Our knives are made by hand using the
stock-removal method. All
of our blades are flat ground. We use the flat grind because we feel it
makes for a lighter, more durable blade. The flat grind can be adapted
to virtually all blade styles as well.
The standard finish of a Jones Knife is a hand rub. The hand-rubbed finish gives the knife an attractive look. This finish takes a little longer to do than most other finishes but we feel that since you are buying a hand made knife it should look hand made. We also offer a Boron Carbide coating on some of our models.
Our steels of choice are ATS-34 and D2. Steels such as S60v, S90v, and BG-42 may be used as well. We can also work with damascus steel. Handles can be made using micarta, stag (depending on availability), and natural hardwoods. Other handle materials may also be used. Guards and bolsters can be made from brass, nickel silver, stainless steel, and other materials such as titanium. Non-standard materials may extend the delivery time. There will also be an additional charge for non-standard materials.
The most important part of making a knife is the proper heat treatment of the steel. This process is adjusted to suit the type of steel and the intended use of the knife. Every blade that we make is carefully heat treated by Paul Bos of El Cajon, California. Paul is the best in the business when it comes to heat treating knife blades. We wouldn't trust anyone else to handle this procedure for us.
We provide a top quality sheath with each of our fixed-blade knives. A hand-sewn leather sheath is supplied with our hunters and bowies.
All of our tactical models come with a kydex sheath made by Frank Sigman of Edgeguard Tactical Carry Systems. (www.edgeguardsheaths.com)
