Charles Gedraitis- custom knifemaker

Ever since Charles could remember he had a fascination with knives.

“My grandfather gave me my first pocketknife when I was 5, and it was that moment that did it. I started making knives by taking apart my mothers kitchen knives. My parents thought that there was something “wrong” with me because I had a fascination with sharp objects. That all changed when I took them to a local knife show and showed them a whole room of people interested in knives. I seriously began making knives when I was 16. I am now 42 years old and have been making knives for more than 25 years. For the past 17 years I have mainly concentrated on making folding knives including liner locks, slip-joints, automatics and balisongs.”
