About the Maker
Hawk, Grant & Gavin
Grant Hawk and his son Gavin of Idaho City, Idaho started making knives in 1994. Grant had just ended a 20 year career as a prospector and manufacturer of mining equipment. "I spent years making everything I needed out of anything I could find," Grant said. "I believe those experiences helped me to see solutions lying below the surface. To me, designing a knife is much like prospecting because it seems more a matter of discovery than an act of creation. The art of the prospector is to discover the unknown through the application of logic, hard work and luck. Whenever unrelated ideas are found to mesh perfectly, luck is playing its part and every prospector knows, it's better to be lucky than smart." After attending the Oregon Knife Collectors Association Show in 1994, Grant and Gavin were not only inspired to become knifemakers, but were determined to make a better folder, the result of which is their custom D.O.G. folder, now available from CRKT in a production model.
Marfione Custom Knives
Anthony (Tony) Marfione founded MicroTech Knives in 1994. In addition to running MicroTech, Tony also makes custom models and custom versions of various Microtech production styles, which he markets through Marfione Custom Knives, L.L.C. These knives not only offer the quality of MicroTech, but are limited and have the custom refinements designed and applied by Tony. Such pieces are highly sought after by collectors and are destined to appreciate in value due to their unique features and limited quantities.
Beginning in 1994, out of an apartment and later a storage shed in Vero Beach, Florida, Microtech Knives was created. More than 20 years later, now headquartered in Western North Carolina, Microtech Knives operates with that same mission at the forefront of everything we do. Throughout the evolution of growth and change, our goal is to maintain the highest standards of quality possible. Microtech utilizes exclusively American-Made manufacturing, materials and labor. Every component we use is developed within the United States and more than 95% of all our components are manufactured in-house, by us directly. Because we use only the best quality materials, and to ensure our commitment to excellence, every Microtech knife is backed by our Lifetime Warranty. Every knife produced in our facility is sharpened by hand. Rigorous testing, research and development ensure that we meet impeccably close tolerances and extremely high standards of quality. We aim to continuously evolve and push the boundaries of expectation, delivering products that set the standard for precision cutlery. From all of us at the Microtech family, we thank each of our customers, as well as those who serve us and our country through the United States military, law enforcement and first responder services. Designed for exactly that reason, our Service Personnel Program aims to provide the best possible tools to those who rely on them the most. It’s because of your commitment to uncompromising quality that we are able to pursue our mission of creating the world’s best cutting tools.
