First Look at Hofsommer Forge Knives

The newest addition to the DLT family, Hofsommer Forge. From our trip to a custom knife show, we had the pleasure to meet Cody Hofsommer of Hofsommer Forge. His knives stood out from the rest with the quality of his fit and finish; and for his beautiful damascus work. Cody has been making knives for the past 11 years; which look as good or better than knives from knife makers that have been at it for a lifetime.

In the first batch of knives that we have is one custom bowie and four custom hunters. The bowie is spectacular to look at; from the filework in the spacer to the exquisite feather damascus blade. This bowie includes a hand tooled leather sheath that matches perfectly to the knife. If you look closely you will see that the stud is even made from damascus. When we inquired about this small feature, Cody told us that he couldn’t find one that fit the sheath, so he made it himself from the same steel used in the blade.

The hunters that we have are as functional as they are good looking. The handles are perfectly sized for a full four finger grip, with a stainless steel guard to ensure you are protected when the knife is used in the field. Each one of these Hofsommer Hunters include a hand built leather sheath with a horizontal carry belt loop.

We are excited to have these in the shop and look forward to future projects with Cody Hofsommer.
