Cowboy – Bladesmith / Cutler

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.

Tour the Blacksmith Shop

Stop by the historic, 1891 Blacksmith shop, take a tour, forge your own souvenir knife or even throw a tomahawk in our lanes …and of course, don’t forge to pick up a hand-forged blade!

Hand-forged Knives

In Texas, hunting is as big in popularity as the state itself. Having the right knife on your belt is crucial and having one that’s designed exactly for you and your hand, makes the whole hunting experience that much smoother and more enjoyable.

Texas Select Event

The Texas Select Custom Cutlery Event features knifemakers from all across the US.

Hosted at the Austin County Fair Convention & Expo center in Bellville, TX (about an hour from Houston, TX), we proudly present the largest organized gathering of custom knifemakers in TEXAS.

If you are a fan of The History Channel’s internationally popular Forged in Fire show, you won’t want to miss this event.

Hand-forged Blades

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.

Hand Forged Knives

Check out a sampling of some of my hand-forged Damascus/pattern-welded knives, hunting and other knives and blades. Feel free to give me a call if you have something specific in mind.
