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.
Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a Direct Dealer for Ted Taylor custom knives
Brand New ~ Just Received from the Maker
This is a Sole Authorship Modern Sabre Knife from Ted ~ a Full Tang knife that will perform as good as it looks.
The handle scales are Contoured Micarta with a Secondary Replaceable Cord Wrap Under carriage.
The 1095 Steel blade measures a respectable .180 Thick, it has been Differentially Heat Treated and Clay Quenched to reveal a Hamon that indicates the Hardness gradient areas. The blade has a Machine Satin finish with Antique Patina on the Flats that adds to the visual appeal.
This blade will be a great cutter or chopper.
The Sheath was also made by Ted, a Thick Right Hand Leather Belt sheath
with Leather Drop Loop Dangler for easier Carry
This is just the one of a group of special knives I have received from Ted
