Dan McBride passed away suddenly on August 18, 2012.
""My name is Dan McBride. I'm a knife maker, artist, avid outdoorsman and martial arts practitioner living in Denver, Colorado.I always had an interest in knives and making them. As a kid, I took great interest in custom knives and used to try to make them. Needless to say, I ruined a lot of my dad's files and grinding wheels. However, I enjoyed trying.In 1997, after graduating high school, I left for the military. This brought greater interest in sciences, making knives, and customizing firearms. Over the past few years I've taken back up knife making. I use carbon steels mostly, with G10 material and/or paracord for handles.I make neck knives, tactical knives, hunting/outdoor knives, key chain knives, impact tools out of G10 material, and balisongs once in a while. As for now, my knives are one of a kind. I make them by hand, start to finish, with limited power tools. My focus is on making a quality tool and learning more as i go.""
