Traditional designs...

hand forged.

My X-Rhea knife .  It is my unique design of one piece forged from carbon steel knife.  This concept is inspired by things I've learned from my time as a historic blacksmith.  It's development is a fine exercise in hammer control for the smith, yet it produces a strong, beautiful and unique knife.

My name is Lin Rhea (pronounced "Ray") and I am a Master Bladesmith.  I live in Arkansas, the heart of the custom knife making world.

My knives  are hand forged in the manner of old world craftsmanship.  I do not farm out any aspect of my knives...every part is handmade by myself.

I am a member of the Antique Bowie Knife Association, American Bladesmith Society and the Custom Knives Collectors Association.
