I have been making knives by hand since 2012. Each blade is forged as close to the customers order as possible. In the forging process we allow the steel to tell us what it wants to be. All our knives are original and we do not use others designs. We use both repurposed ( leaf and coil springs)and commercially bought steel.
I am a retired firefighter who has always enjoyed creating and working with my hands. As a kid I repaired surfboards which led me to making my own. I currently Smith part time when not working or doing something with my amazing wife Julie and or my beautiful daughters.
We’re proud to share a handful of recent testimonials from our happy customers. Mohel Knives is dedicated to exceptional customer care, and will always go above and beyond to make sure you’re satisfied with our products and service. If you’ve had experience with us and have feedback, please get in touch - we’d love to hear it.

Bladesmith / Owner
Since starting Mohel Knives, I have made quite a few knives and still am humble enough to be shocked when someone wants one of my blades. I am honored to have my blades in the hands of happy customers across the country.
Mambo the shop boss
Since he was a puppy, Mambo has been by my side through the different stages I have gone through learning to forge knives.

All our knives are made to order and currently the wait time is about a month. Occasionally we have a blade I was inspired to make and will be offered for sale.
All custom orders require a 50% deposit, if steel or other materials are ordered for your knife , the deposit is non refundable.
These are some examples of past work
I am a retired Firefighter who has always had an artistic edge. Starting with drawing and commercial art in school , then making and repairing surfboards in my youth on Long Island. Bladesmithing seemed like a natural fit for an artistic release.
