About Us

Hand made custom knives.


I have been making knives since around 2011. I started in my backyard using a piece of railroad track as an anvil, and before I knew it - sold my first piece. Now my hand made knives are known around the world.  I use only types of metal that I trust.  Carbon steels are the preferred material.

"After speaking with several 'knifemakers' about my ideal knife, getting to know Denny was refreshing. He speaks to you like a human being."

All knives are on a 'care for life' basis. I will repair knives if the damage done is within reason. I will replace knives that are beyond repair , pending stress test analysis.
