North Carolina custom Knifemakers Guild

North Carolina Custom Knifemakers Guild © All rights reserved.

The North Carolina Knifemakers Guild was founded in June of 1992. Our goals are to:


• Promote the craft of custom knife making

• Seek to constantly improve the craftsmanship of its members

• Provide an educational resource to anyone interested in the craft

• To encourage new makers and provide a forum for their training


Through public knife making and forging demonstrations by a group or individual members, we try to display the craft and to educate the public. It is our intent to raise the general awareness of custom-made knives and the people who create them. That is why there is no cost to attend one of our meetings, and welcome anyone with an interest in knifemaking.


Our quarterly meetings are organized around speakers and various demonstrations of activities important to our craft. These speakers and demonstrators are from our membership or experts in the field who come as our guests.


As a training resource, our Guild is prepared to present any aspect of our craft to organizations that feel it would be beneficial and informative.
