NOTICE OF RETIREMENT: As of 2021, I am no longer taking orders for new custom knives or custom knife repair and conversions. For those of you who would still like one of my custom knives, I do have a few "On Hand", that can be shipped out ASAP. You should find the info and photos of them under the "Knives For Sale" section.  These remaining knives will be discounted by 30%, until they are all gone.
Thank you for your support over the years.  - Jay Maines


Hello Mr. Maines,

I opened my door this morning to head to work and found the postman had dropped off an expected package. I opened the box to find a work of art inside.

Thank you so much, yet again, for making this dream become a reality. The handle fits my hand perfectly and provides a weight and balance that was missing with the resin-impregnated handles. She truly has become a blade worthy of esteem and rests even now upon my mantle for all to see. It is so beautiful I am hesitant to use it!

The sheath will have to be remade to suit the handle, but that is something that needs to be done in order to provide this blade a place of rest when not in my hands; something that accents the beauty of blade and handle, incorporating the natural elements of stag handle along with the grace of the full-belly blade. Excelsior!

Thank you once again for your hard work and effort you put into this blade. I appreciate your patience as well; you are a gentleman was well as an Artisan.

It has been a pleasure and an honor doing business with you. I pray to our Creator that all your efforts will be rewarded and blessed!
