Jake describes his start to knife making this way: “I’m an 80’s kid, and always searching for information. I started making knives back in 1990 in my backyard, pounding out knives on a huge chunk of steel with a framing hammer and fence post nails. Went from there to working in the summertime with my best bud at his dad’s blacksmith ship in Virginia City, NV. From there on out I was hooked. I started professionally making and selling knives in 2003 and have been on a roll ever since.”
Thousands of Jake’s knives have already come off the machines and into the hands of users and collectors – from a variety of fixed blades, to a popular “A” series folders (A8, A10, A15), to the gold standard in knife making, the Kwaiback with all its variations in size (MK Ultra), handle materials and finishes. Jake is always coming up with something new, ut one thing always remains the same – he is relentless about giving customers Rugged, Reliable, and Precision-Engineered knives.
