About Ken: Ken is the real deal. Inducted into the Blade Magazine Hall of Fame in 2008, he is recognized as one of the most innovative and successful knife designers of our time. In 1996 he created the first commercially successful assisted opening mechanism that many knives use today.
Downing Upswept Hunter: 3-7/8″ Mirror polished ATS-34 blade with ivory handle and scrimshaw scrollwork. Includes tooled leather shealth.

About Tom: Knifemakers Guild member since 1982 from Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. I made my first knife in 1979. I have enjoyed making knives for over 30 years and has found it rewarding in many ways. I have been fortunate tomeet many fine people from all over the world, both makers and just folks with a common interest in handmade knives. Originally, my goal was to be able to make a custom knife as ell as the known makers of the time. It was a challenge then, and of course, it still is today. I try to put my bset work into each piece, to make each piece unique and to create a knife that satisfies the imagination of each customers.
Folts Fancy Sultan – 3.8″ blade of CPM 154cm, 58-60HRC. Handle of custom Tim Kipps acrylic, zirconium backspacer with crystaline texturing.
About Alan: When it comes to knives, Alan knows all about giving back to the people. He climbed the ranks in college by entering knives in art shows. Since then he’s been adamant about teaching and passing on the skills of custom knife making to others. He specializes in one-of-a-kind fixed blades that have great ergonomics and sleek futuristic designs.
D’Holder Hunter: 440C mirror polish 5-1/2″ blade, hand-tooled woven leather shealth, nickel silver pommel-redmaple handle, blood amber, African backwood spacers.
About D’: “For many years, I had done custom gun work as a hobby, and was asked to make a knife for a gentleman for whom I had built a custom rifle. The rest is history, I guess, since I haven’t built a gun since I sold that first knife. The price was $8. That first knife was built in 1966 in Denver, CO…My specialty is fancy using knives with an occasional bowie thrown in for balance. I believe that the important aspects of knifemaking are craftsmanship, top drawer materials, and a steadfast work ethic…Over the years, my shop has been open to almost anyone who wanted to take the time to come by. Currently, over 75 makers of custom knives give me credit for strong influence on their work. It is my opinion that I got far more from them, than they ever got from me.”
Kommer Hunter: 4.25″ length blade of 440C mirror polished. The handle is fossiized walrus jaw bone. This exquisite hunter from Russ Kommer eatures a full tapered tang, 416 stainless steel bolsters with dovetails and Corby bolts for the scale. The bolsters feature fine engraving by David Sheenan.
About Russ: To say Russ is an avid outdoorsman is a bit of an understatement. A professional fishing and hunting guide, he started making knives when one of his clients brought him a custom knife and dressed the entire moose – without sharpening it. Since then he’s made it his duty to build the kind of blades only he would use.
“Art Deco” Folder: 3.25″ blade of Damasteel “Twist” steel. Pen shell handle with inlaid silver and 14k gold.
About Ken: Ever since he was a kid, if he needed a knife, Ken just made his own. His first one was built from a sawblade at the kitchen table using a vise, files and sandpaper. Needless to say, he’s gone on to create more highly designed knives that have won him 11 BLADE Show awards in 7 consecutive years, including two best folders awards and one best folder of the year. Ken also is a prolifiic inventor with his name on numerous utility patents.
Two Large Tighe Tac Twos: 3-7/8″ inch Compound ground blades RWL 34, Drop Point and Tanto Blades, Button Lock Flippers, Anodized and Stone Washed Titanium Scales on handles, STBS bearing system and all the other great features included in the CRKT version.
About Brian: There are edged artisans…and then there’s Brian Tighe. Canadian “Renaissance Man,” he is practiced in the art of metallurgy, photography and tool and die making. It’s what helped him make the leap from a creator of high quality folding knives into the top 10 elite.
