ABOUT THE MAKER
Harris, Ralph Dewey
Ralph Dewey Harris is a full time knife maker who sold his first knife in 1978. He makes collector quality interframe folders, autos, and OTF's of his own design. Dewey uses 440C, ATS-34, and commercial damascus for his blades, and 416SS and titanium as well as other steel for the frames. He favors natural materials like ivory, mother of pearl, wood, abalone, and occasionally uses some man made materials like carbon fiber. Dewey is also an accomplished engraver, and his trademark scroll engraving is instantly recognizeable. Dewey was the first custom knifemaker to design and build a double action OTF, and the quality and scarcity of that piece has made it legendary among collectors. Dewey is a voting member of the Knifemakers Guild.
