I have been making knives very seriously since 1971. My work has been featured in all major cutlery publications and is displayed at 8-10 shows per year. BRITTON knives are in use throughout the world, most notably as part of the issue to the palace guard detachment in Ivory Coast, Africa. I choose to focus my energies on both traditional style slip joint folders and my latest series of tactical designs. I use all of the "supersteels" in my work and have access to others for any special requests. All handle materials, from lapis lazuli to Fiji fire pearl to the most common canvas micarta is handpicked by me from suppliers at shows or in their shops.
