ABOUT THE MAKER
Hawk, Grant & Gavin
Visit this maker's website: Hawk Designs. Grant Hawk and his son Gavin of Idaho City, Idaho started making knives in 1994. Grant had just ended a 20 year career as a prospector and manufacturer of mining equipment. "I spent years making everything I needed out of anything I could find," Grant said. "I believe those experiences helped me to see solutions lying below the surface. To me, designing a knife is much like prospecting because it seems more a matter of discovery than an act of creation. The art of the prospector is to discover the unknown through the application of logic, hard work and luck. Whenever unrelated ideas are found to mesh perfectly, luck is playing its part and every prospector knows, it's better to be lucky than smart." After attending the Oregon Knife Collectors Association Show in 1994, Grant and Gavin were not only inspired to become knifemakers, but were determined to make a better folder, the result of which is their custom D.O.G. folder, now available from CRKT in a production model.
