My name is Jason Burley Stout. I am a machinist / tool and die maker. I use this knowledge in the construction of my knives. Primary blade steels are CPM D-2, D-2 and A-2 Tool steels. For stainless I prefer CPM 154-CM , CPM S30-V and BG-42. All heat treating, sub-zero and cryo treatments are done by me. I use the stock removal method to profile and produce hollow, flat and scandi grinds. All blades are checked on a Rockwell hardness tester for quality. Primary handle materials are canvas micarta and G-10. I also do all the leather and Kydex sheathes. My guarantee is simple. If one of my knives or tools should fail under it's intended use , caused by defect in material or workmanship. I will fix it or replace for free. I build knives that will last for many generations if cared for properly. Thanks to all my customers for your generous support.
