2G KNIVES has a recent, but intense life.

In the year 2004, two good old friends, Rodrigo Mulero Crespí and Pepín Vives, having both logged a long experience in craftmanship, metal work and gunsmithing, decided to fulfill a childhood dream: to make custom knives.

 Custom knifemaking is often a late-life vocation, a place where you arrive carried by some magic sharp dwarfs that you keep hiding inside you, until one day, they decide to show up in the shape of a knife.

 The name

Pepín Vives and Rodrigo Mulero started together in 2004, they choosed the name 2G KNIVES. 2G KNIVES are the initials of “2 Ganivaters”, “2 knifemakers” in catalan. From 2009, Pepín Vives graduatly left his work in 2G KNIVES, until the year 2010, when he did his last works, the famous and renowned Sheridan sheaths. From that moment, the sheaths are made by Bear Holsters. In the year 2011, Ridrigos son started to work in the forge, to follow the steps of his father.

That was the case with our inspirer William W. Scagel as well as with Bo Randall, Bob Loveless, and many other people who were not born within a knifemakers environment. One day they heard this hidden voice and they made knives their passion. Without trying to compare ourselves to these Masters with our own craftmanship, we certainly share the same passion. A passion which made them Universal men. This Universal Spirit, which recognizes no frontiers, has reached us and moved our souls into the world of William Scagel.

But why this type of knives and not another? Very simple: when we saw a Scagel knife for the first time we knew that these, and not others, were the knives we wanted to make. A real arrow shot. A love story.

We sincerely hope to convey all these feelings when you handle one of our knives: the passion with which we make them and the perpetual search of perfection, a long hard path which we stroll day after day.

The Knifemaking Process

Our blades are handforged from tool steel with a high carbon content. We use the steels O1 and 52100, tool and all-bearing steels. We forge the blades by hand, because we think that this is the best way to improve the steels caracteristics.
Our knives have a full tang, 6mm x 14mm and a silver soldered guard from german silver or brass. The solver permits a strong and rugged construction and won’t allow moisture to enter in the handle, as the tang is completely sealed. The handle is composed by discs from aluminium, fibre, exotic hard woods, leather and a riveted stag crown. Befor riveting the tang, the discs are glued with epoxi and compressed (200kg pressure).
