In my work, I try to create models with clean lines that enfasize the beauty of the materials chosen for each creation with no interference on its performance. First and foremost, form must follow fucntion in each one of my creations and they are all made with one objective: to please the most demanding users.

A Very Special Santoku!

Each one of my knives is unique and this one is even more unique!

As you know, no good story starts with “I was drinking a glass of milk” and this one is no exception. Since I no longer own a bar,I use to spend a few hour every day at a craft beer store as a therapy and also a means to help the owners and in one of these occasions, while drinking a mug of bber with Bruno, a customer that works as a tatoo artist, he mentioned he was also trying his hand at working with a pyrograpf (on wood, not on human skin!) and when he showed me the pics of his work, I immediatelly noticed that it would fit nicelly on my knife handles. One week later, the first result of our partthership has been finished: a very detaed dragon carved around the eight-sided clear imbuia wood handle of this santoku that you can see on the pics bellow and also on a video I posted at Facebook and Instagram because ther was no way to upload it here.

Personally, this work has pelased me a lot because it matches my style with perfection, adding an artistic tough to my usually austere, spartan cutting machines in a way that doesn´t get in the way of the knife when it is used – as a matter of fact, the texture on the handle makes it even better to grip.

Hopefully, we will have more knives embellished like this – maybe special editions – crafted according to Bruno´s schedule but, for now, this is the only one in existence and it is availabile for US$ 310.00, plus US$ 20.00 for worldwide shipping, including a wooden box. As usual, first come, first serve and you can reach me at ivan@ivancampos.net or at my mobile/whatsapp 00-55-15-997120993.

Well, so here is a robust tanto with a 7″ long, 52100 steel blade and Japanese inspired, cord wrapped and resin soaked handle with a damascus steel menuki.

And we will have some more little damascus knives! By the way, one interesting thing about these knives is that they are made from the smaller pieces of the damascus steel bar, each one being titally unique. Their handles also usually get top quality eooda from pieces left from other projects – in this case, amboyna burl, thuya burl and tambotie.

Kitchen Pitbulls 1 and 2 availabile!

pb1e2edit.jpg

It seems like everybody loves a compact, “do everything, take everywhere” kitchen knife so I designed the Kitchen Pitbulls, or just KPs, that fit perfectly on this description.

Both are made of k100 (d3) tool steel and have wood handles – in this picture´s knives, castelo for the 1 and morado for the 2). Both are similar in profile but have very different sizes: the KP 1 is about 21″ long and has a 5″ bçade while the KP2 is 7 3/4″ long with a 4″ long, slimmer blade.

I have enough steel for about 6-8 of these and then we will see if they stay on my line or will be made as a limited edition, wich is most likely.

KP 1 – US$ 145.00 plus US$ 20.00 for worldwide shipping

KP 2 – US$125.00 plus US$ 2000 for worldwide shipping

Or get both for US$ 245.00 shipped! Isn´t it a great deal?

Well, for now there are only two knives finished – the one in the picture – so first come, first serve.

You can order by phonewhatsapp (00-55-15-997120993) or e-mail (ivan@ivancampos.net)

The Higonokami 2017 is Availabile!

16244731_1252899868132616_1438437061_o

And after a long winter, here is the new version of my first and most popular folder, the Higonocampos.

Its name is a mix of “higonokam”, the traditional Japanese folder, with my surname. It was invented by someone at British Foruns, I believe and it fists perfectly since  the folder is not traditional but a version of it with my own touches.

The new version keeps the clean lines and symetric handle of the earlier ones but now it is made of brass with a thick sandpaper finish for a textured grip and its blade, tat is about 3″ long, is made from k100 steel and also made along the lines of the first models.

US$ 145.00, plus US$ 20.00 for worldwide shipping.

One piece availabile so, as usual, first come, first serve!
