Completely handmade knives and edged tools. I specialise in forged finished blades, demonstrating the skill of the smith as well as being the most practical surface finish for a working knife. I also run courses in knifemaking and 'primitive skills' or ancient technology. Courses range from knifemaking in my workshop to archaeologically based skills in the woods - everything from Iron Age forgework to flint knapping.

As a long time collector and part time dealer of knives, I have over 20 years of experience and many contacts, which I use to offer fine quality knives at affordable prices, specialising in handcrafted knives from the USA.
I am always interested in buying high quality knives, in good condition. At the show I will be running my “KNIFE MART” as in previous years. You may leave your knife with me to sell, (at 15% commission) and then collect your money, or knife, at the end of the day.

Hi I’m Mike from Mike’s knives and I sell, trade and buy custom, collectable and production knives from around the world. I only stock and buy the very best. Knives wanted from a single knife to an entire collection. I personally am a knife book collector so would always be interested in buying any knife related books. Many thanks, Mike.

Knives for bushcraft enthusiasts, fishermen, hunters, chefs and collectors.
All of our knives are made from the very best Carbon or Stainless Steel, with handles and sheaths that are purely to our all English patterns and designs. The woods used come from sustainable sources from many regions of the world with coloured Vulcanised Fibre, Brass, Nickel silver, Moose, Reindeer horn spacers and caps, with different types of ferrules that add extra style to all of our knives. Each knife and its components are gathered and matched at the time of making and will be supplied with an individually made robust vegetable tanned heavyweight leather sheath.

We now have more than 50 designs available. (And you can buy or order knives, blades, wood, and all knife making essentials online).

A bespoke service is available that allows customers to select a knife blade, handle and sheath style which makes that particular knife very personalised and unique (we can apply designs and or monograms if desired to the sheath) and either dyed/polished to various colours or left as plain tanned leather so that customers can finish this process themselves. We are constantly adding new blades and handles along with new ideas and designs. Each knife comes with a certificate to prove its originality and the matching sheath will be stamped and numbered to correspond with the certificate. We have very strict criteria with regard to purchasing and if in doubt I ask for formal ID as the UK has very strict laws about selling to persons under the age of 18 which are published on our website. As an extra facility at our exhibitions we also sell many products from BRISA of Finland.
