Being exposed from a very early age to working with KNIVES and being brought up in a home where respect for these TOOLS was ingrained and just as important as good care for them, it was only natural that HUMAYD (pronounced HOO-MAY-YED) would take to KNIFE MAKING like a duck to water.Presently he shares a well laid out Shop with his Father, who is a part-time Maker. His Knives are currently made via the Stock-removal method with his own in-house HEAT TREATING, that sees him achieve Rockwell 60 - 62 on the Hardness scale with specific steels. His repertoire includes HUNTERS, TACTICAL - both FOLDERS and FIXED BLADES, FIGHTERS, SWORDS and even COLLECTABLES.
