My name is Dave Evans and I have been making knives since the 1990’s. I started doing artistic blacksmithing around 2005.I am a retired computer programmer and do this pretty much full time since retiring in 2010.
I make knives right here in scenic Tenino, Washington USA. I design, profile, forge, grind, and heat treat them myself. No one else ever touches my work. I make all my knives the old-fashioned way – one at a time, by hand.
I love what I do and everything I make is the very best work I can possibly do. I do not do many custom orders, so please don't ask me to make you a Model 5 Randall copy.
Have a look around. I hope you see something you like.
