AmeriBrade periodically hosts Challenges on their Instagram (@ameribrade) where they randomly select a few makers to compete in a build off of a blade profile chosen by them. I’m hyped to announce that I was selected for Challenge #4: Cleaver Build Off!
Myself and three other randomly selected makers on IG will be competing to make the most bad ass, backyard bbq ready cleaver our minds can come up with. The blanks are in the mail and mine should be arriving Monday 7/9 so I look forward to diving right in! The builds need to be finished by 7/19 with voting taking place on IG on the 20th. If you aren’t following me already you should head over to my IG @CamachoKnives and hit that Follow button to keep up with my build!
We’ll be competing for an awesome prize package from Combat Abrasives packed full of great knifemaking supplies and grinding belts. The blade steel is 1095 High Carbon at .125′ thick which is what I usually use for my knives so I’m really looking forward to this build. I’m definitely going to be pulling a crazy hamon out of this bad boy. Follow me on IG to see how the final product turns out!
Hope everyone had a great 4th of July!
I’m taking today to play catch up on some custom orders so I’ll be down in the workshop but the retail shop will be closed. I’ll resume normal hours Friday 7/6 12pm-6pm!
Had a run in with a driver who flew through a red light on Tuesday. We’re both uninjured but my truck is out of commission for the time being. For the next few days at least I will be relying on friends and family for transportation and will do my best to be in the shop on time. I should be in today by 3pm.
Thanks for your understanding!
My lovely fiance Sara is hosting a Plant & Bake tonight at The Summit Lounge in Worcester, MA. I will be closing up shop early tonight to attend and help her out.
Sorry for any inconvenience!
I ran out of some materials needed for a few last minute father’s day projects and need to catch the leather store before it closes so I will be closing up shop early today. Have a great father’s day weekend!
Shop will be closed Thurs 5/17, Friday 5/18, and Saturday 5/19 while I attend Brokenfeather Palooza 2018 knife and tomahawk throwing competition down in Berwyn, PA hosted by Joseph Darrah. Hope to see some of you there!
Look for my table May 5th at the Nashua, NH 2018 Nu Muse festival hosted by the Great American Downtown!
Nu Muse, expected to draw as many as 5,000 to Nashua’s Historic Downtown in its second year, will bring a day-long music festival featuring an eclectic array of what the national music scene has to offer. The unique festival will also feature the roll out of the Nashua Street Pianos, City Arts Nashua’s Comeback Kitchen Table public art installation, street performers, an arts and artisans market, food trucks and more! This event is free and open to the public!
Find more information HERE.
I just received a restock on 1095 high carbon steel and O-1 tool steel as well as a huge amount of new stabilized wood and resin knife handle material to choose from. I will be hustling and grinding these next 9 days to prepare for the festival. I hope to have a wide selection of knives available for immediate purchase including chef/kitchen knives, hunting/camping, daily carry, and various misc. designs. I will also have various unique leather goods available.
I will have custom order forms on hand as well if nothing catches your eye but you’d still like to get your hands on a 100% handcrafted, unique, heirloom quality knife. I expect my books to fill up quickly, wait time is currently approx 4-6 weeks and expected to go up, so stop by early if you want to get in the books for a custom knife!
See you there!
