Welcome To Zima Knives

Fine Handmade Knives Since 1982

Thank you for visiting my web site. I began making knives in 1982 and became a full time knife maker in 1990. My goal is to make knives that you would be proud to carry or add to your collection.

I offer various designs of automatic, fixed blade, and folding knives. I take pride in the fact that I construct these knives from design to finished product.

All blades are hollow ground using the highest quality steels available including carbon steel, stainless steel and speciality Damascus. I prefer natural handle materials. My personal favorites include exotic wood, Mammoth Ivory and Mother of Pearl. Other embellishments can include filework, Damascus or Mokume bolsters and engraving.

I also construct the high quality hand sewn Leather Sheaths, and Pouches furnished with my knives. Each are fitted to the individual knife shown in the photos.

I seldom take custom orders, but prefer to offer finished knives I really enjoy making. Each knife I make is to the best of my ability. If I'm not completely satisfied with the finished product it will not be posted on this web site.

Please go to the FIXED BLADES, FOLDERS, and AUTOMATICS pages to view the latest offerings I have for sale.
