About the Maker
I began making knives in November of 2002. Due to my background in law enforcement, I’ve always enjoyed making the smaller concealed carry sized knives. Knives that will actually be used instead of being stuck in a safe. The ones that I make are generally the same ones that I would carry at work, on a SWAT call or working in plain clothes. Since I grew up hunting and fishing, I also make a few that are suited for that role. Since I generally specialize in making using knives for personal defense, they usually have a swedge on the blade. My knives can be ordered without a swedge or you can have a fully sharpened swedge on some models, it’s all up to the customer. All of my knives are made out of CPM154 steel from Crucible Steel and are heat treated by Peters Heat Treating. Occasionally I may have some Carpenter CTS-XHP or Crucible 3V but I don't keep enough on hand for orders. You won’t find any polished parts on my knives. They have a machine satin finish which is all that’s necessary for a working knife. Handle material is G-10 or parachute cord. Black G-10 is standard but occasionally I have a few different colors lying around. I don’t use stag or wood. I secure the handles on the blade using hidden bolts and 2 ton epoxy, so they are not removable. Sheaths are made out of kydex. The sheaths have rivets that are spaced to take a TekLok (not supplied) or you can attach an IWB loop or static cord.
Korth Cutlery was formed by brothers Ricardo and Roberto Lala. They started hand-making knives in 1990 and as their work received greater attention and praise they began to expand their efforts and enter knife-making on a full-time basis. The Lala brothers, along with Flavio Ikoma, were the first Brazilian knife makers to adopt S30V as the standard steel for their blades. The Ikoma-Korth Bearing System (IKBS) is incorporated in all Korth and Ikoma folders and balisongs.
I've been making knives since 2008. I'm a former Marine and avid outdoorsman. I've loved knives for my entire life and I'm constantly thrilled to be making them. Most of my designs are geared toward outdoor/tactical use. My products are proudly made in the USA and any outsourcing for waterjet, etc. is also done in the USA. All knives are backed with a guarantee.
