Fine Handmade Knives


Welcome to Appleby Custom Knives.  My name is Bob Appleby, I am a self taught, full-time knife maker. I started out forging ornamental iron work.  I forged my first knife in 1995 from a railroad spike and have been making knives ever since.

I make fixed blade knives in a wide variety of classic, period and modern patterns and use a wide variety of handle materials both natural and synthetic. I also make my on leather and Kydex sheaths.

I use no prefabricated material, all phases of production and construction are preformed by me including heat treatment.

Appleby Knives is NOT currently accepting orders, please check the available page and if you don't see something
