McGinnis, Gerry
I began making knives in the fall of 2004 due to the want for a better hunting knife. I started slow, with files and sandpaper, heat treating with a torch, and just making fixed blades. Eventually I got real tools and a grinder and learned how to use it, and Alan Folts taught me how to make my first linerlock. Soon after I got into folders, I took a liking to flippers and began to teach myself how to make them. I got to the point where they worked well, but weren't as fast as some other makers'. In 2006 I met Lee Williams and Matt Cucchiara, and they taught me how to do internal stops and perfect the detents of my knives. Since then it's been smooth sailing. Today, the majority of my knives are flippers, and I prefer them over all other types of folders for their ease of opening and their functionality allows me to express my creativity in new and interesting ways.When I'm not making knives I'm a student at North Carolina State University and an active hunter, shooter and fisherman.

My name is Jason Burley Stout. I am a machinist / tool and die maker. I use this knowledge in the construction of my knives. Primary blade steels are CPM D-2, D-2 and A-2 Tool steels. For stainless I prefer CPM 154-CM , CPM S30-V and BG-42. All heat treating, sub-zero and cryo treatments are done by me. I use the stock removal method to profile and produce hollow, flat and scandi grinds. All blades are checked on a Rockwell hardness tester for quality. Primary handle materials are canvas micarta and G-10. I also do all the leather and Kydex sheathes. My guarantee is simple. If one of my knives or tools should fail under it's intended use , caused by defect in material or workmanship. I will fix it or replace for free. I build knives that will last for many generations if cared for properly. Thanks to all my customers for your generous support.
