Who We Are
Jerry W Smith
I’ve been making custom knives for 15 years. I started making knives while living in Texas. I still make fixed blades. My shop and home uses solar electricity, I do all my own heat treat using a generator to run the oven. I work mostly in D2 with a few pieces in cpm154 and rarely A2. I make all the parts including the springs with bare hands. No jigs, no CNCs, just good ‘ole hand work. I hope you enjoy looking at our work. I would greatly enjoy making a knife or two or three for you to enjoy and pass down to future generations. All my work for sale can be found on Etsy KnivesUnplugged
Knifemakers wife 🙂 I make knife handle materials and I do most of the photography, shipping, sales, & events. I make micarta using a proffesional vacuum system for straight bubble free layers. I also make hybrid handle materials casting them in a industrial pressure chamber. All wood materials I stabilize in a commercial vacuum chamber as well. My line of Knives Unplugged Kitchen Knives all feature the handle materials that I produce. All my work can be found on Etsy KnivesUnplugged
What We Do
Jerry’s knives were formerly JW Smith & Sons Custom Knives. Since living in the Ozarks they are all stamped Jerry W Smith USA. Currently in the knife shop, Jerry is producing knives and preparing an area in the shop for filming instructional videos. The videos will be available later this year in the form of online classes.
We are currently making handle materials from Stabilized Burl Woods, Resin, and Aluminum Honeycomb, along with micarta made using Burlap, Denim, and other materials.
Chef’s Kitchen Knives
Our Custom Chef’s Kitchen Knives all feature our handle materials made in house. The goal with these, are a quality usable knife , that looks good and has functionality, but is very affordable for a custom.
