 I discovered Joshua on Instagram where he has a HUGE following and I was really impressed with the distinctive look of his work.  While in college, Joshua stumbled on a video of Murray Carter Forging a knife and over time he decided to build his own Shop.  After going Full Time in 2018, Joshua quickly developed a loyal following for his Precision Fit & Finish, Incredibly Crisp Grinds and elegant styling.  He does not use any CNC or Computer Equipment and creates his knives One at a Time, all within his own Shop.  Joshua’s Knives usually sell out on IG in Minutes!

After inspecting his work, I knew immediately why Gallardo Knives Sells Out so quickly!   

This is Gallardo Knives Custom Pocket Cleaver Model ~ an Elegant EDC Knife for those that appreciate the Precision Fit & Finish of a True Hand Made knife.

This knife was Hand Crafted with a very Comfortable, Full Grip Handle, the Handle Material is an incredible set of Stabilized and Highly Figured Hawaiian Koa Wood that has incredible Chatoyance when rotated back and forth in the light. Joshua chose to set the handle material off with with Dramatic White G-10 and Natural Micarta Liners.   

Hand Crafted from Uddeholm AEBL which is known for having a Very Fine Carbide structure and excellent Performance at Higher Hardness and also has the Perk of High Stain Resistance.  The Near Full Height Hollow Ground Blade has one of the most Crisp and Concise Grinds that I have seen.   This is a blade that will handle any daily cutting chore but also would make a wonderful Field knife or Kitchen Prep blade. 

The Handle Scales have complimentary Copper Blind Bolts and a Copper Lined Lanyard hole.  Incredible Fit & Finish from front to back. 

  This knife comes in a Matching Custom Leather Pocket or Over the Pants Sheath also made by Joshua

It has a Metal Pocket Clip ~ able to be carried in the Front Left Pocket or on the Right Hand Side over the Pants or Belt.

Joshua’s Philosophy is ~ “In my opinion a knife is a tool first and foremost and that ideology is the foundation for every design I develop. However, my goal in every blade I make is to produce a product that exceeds my customers expectations. Whether it is the fit and finish, the unique materials, or simply the curves and lines of each model, I do my best to create something that is much more than just a tool.” 

Joshua does INCREDIBLE work ~ he no longer takes Orders and offers very few knives each Month
