Custom Handmade Knives by Lon Humphrey are forged the old fashion way, using a forge and a hammer. This art requires patience, a keen eye, a high level of coordination and hard manual labor to produce the fine knife designs we see coming out of Lon's shop. Lon Humphrey Knives are designed to work and they are very pleasing to look at as well. When you buy a Lon Humphrey Custom Knife, you will receive a unique, quality knife that features old world craftsmanship made here in the U.S.A.! When you buy one of Lon's knives, you have a piece of traditional Americana!
