Here you will find custom, handcrafted knives from quality exotic materials that have served as gifts, presentation items, hunting tools, kitchen tools, general utility tools or commercial cutlery applications.
Many of my knives are in use by hunters or hunting guides. I have also made steak knives, kitchen knives, fillet knives, utility knives and a wedding cake knife. Some of those are featured in the knife gallery that follows.
I also have a limited selection of knifemaking supplies such as exotic wood for handles. I'm always looking to trade for interesting specimens
There is a section where you can learn about the maker, Rob Ridley. As well as knifemaking, I have a career as a Park Ranger in the Mountains of Alberta and experience as a class A hunting guide.
I am proud to be a Canadian and as such, I am compiling a database of Canadian Knife Resources, which may be of use to anyone in the world. Canadians face significant shipping, customs and taxation issues that local suppliers can mitigate somewhat.
Please explore the site. If there is any way I can be of service or something different you would like to see, please contact me. I value your interest and your feedback.
