Bloodroot Blades

Mon Apr 22, 2013 4:59 pm

I stumbled across these dudes last night. Apparently they had a blurb in Southern Living about them recently.

http://www.bloodrootblades.com/

They seem to be big on the "upcycling" thing. It looks like they use a lot of reclaimed tool steel ( old sawmill blades etc) for forging their blades. They also do a super cool laminate handle made from old coffee sacks.

I'd like to try some of their knives. Budget presently prevents that, though.

Just thought I'd share with y'all since they're 100 miles from my house and I've never heard of them until now.

Luke's knives are worth every penny. This is an integral bolster petty made from a coil spring.

Cool looking knife.

If you guys know this maker I would be happy to give him a sub forum on our forum here. I want to support these custom makers even if I don't sell their knives. Let him know it would be free...

They are making some great looking blades and initial reviews are very positive. I love that they try to use recycled materials and made in the US is a pro in my book. Would like to see them here as well.

We chatted a little by PM and I set up a free subforum for them. I love their website. Really informative and it tells their story well with nice photos.
