Custom Knives by Daniel Fronefield

I have recently moved to beautiful Colorado, and I will not be able to take orders until
late 2008.  I apologize to all my loyal customers. Dan
 
 

Twilight


I have specialized in the most unusual and, in my opinion, the most awe inspiring materials to be used in my creations.  These knives feature polished sections of meteorites….the oldest materials to be found on earth.

Each “Twilight” is meticulously handcrafted and features a hand forged meteorite damascus steel blade.  The customized blade  includes iron meteorite forged into the steel.  Each handle, of anodized titanium, has both iron and stone meteorite inlayed into it, displaying the awesome Widmanstatten pattern found only in meteorites.  The dark matrix of the stony meteorite is flecked with nickel-iron, like stars in the sky.  Pallasites, the third class of meteorite, is the rarest of space gems and has been artfully inlayed into the spine of the folder.  The blade and liners are fully fileworked.

"Twilight"   -   Priced at $1825


Nowhere else will you find cutlery adorned with all three classes of meteorite, making these creations absolutely unique.  Each handcrafted knife includes meteoritic material estimated to be 4.5 Billion years old…..formed during the birth of our solar system.   Meteorites are more rare than any other material on earth and in many cases the total known weight of a meteorite can be much less than a kilogram.  A few meteorites contain “star dust,” ejected from super novas billions of years before our solar system formed.  Some contain amino acids, the building blocks of life while others may even include evidence of life on Mars.   This is truly an incomparable opportunity to own a fragment of space, crafted to please the eye and hand.
