Welcome to Ranger Original
Welcome to Ranger Original Handcrafted Knives
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 wedding cake knives. Some of those are featured in the knife gallery that follows.
We also have a selection of knifemaking supplies such as steel, exotic wood for handles, tools, equipment and abrasive belts.
There is a section where you can learn about the maker, Rob Ridley. As well as knifemaking, I spent 15 years as a Park Ranger in the Mountains of Alberta and have experience as a class A hunting guide. I should mention that Ranger Original now has TWO knifemakers. My wife, Marilyn, has assisted me for some time and is now making her own knives. Watch for pictures in the gallery soon.
We are proud to be Canadian and as such, are 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 wecan be of service or something different you would like to see, please contact us. We value your interest and your feedback. If you find a dead link or have trouble with the page please contact ourweb tech at West Peak Designs.
