Z Custom Knives
Z Custom Knives are handmade by Chris English. Z Custom Knives was started by my grandfather, Zollan McCarty. He started in the knife making trade in 1947. I have been in and around the knife shop my entire life learning this trade. All the knives are handmade and customized by me. Although I make all kinds of knives, automatics are my specialty. I heat treat and Rockwell test every blade. The blade steels I most commonly use are ATS 34, 154 CM, 440C, Vastco Max C350, CPMS30V, CPMS60V, CPMS90V, and the tool steel CPM10V. The frames of my knives are 6AL/4V titanium or ATS34. All knives have a lifetime guarantee. Please remember that I am the only worker in the shop, thus the lifetime guarantee is good as long as I am alive and able.
