Comments: At this point it would probably be an understatement to say that John Young is one of the hottest makers of classic stock-removal fixed blades on the custom knife scene for more than a decade. But of course, it's still true. When we met John at the 2004 Knifemakers Guild Show he was a guy making quality knives with a 4-6 month waiting list.

Today John has to sell his knives by drawing at shows to avoid a riot, is quoting 5-6 years for delivery, depending on the model. And the fit and finish of his knives is absolutely second to none, including knives made by his distinguished mentor Steve Johnson. To learn more about John and his work please see the Featured Artists pages of our site.

Besides making an assortment of classic Loveless and Johnson shapes, John has produced a number of interesting designs of his own, with many more sure to come.

This special one-of-a kind Ring Dagger, is one of the most extraordinary Young knives we have ever seen. It also has 416 stainless guards and a flawless blade of ATS-34 that is double-ground. The scales are superb presentation-grade Sambar Stag and John swears he will never make one again! So this is most likely the only chance you will ever have to acquire this extraordinary model.
