About the Maker

GDS Knives (Seth Taylor)
GDS Knives (Seth Taylor)

I started making in 2016 with no experience in machining or knife making in general. Fortunately my father (David Taylor) and grandfather (C Gray Taylor) are both excellent makers. In fact Gray was until recently a member of the AKI and has consistently won the buster award at the show (with the exception of one year I believe). I named my start up GDS knives in tribute to my lineage, but I am the sole maker behind all the products that leave the shop. When I launch I started with the Vipera model, and then nearly a year later developed the Lycodon model. I wanted the two models to serve different purposes, and I believe that they do that quite well. Since the creation of the Lycodon I haven’t released any new models, (except for a small project I dubbed the venom but it’s not included in my custom line) and have instead focused on refining and improving the build quality. But something new might be coming soon.
