Lyon's Custom Knives specialises in practical, handmade hunting and folding knives. Drawing from experience in the hunting field, the knives are designed to satisfy a hunters’ desire to own a well-made practical knife that will last a lifetime.
The love of nature is expressed in the use of African hardwoods as well as other natural materials, such as animal horn, bone and warthog tusk for the handles of the knives. This does, however, not preclude the use of synthetic materials such as micarta, corian etc - some for durability, some for beauty, others for bragging rights or for ease of maintenance, but all of them interesting to work with.
