Pat Patterson has been a knifemaker since 1991. He's a member of the American Bladesmith Society as an apprentice smith. Visiting the shop of Johnny Stout several years ago inspired him to become a knifemaker. He tries to create a high quality blade that will please and satisfy the user, and one that he would carry for himself.
He builds straight knives and folders using 440C and ATS-34 steel for blades. His grounds are hollow grind and flat grind. Handle materials include Stag, presentation grade Stabilized Woods, Fossilized Ivory, Micarta, and G-10. For more information you can call Pat at 830-234-3586 or E-mail him at email@example.com
Here's some examples of Pat's work:
Here is a fine folder for the gentleman that likes to carry a small light weight pocketknife. It has a 3" blade of ATS-34 with anodized titanium bolsters. The titanium frame is also jeweled and anodized with a fileworked back spacer. The handle scales are of fossilized Woolley Mammoth Ivory.
For a sleek, streamlined blade that can be used for hunting or fishing, this is the one. The steel used is 440C with a hand rubbed satin finish. The handle material shown is Desert Ironwood.
A folder that can be used as a working knife or carried as a dress knife. The 4" blade is of ATS-34 with anodized titanium bolsters, jeweled and anodized titanium liners with a file worked back spacer. The handle material is of fossilized Woolly Mammoth Ivory.
This knife has 416 SS bolsters with Wild Olive Burl handle material. The top of the 3 1/2" blade has fine rope filework, and mosaic pins in the handles. Steel used is 440C.
