About The Member

Welcome to Hunter Handmade Knives; I’m Frank Hunter.

I make my knives using the stock removal method.  That is, I take a template of one of my knife designs, place it on a piece of steel bar stock, and cut it out with a bandsaw.  I then refine the profile of the knife by hand sanding and with the use of my disc and belt sanders.  After heat treating, I grind the knife to its final shape.  I make the handles for my knives in my shop using various wood and synthetic materials.  I mostly use AEB-L, and CPM 154 steel for my knives.

I am fortunate that I live close to Gene Baskett who has been making knives for over 30 years and in 2016 was re-elected President of the Knifemakers Guild.  Gene has been invaluable in helping and guiding me in my quest to become a quality knifemaker.

I am currently focused on making fixed blades.  I have my Terciopelo model and make a couple variations of neck/EDC knives.  The knives I make are the best that I am capable of producing and with each one I try to improve on my fit and finish of the knife.
