Welcome to Smith Custom Knives. I have been a full time maker since 1993 and began engraving in 1994. All of my knives are made using the stock removal method, with the preferred steel being ATS-34 with a hand rubbed finish. Damascus steels, from a variety of skilled-forgers, are available in a variety of patterns. Natural handle materials are preferred, such as fossil ivory, stone, and Mother of Pearl. Folders with a variety of mechanisms such as rear lock, locking liner, and buttonlock are what I enjoy making. With one of a kind pieces being what I prefer personally.
