About Paul Savage:
Paul is not just a craftsman; he is an avid outdoor sportsman with a profound love for hunting and fishing, particularly bowhunting for whitetail deer. His deep connection with the outdoors fuels his commitment to creating knives that are not only functional but also a companion in every adventure. His involvement as a committee member of the National Wild Turkey Federation – Boss Gobblers of Brant/Oxford Chapter, further showcases his dedication to the outdoors and wildlife.
Paul’s knives are a testament to meticulous craftsmanship. They are hand-ground and hand-sanded, using both stock removal and forging methods, ensuring each blade meets the highest standards. The blades are heat-treated to 58-60 rc, and Paul employs a variety of exotic hardwoods, bone, horn, and antler for the handles, with Curly Maple being his personal favorite. Every knife case is crafted with utmost precision, using the finest vegetable-tanned leather, and can be embellished with hand tooling or snake skin inlays.
Paul specializes in producing a diverse range of knives including hunting, fishing, Bowie, utility, and chef knives. He works with premium materials such as 440c, S30V, and S60V stainless steels, D2 high carbon high chrome steel, and forges 5160, 1095, and 01/L6 Damascus carbon steels.
