Forget what you heard about dogs, knives are a man’s best friend. Given that, Scott A. Roush at Big Rock Forge is a man you want to know. Roush makes hand-carved, custom knives using the same processes that have been used by blacksmiths for countless years. So how does a Big Rock Forge Knife get made? We’ll let Scott describe it. The steel is heated in either a charcoal or propane forge, hand-hammered to shape on an anvil, hardened, tempered and then ground to finish. Every piece on the website is available to order, but he’s also open to custom orders based on your ideas, quirks, and needs from a knife. This is one weapon that will look just as good hanging on your wall as it will on your belt.
