Just thought I might tell you a little about Curtiss Custom Knives LLC. We are a veteran owned small business. When I decided to create this business, I had one standard in mind. To make the best knives and give the best customer service possible. I would like to tell you a little about customer service. My first job when I was a young boy was at a full service gas station if anyone remembers what that is. I was taught to not only pump gas but also check tire pressure, oil level , wash the windshield, and anything else that you saw needed to be done. I tried to use the same business model for Curtiss Custom Knives LLC. Let’s face it, these knives are not cheap. I know if I spent that kind of money I would expect to have an unconditional lifetime warranty too. If you don’t take care of your customers, you won’t have any eventually. It really has to do with taking pride in what I make. I never claimed to make the best knife, but I will give you the best customer service I possibly can. The knives will always get better. With that being said, here is the warranty on our knives. Unconditional Lifetime Warranty within reason. When I say within reason, it just means to use common sense. Your knife is not a screwdriver, pry bar or an axe. Don’t use it in that manner. Use it for what a knife is designed for, cutting. Now I don’t care if you are the original owner or the 10th owner. I warranty the knife, not the person. If you need a repair or just want your knife sharpened, please email me. Its that simple. Next is the processes we use to make our knives. I am the only one in our shop. No magic mini shop monkeys or anything. Just me. I start with a thought and turn it into a CAD drawing. If I like what I see, I create run files and cut my parts on our waterjet machine. Yes we have a waterjet in our shop. After the materials are cut into the basic shapes, I use our CNC machining center for the secondary processes such as milling, drilling, pockets and tapping. I do my blade grinds by hand on 2″x 72″ belt grinders that I designed and built. Other shop equipment includes heat treat oven, blast cabinet, vibe machine and misc. other machines. Anything else is done by hand by me. I do all of my sharpening on a belt machine I built. All knives receive a 20 degree polished edge. I do currently outsource for some hardware but we hope to make that ourselves soon. So I do not put my knives in a “mid-tech” or “production” classification. I call my knives “CUSTOM”. We own and operate all machinery in house. I'm very pleased to work with Arizona Custom Knives and look forward to a long relationship.
Chad DeTalente, owner of Alphahunter Tactical Design, has collaborated with some of the best custom knifemakers in the industry and he is only interested in making the best product available. His designs are highly sought after for their amazing quality and supreme rareness. Chad's worked with Jake Hoback, Peter Rassenti, and Matt Christensen to name a few.
As a retired law enforcement officer I needed a knife that I could trust my life on not only as a last line of defense but as an every day tool. I don't believe in safe queens and refuse to own a knife that I wont use. Enter Nick Swan Knives, established 2014. I offer life time re-sharpening for free, use it. I fully expect you to carry your knife with the confidence that it will be free from defects in materials and workmanship. All Nick Swan Knives include my lifetime re-sharpening guarantee.
In my opinion, a knife can be both a work tool and an art-object and it is terrific if it is possible to combine unconventional design with utility. In knifemaking I give preference to high quality corrosion-resistant stainless steels, titanium, modern laminates: carbon fiber and G10 as well as fine woods.
I have been making knives since 1996. I've made a wide variety of styles. My latest designs and direction have been into gentlemen’s tacticals. Form follows function is alive and well in my shop! I strive for excellence in my work. Each product is a reflection of my work ethic, my dedication to detail, and my insistence on quality. I am known for my fine fit and finish; and I don't take that lightly. "Good enough" is not acceptable in my shop. My goal, with every knife I make, is to make it the best example of what that knife should be. This also carries over to the EDC gear. I have won over 50 awards during my career, including two “Best of Show” at the Blade Show in Atlanta. I live on a working cattle ranch in New Mexico. Though I would never be considered a typical cowboy! My wife, Sally, and I have one son.
My name is Jason Burley Stout. I am a machinist / tool and die maker. I use this knowledge in the construction of my knives. Primary blade steels are CPM D-2, D-2 and A-2 Tool steels. For stainless I prefer CPM 154-CM , CPM S30-V and BG-42. All heat treating, sub-zero and cryo treatments are done by me. I use the stock removal method to profile and produce hollow, flat and scandi grinds. All blades are checked on a Rockwell hardness tester for quality. Primary handle materials are canvas micarta and G-10. I also do all the leather and Kydex sheathes. My guarantee is simple. If one of my knives or tools should fail under it's intended use , caused by defect in material or workmanship. I will fix it or replace for free. I build knives that will last for many generations if cared for properly. Thanks to all my customers for your generous support.
Jeremy Horton is a custom knife maker from Camden, TN, specializing in tactical tools. Jeremy makes knives mostly for shows and always sells them via lottery so getting a piece of his is sometimes difficult.
My interest in knives and swords began in adolescence, but it wasn’t until the late 1990’s when I discovered my passion for custom knives. I was initially drawn to tactical pieces, but my approach to knife making is largely inspired via the myriad of elegant and lethal designs from diverse cultures and eras. Due to my background in graphic arts and illustration, designing knives has always been the easiest part of knife making for me. Aspiring to create aesthetically pleasing knives which excel in both form and function, I draw heavily on time-tested designs, geometries, and materials . I currently reside in southern Colorado, where I enjoy hiking, fishing and spending time with my wife and son.
