Welcome to the world of TIM BRITTON handmade knives, and thanks for stopping by for a visit. I have been making knives very seriously since 1971. My work has been featured in all major cutlery publications and is displayed at 8-10 shows per year. BRITTON knives are in use throughout the world...most notably as part of the issue to the palace guard detachment in Ivory Coast, Africa.
New from Tim Britton:
T-10 LATEST design, available mid February... , named for parachute used at Ft. Benning jump school.
Blade is bg42 OR s35vn, titanium framelock, machined sideplates ; 2.96 inch blade for those of us encumbered by 3" concealed weapon laws. Available in several colors, blacked out, or natural titanium.
$475 postpaid USA
I have virtually all of the "supersteels" in my shop and access to others for your special needs. All handle materials, from lapis lazuli to Fiji fire pearl to the most common canvas micarta is handpicked by me from suppliers at shows or in their shops. You are assured of the finest steel, hand-picked premium handle materials and my unconditional money back guarantee in the event that you are not completely satisfied with your BRITTON knife. My steel preference is still bg42 but I am unable to locate a dependable source of bar stock in the right sizes. I am seriously evaluating S35VN as an alternative. So far I am VERY impressed.....looks as if this will become my primary steel.
Please feel free to contact me at any time to discuss your personal needs in custom cutlery. Go to the order information page for contact information.
Please take the time to check out the first knife in my Master Series of ten collaborations with internationally famous master craftsmen.
NOTES FROM THE SHOP………
Lots of new energy for my new “tactical” folders. First run of “TANGO” sold out at NY/NJ show in November. Les Robertson wants 6 with a slightly different blade profile, so I’ll do maybe 15 more, delivery by end of January, 2013. I’ve been using s35vn almost exclusively and really like this steel. Ductility and edge holding seem better than bg42. Check out my new folding PRONGHORN with either clip or wharncliffe blade. Also new is my first 2 blade “gunstock” pattern. We’ve updated my 2013 show schedule. Hope to meet you at a show sometime.
Best regards, Tim
