KEN VEHIKITE ~ BLACK ROC KNIVES
I am very excited to feature this new Maker. 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 started making knives in 2013 – he 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!
