Hi, I'm Matt
I'm a custom knife maker from Kent, UK.
I'm an avid bushcrafter and love being outdoors, be it camping, walking, foraging or collecting fungi I am in my element.
I started making knives in 2013 as a hobby, mainly making bushcraft knives for friends. However my love for the craft grew and soon I built a workshop to contain my ever expanding range of tools, equipment and materials. As such I took the steps to become a professional maker in 2017 and attended my first knife show as a maker in the Summer of 2018.
I am open to take on commission work focusing mainly on outdoor knives for bushcraft, hunting and camp duties. My knives have been used for jungle and wilderness survival by people exploring from the Scottish Highlands to the Amazon rainforest. My knives are also in the hands of serving military personnel.
I also make a range of kitchen knives that can be highly customised for use in both the home or professional kitchens.
Matt is hugely skilled and absolutely passionate about his process and use of materials. My knife is a thing of beauty and an absolute joy to use. I have recommended him and would do so again, to anyone interested in high quality, hand made equipment. A knife from Matt is an investment and worth every penny.

I've had 3 knives from Matt now and after months of frequent use they're still a pleasure to use. It's always reassuring to buy a handmade item that you know will last decades. Ill be calling again when necessity arises, or more probably before necessity arises! Many thanks!
