About the Maker

Maringer, Tom

I made knives and swords professionally full-time from 1977 to 1994, completing about 910 blades, of which some 69 were over 18" in blade length and thus were classified as swords.During the 1980's and early 1990's Tom's work, primarily swords and daggers, were frequently shown in Ken Warner's Annual Knife Editions Books. Tom is well known for his swords, wire-wrapped handles and Kydex® sheaths. He quit making swords and knives in 1994 and went on to other types of work.
