Phantom Steelworks is the name that Chris Martin releases his knives by, and as you can tell from the name, the knives are pretty bad ass and he makes no apologies for his extremely polorizing designs. The Skin Walker, as this knife is called, is a truly interesting knife design. It features a wharncliff blade, with a very short cutting edge, and the blade only opens to a 55 degree angle.
Custom and Production Tactical Knife Reviews
While not strictly a “custom” knife company, Medford Knife and Tool’s knives are all handmade in-house from the ground-up. They pride themselves on their 100% American-Made pedigree, using primarily American-made tools and parts. This is great is you’re American, but if you’re not, it probably doesn’t matter much but at least should count towards a quality made tool. The Praetorian has become something of a icon in the knife world, and for good reason.
Microtech has been synonymous with high-end, precision machined knives since their inception in 1994 in Vero Beach, Florida. They have collaborated with many high-profile knifemakers, and with this more recent release, the D.O.C., they have collaborated with Strider. The D.O.C. feels like an amalgamation of the Strider SMF and Microtech’s design flare for details.
Brous Blades, run by young Jason Brous, creates some very interesting, and well-made knives. This is one of his Mid-Tech pieces, not the custom one-offs that are about twice the price. Having handled the one-offs, the quality is on par, though the one-offs are much more customized and totally unique.
