Although he has only been making knives for a couple of years,
multiple award-winning knife maker Brian Nadeau of Sharp
by Design is currently one of the hottest Tactical makers
on the planet. Having worked extensively as a machinist
in the Printing industry for more than 15 years, Brian has been
heavily involved in precision machining all of his life.
His design philosophy is straightforward - he wants his knives
to be simple, strong and memorable. And when asked which
knife makers he admires he claims to be most taken by the real
innovators because they motivate him to work hard to become
one of them.
His favorite materials are Titanium and Carbon Fiber.
Titanium for its many useful properties and Carbon Fiber because
of its appearance, light weight and strength.
Blade 2014 was Brian's very first knife show where he
won both "Best New Maker" and "Best Tactical
Knife" for his superb "Typhoon" design! And
to demonstrate these accolades were not a fluke Brian then won
"Best New Maker" at The Gathering in Las Vegas just
a few months later.
In fact, since winning these awards, Brian has been so inundated
with orders that he has temporarily had to close his books.
So we feel honored to be one of only a small number of Dealers
working closely with Brian to spread the word about his
exceptional new knives.
Currently Brian attends the Blade Show and The Gathering
and has been invited to the 2015 Tactical Invitational in
Las Vegas. He hopes to eventually attend the New York Custom
Knife Show and the East Coast Custom Knife Shows, both currently
in New Jersey.
With so much success so quickly we asked Brian about his goals
for the coming year, and he told us he would like to use "State
of the Art" equipment with innovative engineering to
produce the highest quality knives technology will allow.
And from the enthusiastic response to Brian's work in the last
year we would say he is well on his way.
