Jerry Rados has been
making knives since 1980 and Damascus steel and knives since 1984. I have
been making Damascus commercially and for myself since 1984 (I have worked
steel all my life). I believe in sole authorship in my knives and I do as
much as possible by hand by myself. The only commercial pieces in my knives
are 3 to 4 dowel pins, (folding knives) everything else is made by me. My
straight hunters and fighters are generally random pattern Damascus and are
fully hand forged by me.
