Ed Storch from Storch Knives has been a prominent figure in the knife making world for 50 years.
For me, knives are tools and are all about the edge. I view my knives as an investment in the future and a legacy to be passed from one generation to the next.
All cutlery and knives I create are designed and created with edge retention being the most important feature. In my experience I have found salt heat treating yields the best edge retention so I use this method on all of my knives.
Every Storch Knife is a hand-made tool of exacting workmanship. I stand behind my work and test each blade for edge geometry and edge holding ability. All knives are then meticulously sharpened according to their intended use. To create my knives I prefer to use tools of my own making. I frequently use custom made grinders, a custom hydraulic press and a one of a kind air hammer.

Mark Landry-Doran from Raven Custom Knives made his first knife at a course taught by Ed Storch over 10 years ago. After taking a few more courses and several years later, he decided to get 'serious' and began the long process of converting his wife's garage into a knife shop and accumulating materials and equipment that make his work unique and as safe as possible. His talents include making in house Damascus, folding blades, kitchen, fishing, and hunting knives. Mark makes regular trips to visit other knife makers shops, attend hammer-ins, and attend a Master Smith led knife making or related class at least once per year. Mark hopes to help strengthen the Canadian knife making community in the same way so our knowledge is combined, shared, and passed on so we all get better. More info about Raven Custom Knives here:

Not the actual tool in picture.
We have a set of reaming files for handle making for partial tang knives. I will get the supplier ASAP. Imagine a mini saw that you use to widen and deepen the tang hole on your handle.
