No EDC is complete without a knife. From opening packages and cutting rope to mastering your fruit ninja skills and self defense, there are many reasons to have a knife handy. If you don’t need a multi-tool or plain utilitarian knives just don’t cut it, add some pizzazz to your blade game. For form, function, and style, look no further than the finely crafted pieces from Santa Fe Stoneworks. The company was founded by Bill Wirtel in 1978. He left his job to start his own shop in New Mexico. He still hones the blades for the stunning knives Stoneworks is known for alongside his son and daughter today. The studio calls the southernmost Rockies home and is filled with bones, gemstones, rare paleontological finds, and arcane tools, all used to create one-of-a-kind pieces.
Their knives combine everyday usability and stunning handcrafted work complete with unique materials, such as wooly mammoth tusk and even dinosaur bones. Stoneworks products are made with a variety of steel, hardwoods, and special stones. The company sells more than just knives. From table and kitchen cutlery to gifts and accessories, Stoneworks has all types of products perfect for your home and EDC.

Works of art
Stoneworks’ collaboration with Huckberry is the ultimate limited edition series. The combination of unique materials of rare mammoth tusk and genuine turquoise from the Nacozari Mine of Sonora. Discovered in the icy depths of the North Sea after 15,000 years of fossilization, mammoth tusk have incredible, one-of-a-kind colors. Each fossil ages in a unique way due to thousands of years of mineralization, so there will be variations of colors and patterns in tan, brown, and blue hues. No two knives are alike!
Stoneworks knives are beautiful, but also tough as nails. The 3” marbled Damascus blade hails from Japan and is called Sanmai Damascus or Sandwich Damascus. The blade is hammered from 16 layers of steel on each side in the traditional way of 17th-century Persian swordsmiths. There is a core of vg-10 steel within the layers. The rust free blade is extremely strong, has excellent edge retention, and features beautiful and dramatic patterns. Each blade is hand-finished with a stunning handle featuring a polished mammoth tooth front and polished wood back.
The Blue Mammoth Tooth Damascus Knife does not have the turquoise inlay like a few of the other knives in the collection, but features a stunning blue tusk design at the center of the handle. It’s a simple design with a pop of blue as an accent. The Damascus blade also lends to its unique look.
