Japanese Santoku

These must be the sharpest blades ever. These Santokus have a 18cm blade, stainless steel 19C27 core with 45 layers of stainless damascus steel hardened to HRC60. Upper part of blade is traditional Japanese hand hammered "Tsuchime" which helps separate food when cut.

Numero 1

Handle in striped Ebony, orange G10 & buffalo horn.

Numero 2

Handle in Grenadill & a Snakewood.

 If you need to cook "on location", impress your friends with this leather pouch. Topnotch vegetable tanned Spanish leather from Toledo, handpicked by me...

If you are interested in one of these Santoku knives, contact me (dimi.t.dfd@gmail.com).

Tactical Kydex sheath

I just finished a kydex sheath for a member of the Belgian army. The knife is a Ontario Ranger "Afghan". A impressive heavy-duty working knife.  As it came with a very crappy sheath he needed a new one made to last...

To top it off, I could not resist regrinding the factory edge to a "studioblade" edge.
 S.H.A.R.P. !!!

New design

I have made a few adjustments on the Boker Vox Rold sheath. It's easier to draw now & better balanced.
You can attach a Fallkniven DC3 sharpening stone.

Made with the finest vegetable tanned Spanish leather & treated with my selfmade Carnauba/Beeswax/Lanoline mix these are built to last...

Machete TLC


I owed a friend a favor. I found this neglected machete in his basement and decided the poor thing needed some TLC.
So I removed the rust, sharpened the edge, buffed it and grinded the handle until she felt like a machete again. I did not mirror polish her because that would be overkill.
I firmly believe she's ready to star in the sequel of MACHETE! Guitarists pay a lot of money for a "relic guitar". If only "relic machetes" would be hip & cool...
