CUSTOM KNIVES BY TOP UK & USA MAKERS

Custom Knives by ALAN WOOD, PAUL MASON, BEN ORFORD, GUY STAINTHORP, GEOFF HAGUE, and other Top UK makers

are what I aim to provide, as well as up and coming makers. Quality knives by USA makers are a particular interest of mine as well as Japanese and French makers. You will also find some of the higher quality factory knives featured.

 

Thanks to my years of experience and knifemaker/dealer contacts, I have the resources available to obtain most knives. Let me know what you want and, if it is at all possible, I will do my best to obtain it for you.

 

BUYING A KNIFE:

If you wish to buy any of the knives shown on this website (or have any questions) please get in touch either via the CONTACT ME link or my email address.

 

SELLING:

If you have a knife you wish to sell please feel free to get in touch and, if it is of interest to my customers, I will offer you a fair and reasonable price.

If you have a knife to sell on a Commission basis then, if it is of interest to my customers, I will do my best to sell it either through this website or at the various Shows I attend each year.

(see CONTACT ME link for details)
