inheriting his shop equipment, I am continuing in his footsteps of handcrafted work. My knives are made here in the states (New Jersey, to be specific), in the same workshop I grew up in.
STEEL BREAKDOWN – Josh uses high carbon steel (1084 & 15N20) to forge his Damascus, which is then etched with chemicals to give it’s stark contrast. These will patina and develop rust spots if left wet and not wiped down after use.
