Thank You for your interest in
Rocket Knives.

My name is Rob Davidson and I am the sole owner and operator of my one man shop.
I started making knives as a hobby in 1978 and began working at it full-time in 1982,
after losing my job as a machinist.

I do my best to offer a high quality product at a reasonable price.
I use no high-tech equipment in the manufacture
of the knives that I make.
I work at home from my garage to further help
keep overhead to a minimum.
I still sit at the band saw and saw each piece individually,
I still solder guards and fittings and I still hand-rub all final finishes.

All pieces are made as they were 30+ years ago.
All of my machinery is manually operated and
I still subscribe to the "pick it up and grind it" theory.
I am a big believer in sole authorship
and try to make all of the parts for my knives myself.
I warrantee my knives against defects
for as long as I am physically able to repair them.

My knives are both collectable and functional.
I use ATS-34 or 440c stainless as a standard blade steel on both folders and fixed pieces. Other high-tech and tool steels are available upon request.

Most any type steel is available and some of the new high-tech steels come at an extra charge. Please call, write or send an
e-mail to inquire about specialty steels.

I also offer a wide variety of handle materials
to meet any specific needs from rock and ivory
to the finest in hardwoods from around the world.

Press here to view the options page that show some of the
different steel and handle material options that are available.

on a later visit.
