Who we are
My passion for knives started at a young age, I loved knives and collected any that I could afford. I loved the history in knives especially military knives from the WWI and WWII. In 2012 I decided to try my hand at making a knife, and my sons Brant and Gage joined in. The first ones we made were out of recycled material (old saw blade) and turned out ok for a first attempt. I decided to get a used 4×36 sander and try my hand at a “real” knife. I made a few neck knives out of farrier rasps and then I was approached by a good friend about making a knife for his upcoming deployment. I decided to give it a try. I used an old chainsaw bar this time along with some canvas micarta, when it was complete I sent it to him. He showed it to the guys in his unit and one of them asked if I would make another for him. I was able to get the second one made and shipped out in time before they left. After some encouragement I decided to start Sloan Custom Knives. A lot has changed since then, and my skills have evolved along with my passions. I use top quality materials now and love the artistic aspect of the build. I have to thank Spencer at STA custom knives for all his help and encouragement through the years!
