Steven Kelly Handmade Knives
If you haven't heard of SK Knives, it's time to start paying attention. Steven Kelly isn't new to the game and his designs aren't that mainstream but they definitely should be. He's been making knives since 2000 and has concentrated on tactical folders since 2009. That's given him ample time to conceive an array of excellent folders for both everyday carry and tactical operations. Each is 100% handmade in his own shop and Mr. Kelly even performs his own heat treating. Differential edge quenching is his preferred method--having the steel near the edge harder than the steel near the spine. This provides the best combination of edge holding ability and toughness in most applications.
The Ranger Knife is the first in the Sportsman Series from SK Knives, designed for outdoor and camping applications. It was built upon two ideas, simple and functional. From the farmhouse to the backwoods, the Ranger is an easy carry with a full grain sheath made in Montana. It features a 3.75" drop point blade made from 52100 carbon steel with a brushed satin/natural two-tone finish. The handle is milled burgundy Micarta with a polished finish and TiConnector titanium hardware. Its ergonomic shape allows it to be used all day without hand fatigue. The knife ships in a custom leather drop sheath and has an absolutely bombproof feel in the hand. Handmade in Bigfork, MT.

Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
Micarta is a compressed layered composite sealed within a thermosetting plastic which creates a strong, attractive material that is impervious to water.
Custom knives are hand made in shops around the world. These will typically be extremely high quality and one of a kind pieces meticulously built by the craftsman.
