Not all the cutting takes place in some dirty field somewhere. Sometimes you have to bring the fight to the kitchen. Cucumbers, steak, garlic, potatoes...it all needs some blade work, and this is the one you'll want to turn to. A hearty walnut wood handle gives way to 8 inches of beautiful twist pattern Damascus steel, tapering from a 3.5mm spine to a wicked sharp edge. It hearkens to a knife passed down from through the generations. The thicker blade is designed to tackle your meats, not your dainty sushi.
Damascus is 7x7 with 5 folds (448 layers).
We can easily engrave the handle with our new two pin handles! Just put what you'd like engraved and the font type in the notes when you purchase.
Disclaimer: This is a knife. It's sharp. Make sure what you're cutting is food, not fingers. Unless it's some chicken fingers. Tear them up! You assume all responsibility for safe use upon receipt.
Damascus pattern and wood grain will vary.
1095 high carbon and Damascus Steel are great at holding an edge, but will rust and stain if not taken care of properly. Please clean and dry your blade after use, and apply a light coat of oil (gun oil, coconut oil, canola...almost any clear oil) in order to protect the blade and add longevity.

Just an all around perfect experience with Travis/AIM - the knife was beautiful and the sheath super well made. It was the gift winner of our xmas morning, and my cousin who received the knife loved it! Also, it feels great to support a maker like AIM blades because they support you back with excellent customer service and communication. Will 1000% be back! Thanks Travis!

Frequently Asked Questions
Custom and personalized orders
Of course! That's what this is shop is all about. Polished blades are great for adding beautiful etching, and the wood handles can be engraved with anything from initials to a hand written signature, a corporate logo to your kid's drawing of, uh, an alien? person? Three legged hedgehog? Whatever it is, we can likely engrave it! Keep in mind the size a handle is, which limits the size and detail.
Here's the breakdown of basic customization:
Engrave one side: $15. No set up fee or by the letter fee.
Engrave two sides: +$10 ($25 total)
Etching: Varies by complexity, but usually about $25.
Think big. Send me a message with your thoughts! I'll discount for big orders like weddings. I know money is tight!
1095 high carbon and damascus steel will hold an edge very well, but they are not stainless steel. It may take on color with lots of use, and should be dried and oiled, if possible, to prevent rust. If you do get some rust, I prefer giving it a quick rub with a very fine (000) steel wool and it usually easily takes care of it without scratching the metal.
I wouldn't go chipping away at rocks, but they're pretty tough and should last you a long time!
Corporate Gifts or Awards
These are usually orders of 15+. We can do almost any amount given enough time.
You can engrave names or logos on the handles. You can replace my AIM logo with your own etched into the blade, or we can make a custom metal stamp of your logo for the leather sheaths.
Just remember, these are custom made and hand crafted, so we need months, not weeks. The more customized, the more time we need! They look ridiculously awesome, so bring it on!

Custom and personalized orders
Yes. Oh, you want more? Just send me a note to discuss!
-Engraving goes on the wood handles, and possibly the leather sheaths. It's a laser engraver, so burning the image in. I can fill it with color on the handles, but not the sheaths. It can do fairly detailed images, EVEN HAND DRAWN PICTURES AND WRITING. Be creative!
-Etching goes on the metal. It looks great on the polished metal, but can be hard to see on the damascus. This need to be less detailed. Think words, numbers, basic designs.
I will do full custom jobs for larger orders, including blade designs, handle materials, custom deep etched logos (instead of the AIM), custom leather stamps on the sheath, etc. Your corporate gifts can be awesome!
I'm open to the discussion. Send me a note!
