I am very excited to feature this new Maker. I discovered Joshua on Instagram where he has a HUGE following and 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!

Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a Dealer for Joshua Gallardo
After inspecting his work, I knew immediately why Gallardo Knives Sells Out so quickly!
This is Gallardo Knives Custom Sturgeon Model ~ an Elegant EDC or Field & Stream Knife for those that appreciate the Precision Fit & Finish of a True Hand Made knife.
- AEBL High Carbon Steel / 62 Rc
- Professional Heat Treat / Cryogenic Quench
- Dual Satin Blade Finish
- Richlite scales with Natural & Black Micarta spacers
- Full Tang / .125 Thick
- Full Grip Handle / Fills the Palm
- Deep Finger Guard
- Custom Molded Leather Pocket Sheath
This knife was Hand Crafted with a very Comfortable, Full Grip Handle, the Handle Scales that together so precisely that you cannot even feel the seams!
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 Full Height Hollow Ground Blade has one of the most Crisp and Concise Grinds that I have seen. The Top Swedge is also Hollow Ground, which would allow it to do double duty as a Fuller! This is a blade that will handle any daily cutting chore but also would make a wonderful Field knife for Small Game or Stream side cutting.
Joshua chose some Beautiful Richlite for the handle Handle Scales and then he added Custom Natural Micarta Liners and Black Spacers. The Oversized Lanyard hole is also Lined with Natural Micarta. This knife would make an Excellent Field Blade or Upscale EDC!
This knife comes in a Matching Custom Leather Sheath also made by Joshua
It has a Metal Pocket Clip ~ able to be carried in the Front Right Pocket or on the left Hand Side over the Pants.
Add a Custom Embroidered Padded Zipper Case for Proper Storage ~ HERE
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.”
We are going to see INCREDIBLE things from this new Maker and I am glad to be in on the ground floor of his career.
