Selling Custom Knives and knife related books at Arms Fairs in the 1980's is how some of you may remember me. Then, I was known as Books & Blades. From there, I graduated to selling more knives and included selling at Game Fairs, now trading as Blades (less books - more knives). Although always more of a collector than a dealer, I have finally at the request of many customers set up this website. From here onwards I shall trade as www.customknife.co.uk
I try to have knives for sale by our top UK Knifemakers and a selection of fine knives by French and also Japanese makers but my main interest are Custom Knives from the USA, where the concept of the Custom Knife started. My interest seemed to co-incide with the birth of the Custom Knife in the 1970's (if I had known then what I know now, I would have bought as many knives as I could!). Now, the Custom Knife phenomenon has spread all over the world and it would be fair to say we are now witnessing the finest knives ever made.
You are welcome to explore a small part of this fascinating art through this website.
