Cool New Knives from Bob Alderman

I have gotten to know a local knife-maker Bob Alderman, and the conversations we have had, including my friend Aaron, have led to Bob making some stuff that is new too him, but right up my alley.

He recently built a Bushcrafter, and it is available in 1/8th inch, for those who like thin knives.

I borrowed his image....

And his leather is pretty gnarly. Anway, he wrote about it over at

Also, Aaron and I saw a 'trail' knife that Bob had made, and we told him we thought it was pretty cool, so this is what he came up with....

You can see images of them individually at

But the really cool part, is that the middle knife, converts to a draw knife.

Anyway, just thought I would tell you all about it.

A local bladesmith of some note....

I recently made the acquaintance of a bladesmith of some note, Bob Alderman.

His work has been featured in the major publications, and I can see why, it is museum quality.

You might want to check him out, you can do so at....

Here are images of some of his work.
