The Platelet Knife pays homage to the relationship that knives and blood have shared since the very beginnings of sharp.

Starting with an experiment in pattern welding and a dynamic profile things started to take shape. Gaining those few hundred extra degrees to melt copper rather than bronze was an epic written in green flame.

The journey to stone spacer from surf tumbled local red jasper has become a familiar and meditative hike. No doubt this seemed an instant transformation to the many millions year old pebble.

A giant redwood stump sits in our driveway for sculpting. A knotty cleft has been cut away and stabilized in handle sized blocks. One of these forms the back end of the handle with the polished grain writhing and twisting in the palm.

These elements were brought together into a highly polished visceral mass. Slowly they were massaged into place with an heirloom fit up and the casting sprue becoming the domed pin, the full stop, mechanically fixing the handle to the blade.
