Kirby Lambert Orion MGT Damascus Folding Knife

April 29th, 2011 - corwin99

Kirby Lambert’s awesome Custom Orion MGT Damascus.. it seems all I ever talk about is Kirby Lambert when it comes to Custom knives… that’s not entirely true, but he is one of the finest Canadian Knifemakers in the tactical market and (I know I say this every time) this is my favourite piece to come out of his shop.

Kirby Lambert Snap IKBS Flipper Knife

March 27th, 2010 - corwin99

The latest folder from Kirby is an awesome IKBS flipper called the Snap. This particular example is a prototype, and the very first snap and IKBS folder that Kirby has ever made, and a very impressive one at that. I’m really glad that Kirby took the dive into IKBS!

Kirby Lambert Justice Folder Desert Ironwood

March 25th, 2009 - corwin99


My latest Kirby Folder is another fantastic peice, and being a design that he introduced at the 2009 CKG show, not too many people own one yet. This is his Justice folder, in Desert Ironwood burl with front and rear carbon fiber bolsters. This is a huge folder!

Kirby Lambert Mother of Pearl Damascus Incinerator

July 11th, 2008 - corwin99

My lastest acquisition from the mind of Kirby Lambert, this Mother of Pearl Damascus Incinerator folder is both bold and breathtaking. Imposing in size at 4″ in blade length and an overall length of 8 3/4″, this knife not only looks, but feels the part.

Kirby Lambert Mini-Tac Damascus Knife

October 14th, 2007 - corwin99


This was my very first Kirby Lambert knife, and is an awesome peice. I love it and will likely never sell it, since it is very dear to me. It is not only my first Kirby Lambert knife, but the first fully custom knife I ever ordered, and the first of many I have purchased from Kirby. He is now my favourite knife maker!

Kirby Lambert Whar Gouge Grip Knife [video]

July 23rd, 2007 - corwin99


Before I got my Spearpoint with the Mammoth handles, this was my favourite Kirby knife. This Whar is unique from other Whar folders because the blade on this one is slightly curved on the spine near the tip… Only two like this exist, and the other one belongs to James Hetfield of Metallica!

Kirby Lambert Mammoth Spearpoint [video]

June 24th, 2007 - corwin99


Two years in the making! This knife was not easy for Kirby to make me as he had to go to where he had his quenching set up in a different province to do it. He tried several steels to get a good hamon on a small blade and finally got this result, and it looks fantastic! This is easily my favourite knife in my collection, period.

This is a Custom Kirby Lambert Inferno that was custom made to my specs. Beautiful hand-rubbed S30V blade with Kirby’s signature spider maker’s mark, and Annodized Titanium framelock handles, with a window exposing a beautiful peice of black-lip mother of pearl.

Kirby Lambert Claw Gouge-Grip Knife

This is one of Kirby’s first Gouge-Grip folders. As I can tell he doesn’t make too many of these types of grips anymore, but did for a short period, and I really like them. I remember the day that Kirby emailed me to show me this new design he had, and I ordered one immediately.
