Nick Anger is a bladesmith, woodworker, metallurgist, and chemist who creates utterly unique, custom Damascus steel knives. He works alone out of his workshop in Vermont, surrounded by different hydraulic presses, hammers, and anvils. Nick specializes in layering different materials, combining them into billets, twisting them, and creating a blade that is both functional and beautiful.
He prefers to be inspired by the world around him and he rarely, if ever, takes commissions for pieces. Nick likes making knives more than he likes knives.
