Fine Art Medium: Handcrafted Knives
Art on the Cutting Edge
Sam Harris, a retired commercial arline pilot, designs and creates various types of knives, including hunting knives, folding knives, kitchen knives, and carving sets. He also creates beautiful letter openers and key chains. Sam started making knives at a young age, inspired by the knives used in his family’s meat market. The blades are made of stainless steel, and Sam uses dropped deer antlers, exotic hardwoods, and semi-precious stones such as turquoise, garnet, lapis, jasper, and mother-of-pearl in creating his knife handles. He also fashions leather sheaths for some knives, and customizes some of the blades with decorative notching. Sam is available for custom work for special needs. Sam’s knives are true works of art, but are meant to be used, as well as admired for their beauty.
