KEN VEHIKITE ~ BLACK ROC KNIVES
I discovered Ken on Instagram where he has a HUGE following and was really impressed with the distinctive look of his work. Ken lives in Indiana and last year he had a severe Stroke. He has been working hard and is now able to spend a little time each week in his shop ~ but it will be some time yet before he starts making knives full time. Ken does not use any CNC or Computer Equipment and creates his knives One at a Time, all within his own Shop. Ken’s Knives usually sell out on IG in Minutes!
