Andrew Holz started making custom knives in 1972 with great field performance and pleasing aesthetics. After finding the right steel, countless hours are spent grinding, shaping, and polishing to achieve the perfect blade. Once the blade is created, Andrew chooses amongst a variety of materials such as exotic woods, carved antler, and bone. To overcome the difficulty of finding the perfect guard, bolsters, and pommels, Andrew began casting his own pieces out of brass, nickel, and stainless steel to allow full customization. Spectrum Fine Jewelry is proud to carry a beautiful line of Damascus steel knives by Swan Lake Knives. Stop in to view our collection!
