My name is Mark Hoffmann, I hope you enjoy this web page and the custom knife photo's.
I started making knives around 1995 and find it both fun and rewarding. I'm a part-time knife maker using the stock removal
method. The primary steel I use is 440C stainless steel and Damasteel stainless steel demascus. I make both fixed blade and
folders, with folders being the most rewarding to make.
For handles I like to use Mother of Pearl, India stag,
Mammoth Ivory and Buffalo horn. Stabilized wood and Micarta work well also. Titanium is used for liners in the folders and
makes a nice contrast when anodized to color. I also do my own heat treating as well.
This web page building thing
is new to me. I will try to update and improve the site in the future.
