Sandown NH Old Meeting House

Custom Hand Made Knives                         Maker: Michael Wall

My name is  Michael  Wall and I am a passionate knife maker residing in Central Florida. I enjoy all aspects of making custom knifes by hand. I do all the work on these knives including grinding, heat treat, finishing, leather work and scrimshaw. Ever since I was young I have been fascinated with metals. I have made a living in the metals industries including welding, welding engineering, welding instructor, welding inspector, welding applications engineer, engineering manager, and project manager. Every knife I make I try my very best to make the perfect knife. This is not my living but rather my passion. One might ask what is the connection between a Florida knife maker and Sandown, NH. Well, I lived for many years in Sandown, NH and enjoyed my time there very much. I met my wonderful wife as a young kid 40 years ago on the shores of Angle pond, a wonderful time and place long ago.

I chose the name Sandown Forge as a result of my love of Sandown and forging. Although I am not forging knives now but only using stock removal methods in constructing the knives offered I do hope to be forging soon. It has been a long time since I gave up forging due to unfortunate circumstances but hope to be offering forged knives in addition to stock removal constructed knives soon.

All the knives on my site may be ordered either by the PAYPAL link provided or send me an email and let me know what I can do for you. I enjoy doing special requests. I hope you enjoy the site and I will be updating it regularly.
