John W Smith Custom Knives

John has been a fulltime maker since 1993. He is a member of the exclusive Art Knife Invitational group of 25 makers. He does his own engraving and makes his own Damascus. On his Art Knives John primarily uses Damascus, pearl, fossil Ivories and stone. He embellishes his knives with engraving, gold inlay, mosaic pearl inlays, file work, carving and solid 14K gold screws and thumb studs that he makes himself. His wait list for Art Knives is in years! While best known for his Art Knives John also makes Tactical Folders using the same fantastic level of fit and finish with less exotic materials. You will not find a better knife maker.
