Discover unusual, high-quality, handmade gifts for your loved one, for a friend or colleague…or for yourself.
You can tell from the name of my etsy shop—Elk and Iron—that I enjoy working with elk antler and desert ironwood. Carbon fiber is a great new addition to my materials list – you’ll find it in the tuxedo shirt studs, cuff links, and tie bars. I like to experiment with hammering metal, too, along with the brightly-colored natural and composite stones you’ll see in the hair forks, ear studs, and other pieces.
My pieces are unique and affordable, ready to ship immediately, and all handmade by me:
- Knives with custom leather sheaths
- Cuff links
- Tuxedo shirt studs
- Hair sticks
- Hair forks
- Scarf pins
- Jewelry and more

I handmade this custom linerlock folding knife here in my workshop from a bar of 400C steel, a beautiful piece of desert ironwood, and 410 stainless steel liners and spring. You can see some of the process of making the knife in the last photo in the etsy listing. I handcut and sewed the leather sheath, too.
Like this knife, every piece in my shop is hand-cut and shaped which, along with the natural uniqueness of the antler and wood, makes each piece one of a kind.
We take the time to photograph each and every piece we list, too—when you shop at Elk and Iron, you get the exact item you see in the photo.
Here are a few of the handcrafted pieces currently listed in my shop on etsy — click on a photo to see more!
