As the title suggests these are original SH9 Forged creations. They reflect our founders’ view of how moving hot steel and blade geometry come together. Each piece is unique and reflects our idiosyncratic view of the tradecraft. This piece was commissioned for a dear friend and artist by trade Nitzan Lilie. Nitzan is the creator of the amazing forged hammers that you see in many of our photographs that are not only gorgeous but functional in every sense of the word.

  • 7 3/8”OAL 4” blade 2 3/8” wide

  • G11 Handle

NO DIMENSIONAL THICKNESS ON THE FORGED, but they all carry the SH9 heavy blade style.

5160 steel is exceptionally tough and resilient. It sports a high level of resistance to fatigue, has high ductility, and has good spring qualities useful for applications where flexibility is desired.  Typically referred to as a "spring steel”, it through hardens and has very good edge retention. If ductility, toughness and resilience are desired, 5160 is a solid choice. It will flash rust/patina easily, care for it as you would a firearm and you will be very happy with it. 



NEVER put a custom knife in a dishwasher. You will be horribly disappointed with the result

    • S35vn and AEB-L are both high carbon stainless steels. As such both perform well as stainless, but any steel will rust or stain without proper care

    • Hand-wash and dry after use, if storing for a long period, lubricate using anything food-safe if it’s a kitchen or food knife, or any oil if not used on food

    • OR any other high carbon non-stainless steel. Care for it as you would a firearm and you’ll likely never have an issue. High-acidity foods will stain these steels to varying degrees, this is normal, doesn’t present health issues and doesn’t harm the blade. The patina they develop is similar to well-aged cast iron, enjoy the process.
