I am Ethan Kempf, I Create Sharp Art.


I am a freelance Bladesmith based in the temperate rainforests of Chehalis, Washington. 

Everything I create is by hand and sole authorship. Each Blade is an utterly unique piece of functional, high performance art, that will not, and can not be exactly reproduced.

Each piece is painstakingly forged with hundreds upon hundreds of hammer blows and heat in excess of 2,000F.

A Kempf blade will last generations with no decrease in performance with proper care.
