In Memory of:



Dennis Bradley

It is our deepest regret to inform you that Dennis has passed away. He was a great friend as well as a knife maker. He was the type of man who was friendly to everyone, and everyone will miss him. I am leaving this page up in memorial to him. May his wonderful wife Beverly, his children, grandchildren, extended family, and friends find peace in their hearts, and may Dennis rest in peace.



(In his words) I have been making knives since the early 70's. My metalworking background has helped me tremendously in making knives. I was a tool and die maker / mold maker before entering the teaching profession. I taught metalworking at the high school level for 30 years. I have been a member of The Knifemaker's Guild since 1988 and am also a member of the Georgia Custom Knifemaker's Guild. I am primarily a stock removal maker but like to forge some, also. My primary steel is 440C stainless but I also offer ATS 34 stainless, D2, and damascus (from a number of sources). I use a variety of methods to make knives that include flat grinding, hollow grinding, mirror polish, hand-rubbed satin finish, and a combination of these. I make full tapered tang, narrow tangs, and integral construction knives. I do my own heat treating as well as all my sheath work. I also do file work and scrimshaw. I usually have knives available for immediate delivery and can usually deliver custom orders in 6-8 months.
