He also forges his own damascus and mokume for a Darrel Ralph knife.
Ralph described his work, "I have extensively studied art and have worked professionally in the metal manufacturing industry for twenty five years. I am often commissioned by knife makers on special projects utilizing mosaic and special patterned damascus. My art influences come from Michelangelo, Frazetta, and medieval futuristic."
Darrel has served as an instructor at the ABS Bill Moran bladesmith school and at the NRA School at Montgomery College.
Ralph knives are attracting international attention. Several of his unique knife designs have been sold to knife companies for reproduction. I would high recommend Darrel's knives to anyone. Each blade is his own artistic vision of knifemaking.