Bose Eureka Jack: Tony’s standard quote applies – “I don’t design knives, I bring old knies back from the grave.” Tony considers the Eureka Jack to be the most elegant of all Jack knives. Extremely rare today, the pattern dates back to the great makers of Sheffield, England. Tony added the Wharncliff pen blade to make the knife more versatile. The Eureka Jack is 3-5/8″ closed and 3.0 oz. The Spear blade is 2.75″ with the Warncliff blade 1.95″. The Spear blade is made from 154CM and features a glazed finish with a cut swedge and French (long pull) nail mark. The Warncliff Pen Blade is also made from 154CM, features a glazed finish with a common swedge and standard nail mark. The backsprings are 154CM, with an extension spring used for the Wharncliffe blade. The smooth ebony handle features a pinned stainless diamond sheild, glazed finish stainless bolsters and stainless liners milled for improved blade fall. All featues that Tony Bose knives are famous for.
The Companion Case/Bose Eureka Jack was crafted by longtime Case artisan Paul Lipps. A one-of-a-kind, it features genuine stag handles, 154CM Spear and Wharncliffe blades, milled liners, stainless bolsters and pinned shield.
About Tony: Tony Bose fashioned his first knife in 1972 from a power hack saw blade he’d received from a friend. He’d work to perfect his skills for years before pursuing a fulltime custom knife making career in 1990. Tony’s impact was quickly felt across the industry, winning Best Folding Knife Awards from the 1994 East Coast Custom Knife Show and the 1995 Blade Show with his own fivebladed Stockman designs. Today, Tony’s work continues as a member of the coveted Knifemaker’s Guild, blending vintage patterns with modern steel blades, stainless steel bolsters and springs to an unmistakable fit and finish. His work attracts enthusiasts from around the world who often wait years for their knives to be completed to his satisfaction. His knife making talent accentuates his true passion for his craft and his reputation as a trusted businessperson, spirited philanthropist, devoted husband and father. Tony’s son, Reese, is also an accomplished custom maker. The two carry on their knife making tradition from their workshop in Shelburn, Indiana.
Burnley M69: Framelock folder, 6.5″ OAL, with caged bearings. 3″ CPM154 blade with Zirwash finish, 59HRC. The handle is a titanium frame with green canvas micarts inlay and bronze pivot rings with titanium hardware. Includes BRNLY brand display pouch.
The M69 came out of a 365 sketch project (which, of course, has taken me well over a year). Every day I try to do a new knife sketch. Sometimes I come up with models that I plan to build, and other times my sketches are just exercises in design. The goal with the #BRNLY365 project was to give me the chance to continue being creative even when I was busy with production.
The M69 (my 69th sketch in the #BRNLY365 series) is an evolution of the Squid–a small EDC folder that’s been a staple of my custom line and in production with CRKT since 2015. I wanted to keep some of the same feel and design language while carrying it over into a slightly larger, task-oriented folder.
Burnley Kwaiken: Liner Lock Flipper Folder, 8.5″ OAL, with caged bearings. 3.5″ CPM 154 blade Zirwash finish, 59HRC. Green Canvas Micarta; Bronze Bolsters; Titanium Liners; Titanium Hardware. Includes BRNLY Brand Display Pouch.
The Kwaiken Flipper was based off of my Kwaiken Classic–a cord-wrapped fixed blade. The Kwaiken Classic was a model that I designed to carry myself. It was almost entirely purpose driven with a useful blade length and shape, a secure neutral handle, and a flexible and effective carry system.
In 2009, Böker asked if I would design a folding knife based off of the Kwaiken Classic. While each model I make has its own following, the Kwaiken Flipper seems to be consistently popular across the board. If I had to hazard a guess as to why it has done so well, I would say it boils down to design simplicity.
About Lucas: Lucas Burnley is founder and principal of Burnley Knives. For him, knives are a personal expression of independence, self-reliance and fun – ideas and philosophies he began formulating as a knife-toting 7-year old. He designs primarily in a style that he considers to be “contemporary tactical,” blending clean modern lines with tactical origins. Above all, he believes that utility shouldn’t come at the cost of beauty. He loves many aspects of the craft, but is happiest conceptualizing and prototyping new ideas. Along with his custom line, Lucas works closely with production companies Böker and CRKT, making his designs available to a wider audience.
Appalachian Hunter: 6-3/4″ overall length, 3″ blade of stainless steel ladder pattern Damascus. Handle is 416 stainless steel bolsters engraved by Ed Van Hoy with mammoth ivory bark, tan with crackling. Includes brown leather fitted sheath.
