About Cowboy

Each knife is hand forged and hand crafted as a piece of art that is also functional. Each is one of a kind varying in design, metals, and materials. I offer knives custom made to suit the client’s interests. These knives are crafted to last for generations.

Ancient legend tells of the ‘Phenix‘, a bird said to be the only one of its kind, living 500-600 years. Setting itself on fire, it rises renewed from the ashes to start another life. It is an emblem of immortality, a paragon, or item of singular distinction of beauty.  Hence, my knives are placed in the fire to be reborn into a beautiful but functional piece of art suitable to be passed down from generation to generation.

Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you enjoy looking at my knives and I look forward to hearing from you.

Cowboy — Phenix Knives
Texas Bladesmith, Forged In Fire Season 1

The old world arts have always held a special appeal to me, with knives being the forerunner of my passion. I choose to utilize this time proven old world tradition to design and craft my knives, incorporating skills from the Orient as well as European and American techniques.
