About the Maker
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.
My interest in knives began early at about the age of 8 when my Mom bought me a knife while on vacation at Knotts Berry Farm. Yeah I had to beg and beg her to buy it for me, and I still have it. I collected a few knives as a youngster. In 1993 still in High school I found an old knife that looked handmade. I asked my dad where it came from. He told me his brother used to make them out of old hacksaw blades from the railroad where he worked. I thought it was the coolest thing so I tried my hand at it. A few weeks later I finished my first knife a Bowie style knife using a chainsaw bar for the blade, some brass for the guard and antler for a handle. Since then I have made a few knives a year just as a hobby. In 2010 a good friend of mine that I work with at the railroad asked me to make him one and he said he would pay for it. After it was delivered orders started coming in for my handmade blades. It turned from a hobby into an addiction. I love making knives. It is gratifying to turn raw materials into something useful, and to know people appreciate the effort that went into making their knife.
