Fry Custom Knives



Abilene, Texas, USA
I make most of my knives by the stock removal method, although I do occasionally forge a knife. Visit my “How I Build a Knife” blog post for a step-by-step picture tutorial of the knife making process. I heat treat my own blades in a digitally controlled kiln and use dry ice for cryogenic tempering. Steels I use include 1080/1084 carbon steel, D2 tool steel, CM 154 and 440C stainless steels, and occasionally files or other “found” steel.
