I’m Keith of Keith Nix Knives, the owner, staff, purchasing agent, designer, and salesman. I purchase the steel, design and make the knives, choose or help you choose the handle material, heat treat, grind, polish, and sharpen your custom knife. Someday I’ll list all the separate steps and operations required to finish a knife, there are a lot!
My friend Curtis Cooper makes sheaths for the knives that need them, and assists in preparing blades for the ovens. My friends at Precision Graphics laser etch the logos. My daughter Sarah Nix and her fiancé Justin Askew have provided some wonderful photos and videos. My friend Ortencia “Tez” Garcia helps with web design and hopefully some future photography. Can you see where this is going? I get to make knives, which I love, and hang out and do a little business with people I ENJOY being around! Great job, right??
I make custom chef’s knives and handmade outdoor knives at my shop in Black Mountain, NC, and provide sharpening service for customers and businesses. Having been a machinist for most of my professional career, a precision mentality drives all my processes. I strive for perfection in all I do. My Guarantee to You- Your Keith Nix Knife is guaranteed for life. I will either repair, replace, or refund your knife at my discretion. All you have to do is ship or deliver it to me and pick it up, or I’ll pay return shipping. If you just don’t like your Keith Nix Knife, ship it back. I’ll refund the purchase price or exchange for another knife, no questions asked. When your knife gets dull, and it eventually will, I’ll sharpen it free!
