The Making of Beebe Knives
What you will see here are some of what I consider to be the more important or interesting steps involved in handcrafting my 3/4 tang knives and sheaths. To watch a short video showing the basics of how we build our full tang knives, go to our Home page and scroll to the bottom of the page.
Some steps are probably common to many custom knife makers, and some may be a bit more unique to my shop. And, I acknowledge that there is often more than one way to accomplish a given task. I do what I have found works well for me with the tools that I have.
As any craftsman can attest to, methods develop and change over time, and it is important to continue learning daily. I think this is part of what keeps me engaged and interested. There’s always room to learn more and increase one’s skills.
If you can, take time and browse through these pages to get a feel for what goes into my knives. And, if you have comments or questions about any of this, please feel free to contact me for more information.
