There is always a swarm of men and a few appreciative women around Tim Lee’s booth at art shows. His hand-made custom knives are things of lethal beauty. They are supremely functional for outdoor sports and coveted by collectors. Lee uses high quality stainless steel, Damascus steel, carbon steel and re-purposed found metals like old sawmill blades. He then pairs the blades with exotic handles made of materials such as desert ironwood, canvass, micarta, and purpleheart. Prices range from $80 to $1250.
