Now THAT’S a knife!

King Teddy features 80crv2 steel, a 9-inch blade, and ironwood scales. And it’s just one of the knives created by Jordan Gutierrez from Black Scale Forge in Modesto, California.

We feature Jordan’s knives in our Rising Talent column in the next issue of Knives Illustrated. Learn more about him and see more of his knives when the issue goes on sale, Sept 3rd.

In the meantime, check out Jordan on Facebook and Instagram at
