Glen Brooks Handcrafted Knives

I make a variety of knives: hunting knives, fishing knives, kitchen cutlery, folders, and just about any custom knife you can dream up. As well as making knives that I design myself, I also make knives that the customer designs. You can submit a pattern of the knife you want built, and I will make it for you. Most of my knives are made from ATS34 stainless steel bar stock, using the stock-removal method. This stainless steel holds its edge up to six times longer than carbon steel.

Mohr Custom Knives

MOHR CUSTOM KNIVES is conveniently located in Jefferson City, Tennessee near Knoxville TN and the Smoky Mountains. The Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and Sevierville area of Tennessee shares our love of traditional, hand-crafted, custom products. MOHR CUSTOM KNIVES consists of father and son team, Rick and Tom Mohr. Rick has spent decades acquiring the skills pertaining to custom knife making while Tom began forging in 2006. He does all the forging and controls the heat treating while Rick does the grinding, shaping, polishing and designing of handles. Most blades are hand forged on-site, using time-honored knife making techniques. Other blades are hand ground by using the stock removal method. This is done by cutting circular saw blades, band saw blades, car leaf-springs or even old files and turning these items into a work of art; a custom, handmade knife that can be used for a lifetime. Both Rick and Tom assemble the knives. Tom is an ABS apprentice and was recently awarded a scholarship to Haywood Community College by the American Bladesmith Society, a scholarship awarded to only three people a year in the United States.
