For Sale & Commission from Tucson, Arizona artist Larry Gotkin: Award-winning handmade custom knives, edged weapons, powderhorns, tomahawks, war clubs, jewelry, metal sculpture, cribbage boards, flint & obsidian knives, Japanese swords, menorahs, pet portraits, and more
started doing scrimshaw as a hobby in 1979.
Knives, jewelry, and firearms were excellent
canvases for this new hobby, so I began
to rehandle knives and firearms and sell them
problem with any crafts hobby is that you
soon run out of room in your own house
to display pieces, and I cannot afford
to give them ALL away as gifts! Thus, the
birth of this website.
Over the years,
I have used several blade suppliers including House
of Muzzleloading, Texas Knifemakers Supplies, Kris
Cutlery, and others, modifying them as required. In 2009, I began forging some, mostly historical, blades of my own. The forged blades are noted as such in the descriptions on this website.
I also have been collaborating with a local bladesmith, Uhrs Chantell (firstname.lastname@example.org). He beats the iron and I handle and sheath the resulting blades. The Magua tomahawk and Magua knife are samples of our collaboration.
My latest passions are hand-forged metal sculptures and knives, along with powderhorns and warclubs! Please note that katanas and wakisashis can be made to order to match the tantos to make a complete daisho. The cribbage boards, jewelry, Jewish religious objects, and pet portraits illustrate the breadth of my work.
I hope you enjoy looking at my portfolio. Please contact
me with any comments or suggestions together we can come
up with a truly unique piece of custom work. » Read more about Larry Gotkin
