have a new place where people who know Dons Knives can Blog us.
So BLOG away
Dons Knives is (as
you can see) going through a major rebirth. I wanted a
professional website that reflected my views as a blade smith. My
goal is to show my work and give people viewing www.donsknives.com
an understanding of the "eye" involved in creating a
knife from a chunk of metal. It truly is an fine art that
produces something practical and really timeless. So
please look around and enjoy but keep in mind that new pieces
are constantly being added, so come back soon to see even more,
you don't want to miss the one that's meant for you!
Hello,my name is Don Bishop, a bladesmith out of Tallahassee Florida.
I began learning to
make knives in 2000 under the wise tutelage of a master bladesmith Edgar
Chattin, originally from Tampa Florida, currently residing in Wakulla
Country outside of Tallahassee, who has forged beautiful hand crafted
work for over 30 years, and I've been hammering away since!.
If you want to see the area, go to Google Maps (
www.google.com ) and enter "Wakulla County, Florida" in
your search. This will shown you where I learned my bladesmith skills.
Dons Knives uses PAYPAL as a vehicle for me to
use in transferring funds for payment for my knives. You do not
have to have a Paypal account to use this service. When you click
a "buy button" you will be bought to a Paypal logon
screen. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A PAYPAL ACCOUNT, just look at the
bottom right of the screen you will see, "Don't have
a PayPal account?" Go here for non Paypal members
I specialize in high carbon steels, forging blades from high carbon coil and leaf springs, saw blades, steel files, wood and horseshoe
rasps, and high carbon railroad spikes.
These are some of the types of knives I create:
Railroad Spike knives
High Carbon knives
I can create anything you can
Each blade is forged by my hand and tempered correctly to hold a super edge. I put a shaving edge on my knives when I finish
them, they take a little getting used to, please be very careful.
I can be contacted currently at firstname.lastname@example.org
or at (850)-942-6903 for information or more detailed photos of
currently available knives. Please enjoy touring my website and my
work! I work very hard to make a quality product that is attractive
enough to show off or put in a case, but is made to be used and
enjoyed. I hope to see you soon!

For each of my knives I make a custom fitted sheath of high quality vegetable tanned leather, hand stitched or riveted with brass or nickel silver rivets, and I receive many orders from
customers who have knives that lack a good sturdy sheath.
I also make custom fitted holsters for your favorite handguns, made from the same quality oak tanned leather that will fit your pistol like a glove. Several styles of both sheaths and holsters available.
