When it comes to shopping for knives, it is easy to get overwhelmed by the number of options available. Sometimes you might even find a knife that has everything you need, but just does not look like something that you would want to carry. When you visit The Knife Connection it’s easy to buy custom knives using their exclusive Knife Builder tool. This tool lets you take some of their most popular knife options and choose the design features and accessories that appeal to you.
When most people think of having a custom knife made, they imagine having a knife that was handcrafted by a master knifemaker to their exact specifications. While this process tends to result in some incredible knives, it can be time consuming and expensive. That is why the team at The Knife Connection created their online Knife Builder, to offer their customers a more affordable way to buy custom knives that fit their style and needs.
The number of options available in the Knife Builder are limited to only a handful of popular knife models from a few quality knife manufacturers. This tool currently contains options from ESEE Knives, The Ontario Knife Company, and The Knife Connection’s own Architect Knives. The first step in the custom knife building process is finding the knife model from one of these brands that you would like to customize.
Once you know what knife you’ll be working with, you will arrive on a page with several sections where you can select your new knife’s features and the accessories that will be included in your custom knife package. The first step is to choose the blade finish. The number of options will depend on the knife you have chosen. Some knives will be available in multiple powder coat colors and there are a few knife models that will feature a partially serrated option.
After selecting your preferred blade, you can move on to the handles. The Knife Connection offers custom machined handles made from sturdy G10. This material is made by laying fiberglass and epoxy resin, and then curing the finished product under pressure. The resulting material is both strong and water resistant, making it an ideal handle scale material. These handle scales can be manufactured in a number of different colors, so you should be able to find the perfect option to match both your knife’s blade color and your own preference.
These two steps are all it takes to finish creating the knife itself, but there are still plenty of additional options to choose from. No fixed blade knife is complete without a sheath and they have multiple sheath options available for every customizable knife model they carry. Depending on the knife you are customizing, you will be able to select leather, plastic, nylon, or Kydex sheaths. You can also pick up a sheath backer or pouch to go with your new sheath. Once your sheath has been selected, you can move on to choosing accessories like a firesteel or a length of paracord to go with your new knife.
If you want to buy custom knives and get a great deal, then it is time to pay The Knife Connection a visit. They make it easy to create your own custom built knife or you can easily find an amazing knife from their massive inventory of quality products. If you have any questions about any of their knives or the process of building your new knife, then feel free to reach out to one of their knife experts!
