Jordan LaMothe M.S.

A knife is such a tool, and when he made his first at age 16, he was captivated by the craft.

Jordan started blacksmithing at the age of 14 to make tools for the family farm. Knife-making allows him to explore a wide variety of materials and techniques, while drawing inspiration from blades made throughout human history. He joined the American Bladesmith Society in 2013, whose regular symposia helped him focus on fit, finish, and functionality, and earned his Journeyman rating in 2018 and Master Smith rating in 2021. In 2022, he traveled to India for 9 months on a Fulbright Grant to study traditional Indian weaponry and gold and silver overlay techniques in Udaipur, Rajasthan. Jordan makes all manner of blades and teaches knife-making classes at various schools around the United States.
