The knives found on this page are currently for sale at Caso’s in Okanogan, WA and Omak Feed in Omak. Custom orders can be placed at any time. With few exceptions (like the Fillet Knives which come without a sheath) each knife’s price includes both the knife and the custom sheath shown with it!
Just a point of information, no matter what handle material is used (Wood, horn, antlers, etc.) I stabilize EVERYTHING. What this means for you, the purchaser, is that the handle material will hold up to use, just like the blade, as long as you care for your knife properly! What does that mean? All blades should be kept dry and oiled when not in use. High carbon steel will rust if it is not treated this way. Handles, too, should be kept clean and dry after use, and occasionally oiled. I strongly recommend you check out the blog post at How to Care for Your Knife.
If you want to know more about the steel used in my knives, or if you are curious about Damascus, Wootz or Acid-Etched steels, check out my blog post What’s In A Name Where Blade Steel is Concerned?.
If you wish to purchase directly from the website please email me at moondogknives at outlook dot com (Sorry but trying to dodge spammers!) with the name and/or Stock Number of the knife in the subject line.
I accept PayPal, Venmo, Zelle, GooglePay and, for my Canadian customers, Interac.
Come back and visit often. I will be constantly adding new items and removing the ones that have sold. If you want to order a completely custom knife, you can start that process by reaching out to me on my Contact page.

Kitchen Cleaver 001
And now for something completely different!
A lot of people have been asking for kitchen, chef quality knives. The response to the Fillet knives was really good so… drum roll!… here is the first ever chef’s cleaver.
Mule Skinner MS002
440C Etched, OAL 7 1/2”; Blade 3” x 1 3/8” x 5/32”; Scales are Stabilized American Red Oak; copper pins.
Scout (Version 2.0) SC2.0-001
The blade on this second version of the Scout is a bit longer than the original design, hence the “2.0” designation. OAL 8-1/4″; Blade Length 3-1/2″; Blade Width 1″; Blade Thickness 5/32″; The scales are the reason this knife is a bit more expensive. You will not be able to find California Red Cedar Burl from a 1500 year old tree anywhere else! I really lucked out getting this from a woodworker friend.
The Katana KAT001
This will be a one-off so if you like it, better grab it before it’s gone!
Etched 440C (high carbon Stainless Steel); OAL 12 1/2”; Blade: 6 1/2” x 1 3/16” x 3/16”; Scales: African Black Wood, Macarta black and brass; Brass & Black Fiber Liners.
Lil’ Brute 001
Blade: San-Mai (High Carbon Center sandwiched between layers of more pliable metal ground to look like Damascus). Do not know the specifics as it was a piece given to me. With the high carbon steel core, I would suggest it be treated as a high carbon steel blade. Dimensions: 2 1/2” L x 1” W x 1/8” T, OAL 5 7/8”. You will notice I created a ridged pattern in the steel within the handle. This should offer a bit better grip. Handle: Curly Koa from Hawaii, with White Brass pins and accents.
Day Tripper 009
Blade is Acid Etched 1075 High Carbon Steel, Flat Ground 4 1/4” L, 1” W, 5/64” T; OAL 9”; Handle Material is Zebra Wood with Blue Liners and Copper pins. Hand Crafted Leather Sheath.
Filleting Knife 001
Blade: Electro-Etched Stainless Steel 7 1/2” L.; OAL is 12 ¼”. The S-wedge is sharpened! Scales are 200 year old Oak that came from a Historic Cabin restore in Tennessee. A piece 4”x6”x3’ was given to me so when that’s gone – it’s gone. There is no sheath as leather will not work for this one and I didn’t want to increase the cost by finding somebody that does “Kydex”.
Filleting Knife 002
Blade: Electro-Etched Stainless Steel 7 1/2” L.; OAL is 12 ¼”. The S-wedge is sharpened! Scales are Mesquite that came from Hawaii. There is no sheath as leather will not work for this one and I didn’t want to increase the cost by finding somebody that does “Kydex”.
Day Tripper 006
Blade is 1075 High Carbon Steel Flat Ground 4 1/4” L, 1” W, 5/64” T; OAL 9”; Handle Material is 200 year old Oak that came from a Historic Cabin Restoration in Tennessee, and American Walnut with Brass pins and Black liners. A piece of the 200 yr old Oak was given to me that was 4”x6”x3’ so when that is gone, it’s gone. This knife comes with a left-hand sheath. If buyer wants a right hand sheath I will make one at no charge. I spaced when making this one and decided to put it out there as is, but as I said, I can make a right handed one at no charge if the left hand sheath doesn’t work for you.
Day Tripper 007
Blade is 1075 High Carbon Steel Flat Ground 4 1/4” L, 1” W, 5/64” T; OAL 9”; Handle Material is Olive Wood and Mesquite Wood (from Hawaii) with Copper pins and orange liners. Hand Crafted Leather Sheath.
Mountain Man 001
This was a real labor of love! I tried to keep it simple and true to form for the time period (1700s – 1800s). The handle is a worked piece of Caribou shed I found while hiking in Kenai, Alaska and the sheath was custom made for the project by Jay Red Feather of Williams, AZ. That alone cost me $125! The blade is 512 fold Damascus; 4 1/4″ L x 1 3/16″ W x 5/32″ T
Blade is D2 Tool Steel; 4 1/4″ L x 1 1/4″ W x 3/32″ T Scales are Olive wood w/blue liners and brushed brass pins and bolster.
Primarily designed as a “small game” knife, Blade is etched D2 Tool Steel; 3″ x 1″ w x 1/8″ T, OAL 7 1/2″ Scales are Maple Burl w/ red liners and copper pins and logo.
PuP 022 This will be the last in this series so if you want a PuP, get it now!
Blade is etched 440C High Carbon Stainless Steel w/drop point; 2 1/2″ L x 7/8″ W x 1/8″ T; OAL 6 1/2″. Scales are 200 year old American Oak & Purple Heart w/ brass logo.
The Defender was designed specifically with the ladies in mind. The sheath is flat and has a beltloop at the back so it can either be worn on the belt, flat to the body or dropped safely into your purse. Blade is etched 440C High Carbon Stainless Steel; 3 5/16″ L x 1 1/16″ W x 0.8″ T, OAL is 7 3/8″ Scales are Faux Antique Ivory w/blue liners.
This knife is just a wee bit smaller than the Hunter. I consider them both as “small game” knives. Steel is 440C High Carbon Stainless Steel; 2 5/8″ L x 7/8″ W x 1/8″ T, OAL is 6 1/2″
Mule Skinner 001
Blade is etched 440C High Carbon Stainless Steel; 3″L x 1 3/8″W x 5/32″T, OAL 7 1/2″. Scales are Walnut. Brass bolster and pins.
Tinker may be tiny compared to other knives I make but it is just as mighty! This would be a good knife for the Lady of the House or a good first fixed-blade for a daughter or son. The blade is etched D2 Tool Steel; 2 1/8″ L x 5/8″ w x 1/8″ T, OAL 5 1/2″. Scales are Zebra Wood w/green liners and peened copper pins and logo.
