Paul Mason of Mason Knives is a full time knife maker trying to keep English handmade knives alive!

Templates are made from O1 tool steel and a shield shape is cut out using a jewellers saw frame with piercing saw blades. These are then filed to size and hardened, not tempered.

The 1.2mm carbide cylinder burrs he uses to route out a pocket for the stainless shields on the knives. The pocket is only about 1.2mm deep, the same depth of the Stainless shield.
The below image shows the process to cut a "pocket" in the scale material.

More of Paul's work can be found on his instagram account where most of the different patterns can be seen.

Mason Knives by Paul Mason are made using Eternal Tools, tools.  Carbide Cylinder burrs (TCCY) are predominatly used, plus a piercing saw blades in a jewellers saw frame for cutting out the shields.

The glass engraving of a lion below has been expertly done by Tatooist Jean-Francois Miralles.

The effect has been done by using a combination of small diamond ball burrs, EVEflex Brown Rubber Bullet Polishing Burr (also see a wider range of shapes here), flame and bullet shaped Grey Rubber Silicone Polishers and cylinder and ball shaped White Arkansas Stone Burrs.
