Aaron started making knives more than a decade ago under the guidance of his father in law ~ John W. Smith. Aaron has built a reputation on a legacy of precision fit and finish.
Aaron recently served in the United States Navy in a Visit, Board, Seach and Seizure team. The VBSS teams are responsible for stopping, boarding and searching any suspicious vessel searching for drugs, weapons, terrorists, etc. He developed a line of Combat knives termed the VBSS line, that would stand up to extreme use and abuse.

This is a new Design from Aaron, an SMK 1 Framelock Folder
This knife has a Hand Rubbed blade of CMP-154CM steel, the blade has a precision ground blade with an aggressive tip and a mid height hollow grind that provides a sharp cutting edge but retains the strength of the thick steel.
This version has Carbon Fiber handles and a full Titanium Frame and Titanium Bolsters that have been Glass Bead Blasted. Aaron has done something new though, the Lockside Frame is flat for easier carry and reduced friction when extracting the blade from your pocket.
A Very strong and reliable Framelock. A thick G-10 Backspacer adds stability to the frame.
Aaron provides exceptional value on his custom knives!
