Stuart Smith Blade Puukko w/ Chakate

SS016


Features & Specs:

Stuart is a full time professional bladesmith, a member of the Southern African Knifemakers Guild, and is the current Chairman of SABA (Southern African Bladesmiths Association). He has been forging knives full time since 2004. As a big guy, he makes everything on a large scale…including the Bowie knives and the Scandinavian style blades that he loves to make.

 He hand forges all of his blades and coined the phrase “Organic Knife Making”, which is the process in which you have a particular shape and general dimension in mind, but allow the steel to flow freely and take on the natural shape as it is hand forged. This gives each blade a uniqueness during the birthing process and adds to the collectability of Stuart’s work.
