About Me

Hi, I'm Stephen Stumbo, I'm 18 yrs old, and a self taught knifesmith/blacksmith. All through my childhood I've had affinity for blades, probably starting with my first pocket knife. At 12 I tried to grind a knife out of a sawzall blade, and was so proud of how it turned out. At 14 I convinced my dad to help me make a forge so I could try blacksmithing. After building the forge I had a rough time getting started, but after meeting a local blacksmith and getting some tips, I went at it. About a year into blacksmithing (2009) I decided to try my hand at making knives. I started out terribly, but I've slowly been progressing to where you see now. Take a look around, and let me know what you think, you can also find me on facebook to keep up with the goings on around the ole smithy.

Small edc with denim micarta handle

While we're waiting for more news on that raspy camper, I'll keep ya'll entertained with this. This one is a small edc (every day carry) forged from an old file, with denim micarta I got at bowies hammer-in for handles scales. I gave it a little sheath, got it razor sharp (literally, I've shaved with it once. I like my gillete more though) and this thing is standing high! This is actually the first knife I've thought worthy of putting a price tag on. I'm not trying hard to sell it, but it is available for $55. (you know, I wouldn't be extremly dissapointed if it doesn't sell, I like it. :)
