About Us

Pride, Passion, Hard Work, Amazing Results

We are people who take pride in our work. Creating quality products is our passion, not just a hobby.

We make sure each product we build is done according to its needs. And while this grew out of a school project, it has become something much bigger.

We are currently working primarily on knives, but will be branching out into other areas soon.