The knife is one of the most ancient tools of human labor, his faithful assistant and reliable friend. A knife is more than just a tool, it is an attribute of a man, a symbol of strength and a masculine principle, in the history of its development, walking side by side with man and evolving with him. Today we live in the age of high technologies, which not only provide an opportunity for a qualitatively different processing of materials, but also bring such knife requirements as reliability, convenience, practicality, quality of cutting to a new level. The Shirogorov Brothers Workshop honors the traditions and experience of leading knife manufacturers and at the same time closely monitors the development trends and needs of the knife market, offering users original original folding knives made in Russia. We are not afraid to experiment and develop, we know and love our job. Our knives are outstanding designs and unity of the concept, modern materials and advanced technologies, well-thought-out ergonomics and full-fledged functionality. In our model range, everyone can find a suitable option among the variety of complete sets that meet the most diverse requirements. That is why the knives produced by our Workshop are deservedly widely popular among not only ordinary users in Russia and abroad, but also sophisticated connoisseurs and demanding collectors, and tens of thousands of owners have been able to evaluate the high quality and convenience of our knives.
I have made hand forged tomahawks now for over 35 years. Most of these hawks have been working historical reproductions and utility/camping axes. When it comes to design, my job as an engineer/historian/bladesmith is to draw from a wealth of historical axes aspects that we like and that can be executed with the tools and talents found in the shop. We may choose a blade shape here, a handle style there, a bowl shape from yet another piece. We may accurately copy just one tomahawk and it's details. There were thousands of tomahawks made in the 18th and 19th centuries, and because they were handmade no two were exactly alike. This makes my job pretty easy design wise: I pick the elements and execute these thoughts in the medium of iron, steel, wood and leather.
My name is Peter Carey and I've been making custom knives since 1997, specializing in Tactical Folders and Dress Tactical Folders, I also make Fixed Blade Tacticals, Hunters and Utility knives. Current blade steels are CPM154, S35VN, Stainless steel Damascus from various makers and Stellite 6K. I prefer high tech man made handle materials like Carbon Fiber, Titanium, Zirconium and G10. For Dress Tacticals I use Pearl, Mammoth Ivory, Exotic woods and MokuTi or Timascus. All my folders have custom pocket clips designed specifically for each model, also a custom pivot of my design, "The Original Carey Pivot". I make all my knives with my hands using manual machines in my shop from designs I've drawn by hand. I strive to make the best knife I possibly can with the best materials money can buy. Knives are one of man's oldest and most useful tools, I think everyone should own one or two!
All of our knives are made in the USA and we will keep it that way. When you purchase one of our knives you can have confidence in your tool knowing that it is backed by an American company. Our knives are made in small production runs to ensure you receive a quality knife that has been given the attention other mass produced knives don't receive. In 2015 my wife Jessica and I founded Heretic Knives. As a second generation knife maker, applying the knowledge that has been passed to me, I want to bring designs and certain elements to the craft that haven't been tried before. In closing, I look forward to passing the same knowledge, plus what I've picked up on my own, down to the next generation.
Chris Reeve Knives began operations on January 1, 1984, in a one-car garage in Durban, South Africa, when Chris moved from full-time Tool and Die Maker/part time knife maker to full-time knife maker. For a couple years he was the only employee but gradually and steadily, the company has grown to reach its present position as a well equipped manufacturing company and a noted brand in the industry. The road between 1984 and today has not always been smooth. For many years, the endeavor was under-funded but with determination, Chris and Anne put all they had into producing the best knives possible, within the resources available. In March 1989, they moved from their native South Africa and settled in Boise, Idaho. That move in itself was a major undertaking but vital for the future of the company. Chris has always "pushed the envelope". Whether on a motorcycle or behind a belt grinder, he dreamed of being a world champion. He did not win a motorcycle world championship but in many respects, the standing of CRK today represents one. His induction into the Cutlery Hall of Fame in June 2015 could be considered his championship trophy. The single thought in Chris' mind has always been to design every model with deliberation, taking into account how the knife works, its intended purpose and the most appropriate materials. On this foundation, CRK is a vibrant business, has a great staff of well-trained employees, and remains a company with a worldwide reputation for raising the standards bar - "pushing the envelope" - for the industry.
Ernest Emerson started making custom knives in his garage in 1979. He rapidly rose to prominence as a knife maker due in equal parts to his expertise as a craftsman, (tool and die maker), his artists eye for design, and his practical experience as one of the world’s most sought-after and respected hand-to-hand combat instructors. Emerson’s work has been featured and exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Smithsonian Museum. There are only a handful of living artists who can make that claim. As an instructor in hand-to-hand combat and edged weapon skills, Mr. Emerson has taught the most elite warriors on earth, from the US Navy SEALs to the Guards of Parliament in London and everywhere in between. He is the author of scores of articles, books, and videos regarding tactics, training and combat. As one of the most sought after instructors in the world he is in high demand for seminars and lectures to civilian, military and law enforcement agencies. He is an inducted member of The Martial Arts Hall of Fame, along with such venerable names as Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris. In fact he is the only knife maker known who also owns and operates his own training facility, the world-class “Black Shamrock Combat Academy Gym” in Los Angeles, California.

My name is Bastien Coves and I’m 35 years old. I have been a french Knifemaker for 11 years and I recently had the chance to move to the USA. I live now with my wife and my 2 daughters near Orlando, FL. I started my knife collection when I was 7 and I’m very experienced with carrying, using, and playing each day with different kinds of knives ( fixed blades, Karambits, balisongs, Katanas, folding knives, push daggers, etc.). My work as a knifemaker and knife designer pushes me to make lots of cutting tests each week over the past 10 years, which allows me to better create and warranty the perfect knife to my customers. I've done work for the military, law enforcement, french special units, martial arts instructors, martial arts students, collectors, etc. My work is my passion and I’m lucky to live it each day. To meet and share it with other people who are passionate about knives
