Kris Bell, Bladesmith

His favorite knives to make are custom orders; taking the ideas that a client would like to have in a knife-their wants and needs, and turning those ideas into reality. He guarantees his work to be exactly what a client wants in a knife.

Details of each blade may differ but there are some things that are always consistent; attention to detail, unsurpassed quality and a razors edge.

Kris is self trained, taking every moment to learn more about the various aspects of his craft. When he started this journey, he began by building the necessary equipment. He designed and built his forge, then designed and built his 2″x72″ grinder. He adds necessary equipment along the way as he goes, always keeping his shop fitted with the appropriate tools to create his designs.
