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

John’s wood working skills and creativity at its best. This museum-quality showcase, built to house my Randall Made, Model 14 Survival Knife, met all my requirements. Built from bird’s-eye maple with cocobolo wood accents, he used part of my Vietnam era, tiger-striped patterned combat fatigues as a background. I asked for extra room to display the medals, awards and unit insignias that I earned in 66-67-68 while in Nam with the U. S. Army artillery.


Randall MadeMy Randall Made Model #14 Survival Knife, that I used and abused while serving with two different 105mm artillery units during the war in South Vietnam from 66-67-68. (The 1st/40th Artillery Battalion, stationed at Dong Ha on the DMZ, and then the the 3rd/6th Artillery Battalion, stationed near Pleiku in the Central Highlands.)

Randall MadeThis well-made, custom knife, that I used daily, taught me the hard lesson not to compromise on using high quality materials. With attention to fit and finish, I can produce a superior knife that will last a lifetime of hard service.

She is now a Maines Family Heirloom, ready to be passed onto the next generation.
