About the Maker

Hastings Knife Works

Each Hastings - Parrish knife is traditionally handcrafted. Each is hand - forged to shape, free - ground, individually heat-treated, and carefully fitted with its handle. Some of the methods employed in production were utilized hundreds of years ago in Scandinavia, Asia, Europe by armorers and weapon makers. HASTINGS KNIVES were carried in Viet Nam, and now in the Iraq War, and are being used and colected across North America as well as many foreign countries. They are excellent companion pieces for all sporting equipment. To the best of our ability, they are designed and executed to achieve their proposed function.

Hastings, Don

Don Hastings became a full time knife maker in 1972 Don developed his line of models by trial and error. He sought out the advice of hunters and sportsmen. This advice he incorporated into the hunting model. He did the same thing with the fighting models, by seeking out the advice from soldiers and others that had knowledge in the use of fighting knives. The large Bowies are based on old designs that have been around for many years. Don helped to found the American Bladesmith Society. He was inducted into the ABS Bladesmithing Hall of Fame in 1996. Don passed away in 1986.
