    Knives Illustrated’s March/April issue features an article I wrote titled “10 At The Top”. This article showcases the top 10 makers to watch this year. As an on-going blog post, I will not only discuss the makers to watch, but also give you the opportunity to own knives from these top 10 makers.

    This is Part 1

    Number 2: Tim Steingass
    No matter the design his lines are clean and the flow from the tip of the blade to the end of handle is exceptional.

    Number 6: Spencer Clark
    Spencer is one of those rare makers whose abilities belie the short time that he has been making knives.

    Number 8: Shawn Ellis
    His work is not the standard fare you would expect from a JS maker. Shawn uses a wide variety of handle materials to include wood, stag and Ivories.

    Number 10: Larry Chew
    Larry’s tactical folders are the epitome of “bang for your buck.” One of the first to incorporate a bearing system into his folders and has upgraded his materials as well.
