I employ the stock removal method. My choices are ATS34 stainless steel and now CPM154 . Heat treating is done at Buck Knives in Post Falls, Idaho by the country’s best, Paul Bos. My Damascus knives are of Jim Ferguson’s Twisted Nickel in a variety of patterns. My patterns range from boots to bowies and recently I have added 8 new kitchen patterns a small fighter and skinner to the line up. In the late 90’s, I constructed many liner lock folders including a limited edition of 26 knives, a small gents folder called Lil’ Red for a knife dealer in Oklahoma.

Each Orton knife is completely handmade. One at a time. And they come with a certificate of authenticity.

I hope to meet you all at a knife show soon!
