Gallery of new JBF knives

Here are a few photos from our series of new J.B.F. Champlin knives.

 

Our first offering was a Tear Drop Jack made by GEC. We made 50 with bone handles and 50 with ebony. Serial numbers were stamped on the reverse side of the bolster. A polishing cloth was included with each knife.

Our first an only ad to date, appeared in the January 2013 issue of Knife World Magazine. The graphics on the knife pictured in the ad were created in Photoshop since none of our knives actually existed when we placed the ad.

 

Our first ad appeared in Knife World Magazine.
