Named for the Redwood Forests where I grew up in Santa Cruz County, Northern California. I started this knife a year ago and didn't finish until last week. I didn't keep track of how many hours went into it.
It's production was interrupted last August when I was the victim of a hit-and-run while riding my bike. I broke my knee, my hip, dislocated my right femur, and severed a tendon in my right quad. Needless to say, knifemaking took a back-seat for about 6 months while I relearned how to walk and stuff.
The Tenth Knife of my apprenticeship to KnifeMaker, Larry Detloff of Santa Cruz, California.
