“Him and his father invented putting a carbon steel core with stainless around it,” explains Kent of Teruyasu’s process.

“It’s a bit technical but there are a lot of knife makers following that.” “In fact, I think it’s the smartest way to build a knife.” Kent’s persistence paid off and customers at the Inglewood store lined up to for an opportunity to meet the craftsman and have him engrave their knives.

All materials and tools will be provided as well as take home info on basic knife making techniques and helpful information.

The Knife we will be making is a 1/8" thick, 3 1/2" long blade, 7" overall length high carbon drop point hunter with a flat grind and wood or micarta handle.

Lunch and further educational reading materials will be provided.
