HERMAN ACHTERHUIS / Achter Knives
Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a Dealer for Herman Achterhuis of Achter Knives
Herman Achterhuis believes in the value of creating something by hand, therefore he does not use any CNC equipment in crafting his knives. He strives to make knives that are recognizable as well as being very high in Precision Fit and Finish. Herman was blessed to have well known Knife Makers Sebastian Borka and John Gray as his mentors. I believe we can expect great things from Achter Knives in the future!
