My name is Kurt Swearingen and I specialize in making beautiful yet functional Handcrafted knives at my traditional workshop in Cedar Crest, New Mexico.

More than just a knife...

Before considering a custom hunting or camping knife from my collection, please feel free to learn about the creativity, materials, and special techniques that go into every knife I make. Rest assured that many hours of meticulous crafting and testing ensure that each knife is a highly functional and completely dependable tool, as well as the kind of unique and highly desirable work of art you'll want to pass down from generation to generation.

A lifelong adventure...

When you hold one of my custom knives, my greatest hope is that it evokes an emotion or a fond memory from a simpler time; that well-worn pocket knife or hunting knife your grandfather used with such reverence. So, let’s start making your own memories!

With memories to come.

Keeping Traditions Alive

Peerless quality and uncompromising attention to detail mean my customers are discerning buyers who need a specific knife for a specific task; I am honored by those explorers, big game hunters and collectors who share my own heartfelt appreciation for the materials, construction and authentic styles of proven outdoor knives.
