History:  

ALVARADO, a city in Vega Township, has the name of a seaport and river in Mexico, about 40 miles southeast of Vera Cruz. It is also the name of a small city in Texas and of villages in Indiana and California. It was first settled in 1879 and incorporated as a village on October 16, 1907; its post office began as Snake in 1888, named for its location on the Snake River, with Ole Sand, postmaster, in his store. When the Minneapolis, St. Paul and Sault Ste. Marie Railroad (Soo Line) came in 1903, its construction crew established the station name as Alvarado, so Sand with his brother moved the store and the post office in 1905, changing the post office name, and Sand's son, Martin H. Sand, became the new postmaster.

My knives starts as hand forged carbon steel blades. Each blade is heat-treated using a differential technique. This process produces a hard edge and softer back. I believe that the resulting blade has greater edge holding qualities while providing more blade strength than blades produced using other heat treating techniques.
