Kritzman Customs goal is to produce high quality handmade knives that are both good looking and rugged. All work from design to finishing is performed by Alan Kritzman who has been making knives in Cedar Rapids Iowa since 2013. All knifes are hand cut from raw materials with no CNC machine work. My path to knife making was not the same as many young makers, I didn’t start thinking about making my first knife until I had been through several other hobbies including custom cars, electric car, home built airplane and spending enough time in class rooms to get a couple masters degrees. Each of these has taught me about quality, hard work and patience. I have always enjoyed making thing with my hands and focusing on making the best quality I am capable of.
