    Les’ Makers to Watch 2017 – Pt.3

    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. Over the past couple of weeks, I have discussed the makers to watch and given you the opportunity to own knives from these top 10 makers. Here are the final three makers:

    Number 5: Mike Deibert
    Best known for his designs and execution, these designs feature that rare combination of functionality and aesthetics.

    Pre-order the knife from the article:

    Number 7: Tad Lynch
    What attracted me to his knives was upon immediately picking up the knife, you wanted to use it! The weight and balance belie the size of his knives. These are knives that can be used all day without fatigue. His Hamons (temper lines) on his W-2 are stunning as are his Damascus blades.

    Own the knife from the article:

    Number 9: Ben Seward
    He is using both carbon steels and Damascus now. His knives are incorporating design elements that are both stunning and unusual.
