Welcome to Bushblade knives
I have used and acquired many knives over the years, from a variety of brand name manufacturers. Without sufficient funds to purchase my ideal knife I decided to try and make my own, and made my first knife in 2001. The first attempts yielded functional success in replicating the now famous Woodlore knives designed by Ray Mears and at the time made by Alan Wood. I still own these knives but the quality of my work has improved somewhat since the early days.
I am a firm believer in form following function; I aim to make a functional tool that will be a pleasure to own and use for many years. The overall fit, finish and quality of work are of the utmost importance to me when making a knife. Each knife and sheath is handmade by me here in the UK, I do not currently outsource any part of the process.
I only spend a few days each week making knives as the majority of my time these days is dedicated to my twin girls.
Please take a look around, and feel free to contact me with any comments or enquiries.
