We came here in 1997 to make art. 40 acres surrounded by “crown” land. A page to introduce ourselves.

Welcome,

We make custom woodcarving tools & knives, custom hand forged survival knives and bushcraft knives, custom handmade kitchen and chef knives from high carbon lumber mill steels, spring and other auto wreck steels. We re-purpose copper, brass, wood, moose and deer antler for our handle material. All recovered from around our neighbourhood.

Since 1997 we have striven to live sustainably, growing our own food, making tools and knives, creating art, while leaving a light footprint..  With heart and soul.

Everything we make is custom to order. Please use our menu on top of the page to navigate through the site. We are powered by the sun’s energy.

The working forest in BC is 60 million hectares (149 million acres).

We considered the impact logging has had on our planet and the superb steel lumber mill saw blades are made from.

Handmade and sculpted. We use clay and glass in our hardening process trying to create images with the essence of the boreal forest while creating a very tough knife.
