Dwaine Carrillo has been making custom knives since 1998. He started out making utility and hunting knives, with a primary focus on survival and hunting. One of Dwaine's goals was to make knife sheaths which were as functional as the knives they carry."I wanted to do something different than the industry standard. I see a lot of beautiful knives out there but I never see an equally well built sheath. So I decided I would do something different and start making the most RUGGED and FUNCTIONAL knife sheaths and knives I could possibly make. And that's exactly what I did." After making fixed blades for five years, Dwaine began making his trademark beefy folders.
