your real vote is with your money
riffmachete uses an antiquated forgotten method of etching taught to him by a old man, long dead.
The method is very labour intensive and moreover more of an art than science but in this unpredictability allows more creativity and freedom as well as a personal impromtu quality of which riff machete makes beautiful use.
Not aversed to working in any particular steel although riffmachete prefers stainless (Something about knowing that what he is making has the potential to last a thousand years.)
riffmachete always makes full tang blades without exception, aiming for battlestrength tools. working with modern plastics
like IR acrylic, rubber and kydex as well as beautiful exotic hardwoods and repurposed materials.
Trained to professionally sharpen (or polish) blades by a japanese master katana maker whose family have been making blades for four generations.
All of riffmachete knives come with a professional live edge straight out the box.
The heat treatment riffmachete blades all go though is performed by a professional industrial cryogenic heat treatment facility that uses computer controlled vacuum furnaces, cryogenic processing and digital tempering ovens.
Resulting in ultra low distortion and near zero oxidisation and obtaining the absolute maximum from the steel.
