FLORIDA KNIFEMAKERS' ASSOCIATION
Hello, this is Jim Elliott and I thank you for taking the time to look at this web page. I have been a member of the Florida Knifemakers' Association since it's start in 1977 and a member of the Knifemakers Guild since 1998. I make knives one at a time using ATS-34, 440-C, D2 and various Damascus steels. When it comes to handle materials natural stuff like fossil ivories, bone, horn, exotic woods and pearl work best for me. I make liner lock folders, some automatics, hunters, skinners, and fillet knives. I also make the sheaths that go with them. Check the pictures below and give me a call or write concerning your particular interest. Custom orders are accepted.
