My proposals are to promote the work of up and coming new makers,
both here in the UK and abroad, whose work is already at a certain level and with the potential to improve further still.
PAUL MASON. UK
It was last year at the Midland Game Fair, where I was exhibiting, that I was approached by Paul who showed me examples of his work, asking for my opinion. He explained that he had only made around 5-6 folders to date and yet they showed the workmanship and skill of a maker with far more experience. To say I was impressed is an understatement !
This is a maker with a great future who, like myself, shares a love of "slipjoint" folders and fills a void in the UK as someone with the potential to make this type of folder to an extremely high standard. These knives are truly exceptional considering Paul has only just started his knifemaking journey.
I am proud and pleased to be the Dealer for Paul's knives

Andy Martland. UK
I first met Andy at a show I was exhibiting at and was immediately impressed with his work and genuine desire to offer a superior knife.
His attention to detail and overall first-rate workmanship made it very easy for me to agree to become a dealer for his knives.
I am so impressed with Andy's work that I have asked him to make the CKHunter
Congratulations Andy on winning the Award for Best Knife in the Cat.2 Competition at KNIVES UK 2010.
Congratulations due again to Andy on winning "Best in Show" award at KNIVES UK 2013.

Due to the ever increasing interest in this website, I find myself struggling to answer queries & emails as promptly as I would like. Because this is still a part-time venture and I like to offer a personal, one on one service, time is sometimes an issue - so please accept my apologies in advance for any delays in replying. I will reply as soon as possible and, as always, strive to offer a professional service. Thank you to everyone for your continued support and custom.
