The earliest forms of knife like tools and weapons dates back to Lower Paleolithic period around 2 1/2 million years ago and would have been made from flint, rock and bone. The very first metal knives would have been made from Copper, being double edged and symmetrical type daggers. There are many types of knives, knife designs and uses for them depending on the culture of people and the knives intended use.
It is estimated that around 4000 years ago, in the Bronze age, the first single edged knife was created. The men and women would have used this type of knife for cooking, hunting and carpentry work.
The word knife, itself, is said to come from the old Norse word for blade which is ‘knifr’.
During the early 1800’s the knife making guilds of Sheffield were the largest exporters to America from England. These men crafted excellent and superior quality knives that were consistent. Many blacksmiths and small companies were crafting fine knives domestically but had a difficult time among consumers because of the lack of consistent quality.
There is so much intriguing information about the history of knives and how their are constructed. I will not be getting into the details and immense history but just grazing on some of the information and my past visit with Knife Forger and Mennonite, Sam Stoner from Allen County, Kentucky.
Many of you will remember my writing from a few years back on Sam and other artisans in the Mennonite and Amish communities near where I live. I will be visiting with Sam on the 25th of April to do a workshop, video and photograph session where I will be taught and instructed by Sam, to make an early rendition of a knife. Sam is well known in his community and has been featured on KET.
Sam Stoner is a master craftsman, forger and blacksmith who creates incredible knives and swords in his workshop. These fine knives can be purchased and the best way to get in touch with him is by writing to his address in Scottsville, KY. I will post the address at the end of my writing.
When making a knife, metal is forged by heating a single piece of steel and shaping the metal with a hammer or press while it is very hot.
The lovely jeweling, also known as damascening or engine turning, that is sometimes used on knives and guns is not only aesthetically pleasing but serves a utilitarian function. This jeweling process works to cut down on the internal friction by reducing the area contact from the parts to create a smooth action and end result. It greatly increases the holding capacity for lubricant on surfaces, too.
I look forward to my meeting with Knife maker, Sam Stoner and seeing what kind of knife we will create. Please follow my Blog here to stay tuned on my next story with Sam on the 25th of April!

We are excited here at Synfuels Assets Management LLC to announce that our groundbreaking Patent, 9895404- Cannabidiol Extraction Plant Processes will be a large shift in Hemp/Agriculture industry. This process works equally as well with THC extraction and will extract any Terpenes and Alkaloid oils without any wax content!
This will take the cannabis industry out of the realm of cottage producers to the scale of agricultural industry!
This powerful system provides for the high quality extraction of an extremely bio active oil that can be used in tinctures and also is fat soluble which makes it wonderful for baked goods, etc. The oil can be used in beverages and other liquid products, too.
This is an Industrial Process that will encourage the development of large markets and bring the Cannabis industry out of the ‘cottage’ market stage that it is presently in.
The advantages of this special process are:
1.) The process is a flow through distillation process
2.) The extraction process is a pulse batch to increase the alkaloid oil recovery. However it can be run as a flow through to increase process throughput.
3.) The CBD oil can undergo decarboxylation if desired during the process.
4.) The alkaloid oil can be further purified through a number of post processing steps.
5.) The extracted oil is very rich in terpenes and other highly active components that are naturally in the cannabis oil.
6.) There are NO WAXES in the finished product making further processing very simple!
7.) This process can handle fresh harvested plants directly from the field without a significant change in CBD/THC content in the oil and provide dewatering for the fiber.
8.) Final product has a fresh, great taste, making it good for all types of ingestion.
9.) The process capital cost per pound is extremely low when calculated on a per day basis ($51.50) where as CO2 Extraction methods can be as high as 33,000.00/lb./day
10.) This process is fully automatic with minimum requirement for personnel.
