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 my favorite of Aaron’s Framelock Folders ~ called the Tailwind.
This knife has a Hand Rubbed blade of thick CMP-154CM steel, the blade has a beautiful Persian Recurve style with a mid height hollow grind that provides a sharp cutting edge but retains the strength of the thick steel.
This version has upgraded Lightening Strike Carbon Fiber handles and a full Titanium Frame and Titanium Bolsters that have been Glass Bead Blasted. Both extremely tough and lightweight materials.
Aaron has also added some Glow Dots and Custom Filework to the Integral Thumb Ramp for added grip security.
A Very strong and reliable Framelock. Aaron provides exceptional value on his custom knives!
