Custom Knives & Bladesmithing
since 2020

About Me

Hello. My name is Warren Thacker and I make handmade knives.
I strive to make high quality, functional, and beautiful blades for hunting, camping, or general use out of first-rate materials that are tried and true. I am working to create some standard models of my knives to offer, and I also make custom knives for customers.

High Quality Custom Handmade Knives

Effective Designs

Ergonomic, stylish, and functional designs.

High Quality Materials

High carbon steels and premium woods for your knife.

Passion for Excellence

I am meticulous and aim to create a knife you will be proud to own and use.

Personal Touch

Each knife is handmade and unique.


I have been making knives for almost 2 years. While new to knifemaking, I have been a craftsman for most of my life. I have worked as a carpenter, designer, and general "do-it yourself" handyman for many years. My attention to detail has made me well-suited to take up knifemaking and create some beautiful blades.

Questions & answers

What do you mean by "handmade"?
"Handmade" means that these knives are made individually by me. The steel is primarily forged to shape or some knives are made by stock removal. Then the steel is finished with a belt grinder and sandpaper. The handles are shaped using belts and sandpaper, and the sheaths are all hand stitched and made to fit each knife.
Where can I order or purchase these knives?
You can contact me directly through the "Contact" section of the page. In the spring of 2023, I plan to get out to some local farmer's markets or craft shows and you can see what I have there. If you sign up for the newsletter, I will update you on where I will be and when.
Can I design my own knife?
Yes, I do currently do custom projects for customers. If you have a drawing of a knife or pictures of a knife you would like, just let me know in the "Contact" section and we can start the process. I have some handle materials on hand and can find or create a custom handle for your knife. Or, I can come up with a custom design based on your preference. Currently, I primarily work on fixed blade knives.
Where can I see other knives you have made?
You can check out any of my social media links in the menu bar at the top of the page or at the footer of the page.
Do you offer classes?
At the moment I do not offer knifemaking classes. I hope this will be something I can offer in the future, but currently I do not have the facilities to do that.
