A Good Blade…

… is damn hard to find these days.  Sure you can grab a Buck knife or corner store pocket folder to get the job done, but I’m looking for more in my knife.  It has to have character; reflect the owner; be extension of his hands and personality.  I’ve been a knife collector since I was a little Scout, and these are my first attempts at knife making.  The small one is made entirely of sterling silver with a brass knob which is used to push out the blade.  I wanted it to look like a pirate’s old wooden switchblade.  The large wooden knife is a fully loaded switchblade I made from a kit.  The metal components are all high grade stainless steel, the scales are made from Cocobolo wood, and I used vintage brass hardware to pin it together.  Fully custom switchblades by Nicholas Potash…. If you want one hit me up, just remember…  no snitchin’ and don’t get caught!

  1. Hello Nicholas,

    Your work is sick. I want all of it. The blades and the bling. How might I acquire some?

    • Hey Danger, thanks for the kind words… I have some pieces for sale at npotash.bigcartel.com or else if you’re in Los Angeles I have a bunch of new works that haven’t been put on the webstore that I could offer you. Thanks again for your interest and I’m looking forward to styling you out! –Nick
