WHAT IRON-CUTTER CAN DO FOR YOU
Iron-Cutter customizes old forged blades and other steel work just as you want or need.
We can also help you with repairs.
First we use charcoal briquets and a custom-made forge to forge your custom cutting instrument.
This keeps temperatures even and gives the Forger a feel for perfect
temperature to design your personalized blade.
150 lb. cast iron anvil produced just after 1865 gives a surface large enough to produce blades up
to 28 inches in length. Each knife is hardened by an oil bath.
It is checked for hardness and flexibility.
The instrument is hand shaved by a file across the surface to take out the rough areas
that may happen during the forging process.
Depending on your preference, we will file down as specified
or polish it to a bright
Our handles are natural based hard woods.
We have a supplier that supplies us with hard woods such as cedar, aged over 50 years.
Composites such as carbon fiber or G-10 handles are available as well as mammoth tooth
(must be paid for prior to ordering mammoth molars).
Your choice of steel and properties can be discussed in detail with your forger.
We make sure you get quality out of your custom edged instrument of your choice.
Your assigned Forger will directly contact you for information to custom build your edged instrument. Personal contact insures your Blade Smith and you are on the same page.
All you need to do is contact Iron-Cutter via phone or email to customize your forged blade needs.
