My name is Mark. My company is called Raven Custom Knives.
I have been making knives for 10 years and I am the sole work horse of my studio.
My approach is to treat every knife build and customer individually so there is a clear understanding that whatever knife I happen to be working on, it is 100% customized for you and we collaborated together to get you a truly customized result.
Nothing in my studio shop is mass produced or laser cut, all knives are literally one of a kind. My philosophy is to provide you with a high quality tool that is both fully functional, aesthetically pleasing, and at a great value. I work with local chef's and my customers who put my knives into real world applications and use their feedback so I am constantly improving my knife quality and utility. My best knife is always the one I will be making next.
All Raven knives are created by forging, stock removal, or a combination of both. Stainless steel knives are typically created using stock removal methods where the laminated, pattern welded or Damascus knives are created with a combination of both hand forging and stock removal.
