Outdoor Knives for the Outdoorsman
Ron Duncan builds knives for the true outdoorsman. Knives
built with traditional materials for traditional applications.
Yet, they are not made to average levels of craftsmanship.
No, Ron's knives are built to achieve extreme levels of performance.
For example Ron's blades are all forged, yes forged at temperatures
in excess of 1,700 degrees and subjected to extreme pressure
from a power hammer. Many believe the forged knife is superior
in all respects to knives simply cut from a block of steel
and ground to shape.
Simply forging steel does not guarantee a superior blade.
Ron is recognized as a Journeyman Smith by the American Bladesmith
Society. This title is given only to those smiths who have:
- A proven track record of quality knife making
- Can produce knives of the finest detail in fit and finish
- Can forge a blade capable of passing the rigorous ABS
test, included the ability to bend a knife blade 90 degrees
Of course no hunting knife is complete without a sheath.
All Ron's leather work is done by his talented daughter Lacey.
She can create custom sheaths for
your knives as well. Contact
Ron for more information.
You can be sure, your knife and sheath
will be a perfect match - built for years of hard use.
