Custom Knives

Steve Smart Custom Knives:

All knives are made of 440C stainless, and O1 tool steel.  If the customer request another type of steel we will discuss the options. .  We have been using  440C and O1 for almost 40 years and they  have  proven to be two of the best knife steels in the world.   Guards, pins and pommels are made  primarily out of stainless and nickel silver.  We do not buy blade blanks and finish them. We grind our own blades out of steel bar stock.  Each knife is truly one of a kind.  We do not over price like some knifemakers. We try to build knives that last a lifetime and for a price that most people can afford.

We use a number of different material for handles including bone, antler, micarta, stabilized  woods from all over the world and numerous synthetic materials.

All knives come with a custom made leather sheath made specifically for each knife.

All Steve Smart Custom knives come with a lifetime guarantee and free sharpening for as long as you own the knife.
