Rather than constantly introducing new designs, I try to come up with a few good ones and keep improving and refining until I’ve taken the train to the end of the line.
My current folder lineup consists of four models: Leafstorm, Ghost Dog, Ghost Dog Pup and the Ryback EDC. Some of the other older designs may come back one day too. Others may pop up on my webshop as prototypes or just something I was fooling around with.
I produce folders sporadically and sell them from stock here on my website. Check the in stock knives page or my Facebook page to see if I have anything on hand right now. Custom orders are very time consuming and expensive, expect to pay at least €2500 for a folder made to your specs.
Some of the folders on this page are older models from the past. Nothing like looking through the old pics to bring back memories! All of the folders I’ve made are unique pieces. I’ve never made a “run” of folders that were alike, so if you do have a folder of mine, it’s one of a kind.

The Ghost Dog is the largest folder I currently make and it is a big one. I designed this folder when the German television show Galileo contacted me to film a short piece in my shop for international broadcast. I wanted a knife big enough to show up on screen. It does. They still repeat the episode every six months or so!
Here's a Leafstorm Damascus with a really nice mammoth ivory overlay. The prices on high quality mammoth ivory have gone through the roof in the last couple of years.
This a the last Parforce I made. It's designed with a nail-nick for two hand opening. This is a model I've retired – at least for now – and it goes out wearing an excellent piece of bark mammoth ivory.
The Damascus used for the overlays on this Ghost Dog Folder was made by Markus Balbach from steel salvaged from the sunken wreck of the battleship Tirpitz.
Both grip overlays and blade are made from the same piece of Damascus, heat treated and etched. I love the grey-on-grey look of this Ghost Dog Pup.
Here's a look back at a discontinued model I call the Avalon. The grips are machined from 6082 Alu with an inlayed titanium lockbar. Blades were usually BG-42 or CPM S30V. Fitting the lockbar to the blade was a real labor-intensive operation...
How many hours did it take me to one of these custom Ryback Folding Kitchen Knives? I don't wanna think about it! The knives are really cool scary monsters though. I've toyed with the idea of bringing these back as a lock back.
This Ryback EDC Folder has a M2 HSS blade with a machined grind and black TiAlN coating. This was a unique knife I did years ago and wish I had never sold. Maybe I'll crank me out another one?
