Dan Graves - The Knife Maker

I have been making knives since 1995 and took my passion full time in 2004.   You can view a sampling of my work within these galleries and post.
I build custom knives to your specifications or based on any of the knives you see here. Either way you’ll receive my lifetime guarantee and a handcrafted knife that will perform for generations.
I’m always available to answer questions or take orders for a knife. Please contact me here for a speedy reply.
