Meet The Maker

a few past projects

French Point Ladder Pattern Damascus Straight Razor

I use a variety of materials for my razors. This razor was made from a piece of Ladder Pattern Damascus which I acquire from a steel maker in the USA. The handles are made from dyed and stabilized Box Elder with white G10 liners. All quality products in every hand made razor.

Rain Drop Damascus Skinner

Along with hand made straight razors, I also make knives. With my knives I also use a variety of blade materials (01, D2, and Damascus) This is a hunting knife made for skinning. On the larger side but the customer is a larger gentleman. The blade is Rain Drop Damascus, handles are Cocobolo with white G10 spacer and liners and segmented with white G10 and carbon fiber. I also made the shealth for this knife.

Hand Forged Santoku Chef Knife

Over the past couple years I have been working hard to refine my black smithing skills. This is a long road to travel. I am now adding chef knives to my list of items that I am offering. These knives are Brute de Forge and I am making full and hidden tang knives. I will be updating my inventory as new knives are ready for sale.

Customer testimonials

Service and communication was extremely swift, courteous and professional.

Hey Rob, I bought this amazing Razor for my husband for christmas and he loves it! Beautiful workmanship, he said it shaves effortlessly due to the weight and how sharp the Razor is. The quality of your work is outstanding. It more than put a smile on both of our faces! My husband wanted to leave a review, but he couldn't, so I am doing it for him. Please keep making these works of art. Also, thank you for the quick responses about the postage to the UK. Kind regards Hannah/Neil Brown

Valentini has created a new toy. His Bull Nose Straight Razor. Like all of his work, the workmanship is above reproach. The artistry and craftsmanship are in balance to produce an excellent product. It is a little heavier than the regular razors you get from him, but some of us like heavy. Properly sharpened this instrument delivers a shave that is second to none. Valentini has started developing cases for his razors. The two together are an artistic symphony of craftmanship that leaves the competition in the dust. Excellent work. J. Green
