Fairbanks Knifemaker Gets Good, Solid Press!


Fairbanks, Alaska, knifemaker Mark Knapp not only built and reportedly patented a cool .1911 Combat Survivor Knife, but he recently received some well-deserved press on the piece. For more combat and survivor knives, click here.

If any of you are familiar with Mark and his work, he fashions some high-art, yet utilitarian fixed blades and folders with “mosaic” handles of exotic natural materials from Alaska and around the world. He forges his own damascus, is a full-time maker and built his first knife in 2000.
