Terry Vandeventer earned his Master Smith stamp from the American Bladesmith Society in 2006. Since then, Mississippi’s only Master Smith offers some of the most exceptional handmade Damascus knives you will come across. His Damascus is primarily 1084 and 15n20, sometimes with a little 2095 added to provide a third color. He feels all three are excellent steels and when welded together correctly never produce a weak-link in his Damascus. For his handle materials Terry prefers natural materials. Woolly Mammoth, ancient Walrus Ivory, and Sambar Stag are used almost exclusively.
Intricate file work can be found on the liners and spacers of virtually every knife he makes. The combination of the materials and craftsmanship found in each knife creates a edged work of art that would make any collector proud to own.
