Some Information About Rocket Knives

Thank You for your interest in
Rocket Knives.

My name is Rob Davidson and I am the sole owner
and operator of my one man shop.
I started making knives as a hobby in 1978 and began working
at it full-time in 1982, after losing my job as a machinist.

I do my best to offer a high quality product at a reasonable price. I use no high-tech equipment in the manufacture of the knives that I make.
I work at home from my garage to further help keep overhead to a minimum. I still sit at the band saw and saw each piece individually, I still solder guards and fittings and I still hand-rub all final finishes.

All pieces are made as they were 20+ years ago. All of my machinery is manually operated and I still subscribe to the "pick it up and grind it" theory. I am a big believer in sole authorship and try to make all of the parts for my knives myself. I warrantee my knives against defects for as long as I am physically able to repair them.

My knives are both collectable and functional.
I use ATS-34 or 440c stainless as a standard blade steel on both folders and fixed pieces. Other high-tech steels are available upon request.

Most any type steel is available and some of the new high-tech steels come at an extra charge. Please call, write or send an
e-mail to inquire about specialty steels.

I also offer a wide variety of handle materials to meet any specific needs from rock and ivory to the finest in hardwoods from around the world.
