About Duane Dwyer

Eventually, as they both progressed in their own craft and developed a unique style, they split their brands, allowing Duane to set up his own personal brand of knives.

What Makes a Duane Dwyer Custom Knife Special?

There are machine-made, factory-produced knives sold in convenience stores and supermarkets. Then there are custom-made knives. Custom knives are in a league of their own when it comes to quality, longevity, and beauty.

Duane Dwyer custom knives for sale are always a preferred knife for outdoorsmen, military, and knife collectors. Duane is well-known for crafting knives whose handles match the blade to perfection and whose profile is sleek, slender, aesthetically beautiful, and ergonomically balanced.

With Duane Dwyer-made knives, the function is flawless – but so is the design. Cheaper knife handles usually don’t match the blade very well – or if they do the knives are made from cheap, thin, easily damaged metal. By contrast, custom-made knives from Duane Dwyer are made to last.

The Value of a Well-Made Custom Knife

Legacy heirlooms aren’t purchased at flea markets. For an item to be deserving of either the title “legacy” or “heirloom,” it usually must be something either custom-designed or custom-made. While it is not always the case that custom-made items are of a higher value, it usually is.

The reasoning is simple: factory-made items aren’t made by a thinking, experienced human. They come in boxes and can come with occasionally damaged parts or even mismatched parts that don’t go together. By contrast, custom-made items are looked over by an actual human being – in this case, an expert in knife making.

When it comes to knives, the value you’ll get from purchasing a custom-made knife from one of the world’s leading knife forgers goes well beyond the actual cost of the item. Custom items do cost more upfront – sometimes significantly more – but when the return on investment you receive from the item outlives the original investment you made in the item itself, the value increases exponentially.

The elegant, ergonomic shape, the blend of the handle into the blade, and the artistic value in the knife are so far ahead of what you would find in a routine, factory-made knife that even a be shocked to compare the two.
