I love history, I am extremely fond of knives that are made to resemble the tools that Pioneers and Early Americans relied on for every day survival. This genre of knife making takes alot of research and skill with various materials to accomplish successfully and I am always excited to see a Knife Makers’ work who has gotten it just right!
Ted Taylor has been crafting knives for several years and makes everything from Bowies and Fighters to everday working knives, but in my opinion Ted does the Period style especially well. I just received several knives from Ted and I know you will really enjoy seeing his work.

Brand New ~ Just Received from the Maker
This is a Sole Authorship Custom Gaucho Knife from Ted ~ a Full Tang knife that will perform as good as it looks.
The 1095 Steel blade measures .125 Thick, it has been Differentially Heat Treated and Ted has also given it a Labor Intensive Hand Rubbed finish along with a unique Etched Patina.
This is a tough Full Tang Blade with a Custom Hand Made / Jigged Antique Micarta Handle scales.
A Late Distal Taper at the tip will allow for Finer Cutting work or assistance in puncture. This type of blade would work well in the Field or by the Stream.
The Sheath was also made by Ted, a Right Hand Cross Draw Horizontal Leather Belt sheath
This is just the one of a group of special knives I have received from Ted
