About the Maker

Derrick Wulf is a bladesmith and decorative blacksmith originally from the United States and currently living in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. He makes primarily hand-forged carbon steel and damascus kitchen knives, hunting knives, defensive weapons and other steel tools. All of his work is individually designed, sole-authored, and made in his own workshop using hand-tools and manually-operated machinery.

Derrick has been forging knives and tools for customers since the early 2000s. He is a member of the American Bladesmith Society and earned the rank of Journeyman Smith in 2013. His work has been featured in several national publications including Blade magazine, Tactical Knives, and Knife World.

His design and construction methods are informed primarily by performance considerations, while his material selections and hand finishing processes are meant to provide the owner with a both a highly functional and finely crafted tool.
