fixed blade knives
Once upon a time I hand ground each and every blade. This makes for an expensive knife. So in order to make a superior knife at a reasonable price, I developed a network of vendors in Europe capable of machine grinding blanks I make in my shop. Most – but not all – of the fixed blades I sell are machine ground, however an awful lot of old fashioned handwork still goes into every knife.
Because Using Knives are what I like best, I developed a new category of fixed blade I call Crossover Knives which are as at home in the kitchen as they are on the belt for hiking, hunting or camping. Four current models are crossover designs: the Mytuko Cobalt, Mytuko Mini Cobalt and Steakout! plus the newest model, the Ryback Bushtetra. All go where you go and do what you need a knife to do.
The Ryback™ Series large kitchen knives are some of the finest examples of kitchen cutlery you can find, all at prices that remain affordable.
For military or field operations I designed the Basic Field Knife while The Thorn Series has been in constant development for the last decade. All fixed blades in the lineup combine functional design, rational manufacturing and attention to detail to offer top quality knives for daily use and enjoyment.

Here are my two newest fixed blades: Say "Hi" to the Mytuko Cobalt (top) and the Mini Thorn Nova! The Mytuko Cobalt has a 105mm thinnly ground cutting edge for smooth cutting in the kitchen or in the field. The Nova is the ideal EDC fixed blade, lightweight and ground from Elamx stainless.
The Steakout! is a versitile fixed blade that is up to any steak you throw at it. Viktor Baerwald here in Germany makes an excellent slip sheath to let you carry these knives wherever you'd like to take 'em.
The Ryback Series 2 kitchen knife is the flagship of my kitchen lineup. The stainless steel version shown is sold out. I do have a few of the Carbon Edition and Damascus versions in stock.
I've done Mytuko Minis with a variety of grips. These are machined from solid Titanium and have a bronze flame anodized finish. Each Mytuko Mini now includes a hand braided lanyard free of charge.
The Mini Thorn Tactical is another versatile design I offer with a variety of grips scales – here we see ranger Green G10. This model is almost sold out.
The Ryback Bushtetra is the newest model in the Crossover lineup. The blade is 137mm of Becut Niobium / Vanadium Stainless at HRC 59. Grips are offered machined from several different materials.
The HTevolution is robust fixed blade machine ground from 1.2379 (D2) tool steel. Only a few knives remain, all with black Micarta grips as shown.
All Basic Field Knives now ship with a made in USA Spec-ops Combat Master Mini Sheath as standard.
