Started in 2005, Don and Andy Hess are making their own line of knives after long careers of making knives for others. Yes, these hand-made gems have more than a passing resemblance to Marbles Knives when Marbles were made in Gladstone, MI.

Note: These knives have Convex grinds please be extra careful when handling.
