Many switchblade knife collectors have evolved or taken their collections to amazing new heights.
Often referred to as “ knife art,” these collectors have made investments in their high-end collections.
The custom makers arena has really grown over the last 10-15 years…with such makers as Jeff Harkins, Joe Kious, Paul Panak (BURN), Anthony Marfione, Reese Weiland, etc.; really too many to name.
Even the blades vary from high-polished grinds to custom Damascus by Chad Nichols, Rob Thomas, & Jerry Rados, to name a few.
All materials have really become quite amazing – Scrimshaw Ivory, jeweled buttons, Gold hardware, etc.
Truly an Art form…a functioning Art form!
