Meet Your Maker I David m. rydbom

2018 will mark the 10 year anniversary of beginning this adventure and becoming a full time custom knife maker. For some reason, I’ve always strived to fly under the radar and quietly grind away. Happy to do something I love and support my family with it. Taking a passion to work and create with your hands, and making that into a career is an intensely personal journey. If I’m honest though, it has been a saving grace in my life as I’ve struggled to overcome life’s tragedies and set-backs. Like an oak cask to whiskey however, this process has both refined and distilled me as a person and as an artist. A full decade later, I’m humbled by all the support and recognition from those who have found me and purchased a piece of my life’s work. I’m built up by the process of being able to build, and that wouldn’t be possible without such a loyal customer base and  trusting dealers. My family and I thank you all! 

Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life and attend to your own business and work with your hands.
