Custom Handmade Bushcraft, Hunting, and EDC knives, made to last.

Jeff makes his knives based off his own designs, using 1095, 80CRv2 and a few other high carbon steels. He also uses high strength epoxy and flared tubing pins to attach the handles for durability and a nice solid feel. Jeff also does his own precision heat treating in house with a digital oven and appropriate quench oil to ensure maximum hardness and toughness of the blades. His knives are built to withstand heavy use and will last a lifetime.

Halfrich knives are geared towards use, he makes knives that will work in several applications from tactical to the hunting field, and investment-grade knives on request. His knives are made first and foremost for performance and user comfort. They are cutting instruments designed specifically for a given task. You'll notice that the bevels are ground thin and the cutting edge is very fine. Sharpness and performance exceeds most of my customers' expectations. The greatest challenge he has found in knifemaking is blending comfort with form and function, so what you'll find in his knives is a reflection of taste in design, and a knife that performs an intended task with great ease.
