Looking at your knives they have a pocket friendly appearance and a style that looks like you enjoy making them. I find myself wondering how they would feel in my hand?

Thanks for sharing
Ed

thanks a lot Ed!

They feel good Wink, you should try it by yourself! the curve handle is even more confortable in your hands that a straight folding knife sinec it shapes to your fist once closed.

Good day guys and blade lovers!

How you doing? I hope this little post finds you well and everything is good. Tomorrow itís a big national holiday on Spain but I am not pretty sure about other countries, anyway, have a really good day 😊.

This post is just to introduce you two of my newest folding knives:

The first one is a sailing/rigging folding knife made on a beautiful walnut wood handle, itís the first time I make a sailing folding knife and I shouldnít say it since itís one my creations but I think it looks good so far.

The second one is a vendetta corso folding knife with a tanto point and ram horn handle (in fact itís mouflon but not everyone knows it), I donít know why but most of my customer wants them. As a customer recently said me ďit has the vibe since itís not a common thingĒ.

Also, let me use this post to thanks everyone for being so supportive, bear with me guys, I would be nothing without you.

Here are some quick links to both of them:

P.S: For those who are interesting on knowing more about the Spanish folding knives typology and where it comes from (spoiler alert, XV century) I made a blog area on my website where I will be posting folding knives stories and typologies. I would love you to join in and discuss about everything you find interesting or even proposing me new topics for future updates!


I have attached the portrait image of my first post, and hereís how to access it:

Dear Ed,

Sorry for reviving this dead post but I didn't notice that you answered me back on the day!

Well, since it's a folding knife for regular usage with only 2,5 mm (0,1") thick I tend to test them with a regular cutting performance of paper, card box, a tiny rope, etc. If I want to make a harder test I have a kind of moldelling clay which hard as a rock. If my folding knives can cut throught it without a scratch, they are good to go.

Welcome to KTO Jose, your work is refreshing to my eyes. Obviously you have used them to come up with your designs.  What steel do you use and do you do your own heat treating?

I greatly look forward to sharing thoughts about knives with you.

Hi Ed! thanks a lot mate!

I use 440 and ACX38 steel for my inox blades, but I also use XC75 for my carbon blades. But recently I have contacted my local Takefu supplier and I think I will be making damasteel, damascus and VG-10 folding knives soon! I have always liked the idea of combining something classic with an exotic touch!

Regarding the heat treating, yea, I do it on my own forge Wink

Good day guys,

My name is Josť Herreros from Spain, on the first place let me thank you guys for letting me be part of your community! I will try to be an active member of your community!

As the titles says I come from Spain. I own a website that can be access from www.artesaniaherreros.es/en/. I did my best translating it but apologizes for the mistakes you are about to read.
I have been crafting folding knives from more than 40 years, now that I am about to retire I would like to show the rest of the world my creation.

Unfortunately, the new technologies are not my thing, I made a three-month course and my kids are helping me with the photos, website, etc. I have no photos of my old and fancy creations that's why I am starting with really basic folding knives, I will try to have my website updated from time to time.

Thanks a lot for giving me the opportunity to join the forum guys, I will try to help and answer everything I could from my experience,
P.S: let me show you a glimpse of my work, I have attached a few images of it.

Best regards,












Josť
