About the Maker
Visit this maker's website: Moulton Knives. "I started making Custom Knives as a Full-Time maker/designer in 1991. I currently use CPM-154CM, a VERY new Version of the standard 154CM steel. It is a very clean powdered version of the standard 154CM,still in its primary developmental stage. I am one of very few knifemakers that have access to this steel, until it is through the development & analysis process. I also occasionally use the standard ATS-34. I also use Damascus steel forged by some of my friends, in my creations.All of my knives are made freehand. That is, I do not incorporate the use of mills, lathes, surface grinders, etc....in my shop, there are just a couple of basic belt grinders, disc grinders, a drill press and a band saw. (I feel that as long as I can make a modest living building knives with a minimum of mechanical assistance, relying instead on my own hand craftsmanship then that is the way I prefer it). And I hope that this manner of making knives will in the long run give my knives a better value when I am long gone. I strive, above all, to build a high quality product that the discriminating buyer will be proud to own. All knives are created by stock removal and are hollow ground, most all of them having tapered tangs and dovetailed bolsters. Then, with each piece I create, I offer a personal satisfaction guarantee because I stand behind my work and it's underlying quality is paramount.I strive to create designs that are unique in the custom knife market. I want people to know when they see one of my knives in a collection, "that's a Moulton"! For me, this is the ultimate satisfaction I get from this work."
