HOW MY KNIVES ARE MADE
My intention in making knives is to make something that is used and not placed on a shelf. With that in mind, I don't use a high polish finish as it's not necessary on a using knife. I can admire a nice satin, hand sanded or polished finish but that isn’t the direction I go with my work.
I make knives by the stock removal method and after using a variety of steels I have settled on CPM 3V as my standard steel.
My steel knives are profiled one at a time, hollow ground, sent to heat treat and then finish ground when I get them back.
I use Peter's Heat Treat for my knives, they do a fantastic job and treat them with liquid nitrogen.
I use brass pins and 2 ton epoxy to affix the handle scales to the tang along with drilled holes in the tang so the epoxy flows through the tang to both handle scales.
Sometimes I use titanium as a blade material for customers who want a really light and non corrosive blade material. Titanium doesn't harden like steel so I weld tungsten carbine on one side to help with edge retention.
All knives come with a kydex sheath that has eyelets spaced for most standard attachments.
My knives come with a warranty. If you break it, I'll fix it or make another one. If you go out and destroy the knife to make a YouTube video then I won't replace it.
"Ken designs and builds knives based on his experiences and the experiences of those he trusts, which has led to a line that is second to none in rugged reliability."
"THX KEN - For making me this awesome Combat Options fixed blade. What a knife and she just begs to be used. Thx again Ken!!"
"Rock on Brother. Looks great!"