About Ed: Looking at the shelves in his shop, you’d almost think Ed specializes in awards rather than knives. But that just comes with the territory when you are pushing the limits with your designs. Just a few of his many highlights are: the A.G. Russell Most Innovative Folding Knife, Most High Tech Design-S.I.C.A.C, Best Fantasy Knife in the Ohio Valley Knife Show 2005, and Knife of the Year at the Blade Show 2004. Ed is living proof that if you love what you do, the rest comes easy.
Santoku Noir: 6″ Blade of 12C27 Sandwick. Handle made from single layered carbon fiber and orange G10. “The Santoku is my favorite kitchen knife both to make and to use. The kind of tool you simply ‘melt together’ with when you use it for a while.”
About Jesper: When Jesper needs to test a design, he only has to step into his own backyard. The harsh elements and conditions of the fjords and forest in his native Denmark do the rest. When he ws starting out no one was making the kind of knives he wanted to design so he learned by trial and error. Apparently his efforts paid off give his IF Award in 2013 for one of the Top European Designs.
Zinker Custom Urban Trapper:
Liner lock flipper, stonewashed CP154 RC61. Woodgrain fiber.
This design was inspired by the trapper Brad carried in his youth.
About Brad: Brad Zinker is a custom knifemaker from Florida and voting member of the Knifemakers Guild. He makes some of the thinnest knives available and has a couple models currently in production with Boker. They are truly unique knives in the industry and the quality is second to none.
Customized Williams Shinbu: Shinbu designed by James Williams. 9.25″ blade of YK30, high mirror polish, HRC 57-59. Custom installed 15 (3/4″) Veff Serrations with highly polished, surgically sharp, Conve’ffd Edge. Engraved with Tom’s name and the date that he embellished the knife.
Customized Nirk Tighe: Brian Tighe Design. 3.875″ blade of AUS8, high mirror polish, HRC 58-59. Handle is 420J2 stainless with Tinitride accents. Custom installed 4 (3/4) Veff Serrations with highly polished, surgically sharp, Conve’ffd Edge. Chrome polished blade spine, hand filed half-round jimping throughout the entire border of the knife scales. Engraved with Tom’s name and the date that he embellished the knife.
About Tom: Without Tom many would be walking around with dull blades. The Edgeologist, as he is commonly known, began sharpening knives in an industry that demands it: meat cutting. It wasn’t long before he started applying his techniques to helpothers keep their blades sharp with his Veff Sharp Tools. Many CRKT knives are also indebted to Tom for is original Veff Serrations and the Beff Flat Top Serrations which have proven to be the most efficient serration patterns to date.
Ultratech: Designed by Tony Marfione. Out the front, two-tone double vapor blast blade finish, M390 blade steel, custom hollow ground blade by Tony, Mil-Spec anondized alloy handles.
About Tony: In 1994, just a year after the first prototypes were created in Anthony and Susan Marfione’s apartment, the release of the UDT marked the official beginning of Microtech. The company began renting a building in Vero Beach, Florida, which quickly expanded to nearby empty buildings as the demand for a larger facility became apparent. Since then, Microtech has carved itself a place in history by building a long-standing tradition of innovation and quality that leaves an impression on its customers.
ASP Custom Ser. #62: 12-c-27 Sanvic blade steel, titanium liners and pocket clip. Black checkered G10 handle scales. Engraved scale – Amerian Knife and Tool Institute.
About Steve: For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a knife permanently attached to my hand. Growing up in Florida, I’d use it for hunting, fishing, scuba diving, spearfishing and underwater salvage. So it only made perfect sense that I started designing knives on my own. Special note about Steve – He was AKTI’s first individual member back in 1997!
Crossbones: CPM 154 blade steel, 6AL4V titantium handles
About Jeff: One fateful day in 2005, I walked into Ken Onion’s shop in Kaneokhi, Hawaii, and never left. Well, that’s not entirely true, but he’s certainly and an impact as a world-class knifemaker and I’ve learned a thing or two along the way. I’m a detail oriented guy, and by that I mean I’m an absolute perfectionist. I hope it shows in my designs.
Buck 110 Inspiration Pained Pony: Inspiration for this knife came from Painted Pony’s special relationship with the Buck Family. Buck 110 Auto with white pearl, red coral and jett onyx handle with a beautiful wooden case.
