About the Maker
I'm Brad Southard, the owner, operator and head shop monkey at Southard Knives and Tools LLC. As a knife and toolmaker, I strive to make the finest quality cutting and working instruments. A knife is a part of everyone's daily life, whether you're using it in the kitchen to slice up a tomato, opening a letter or using your grandfather's old slipjoint to carve a stick while sipping whisky on the back porch. It's also important to remember that a knife was one of man's first tools and is still the most useful item we interact with each and every day. I recognize the legacy and importance it has for all of us, and through my craft I facilitate an evolution of the knife through art and engineering into a piece of functional artwork that can withstand the rigors of every day use. My custom knife line is done one hundred percent by my hands in my shop. Currently I'm not accepting any new orders, but I hope to open my order book again soon. My Performance series of knives are produced through the finest modern manufacturing techniques, mixed with a decent amount of my handwork. These are made one hundred percent in the United States of America. I have a line of production knives made in collaboration with Spyderco, an amazing company based in Golden, Colorado. Very skilled workers make these knives with premium quality materials.
Spyderco was founded in 1976 by Sal and Gail Glesser. Initially, the company focused on selling our first product the Tri-Angle Sharpmaker™,primarily at fairs and trade shows around the country. In 1981, the Glessers put down roots in Golden, Colorado and introduced the first Spyderco folding knife. That knife pioneered the concept of a round hole in the blade for one-handed opening, a clip on the handle for carry at the top of the pocket, and the option of a serrated edge for aggressive cutting performance. Those features revolutionized the knife industry and literally defined the form of the modern folding knife.Since then, Spyderco has steadily grown to become one of the leaders in the cutlery industry. In addition to a worldwide distribution network and manufacturing resources in the U.S., Japan, Taiwan, Italy, and China, our innovation has also earned us an impressive portfolio of patents, trademarks, and industry awards. More importantly, it has allowed us to earn the trust and loyalty of countless thousands of dedicated knife users around the world—an audience to whom we are extremely grateful.
