Our Philosophy


We would like to sincerely thank you for your interest in our Custom Knives and Fine Leather Goods. My name is Mike Snody and I have been a Professional Knifemaker and Leather Smith since 1999. My private studio is located on Main Street in Walsenburg Colorado. In over 20 years as a full time maker my Philosophy and Mission Statement have never changed. Craftsmanship, Value and Performance are at the core of everything our company represents. I insist that my knives and leather goods are the best that I am capable of producing with the goal of placing true heirloom grade products in the hands of my discerning clients.  My knives are proudly handcrafted in the USA utilizing the highest performance materials available and are widely recognized as some of the very finest cutting tools available on the planet. I work alone building knives one at a time and the international demand for my work has greatly exceeded the supply. When I have knives available they will be listed here.
