Art Knives

All knives are art in a sense, but those known as Art Knives exhibit artistic forms, or some type of embellishment, which may include engraving, scrimshaw, precious- or non-precious-stone inlay, other exotic natural handle inlays, carving, sculpting, wire inlay, etching or a myriad of other inlays, overlays and underlays. Damascus and mosaic damascus blades, bolsters, handles and parts often elevate a fixed blade or folder to that of “Art Knife.”

John White holds his Best of Show and Best Damascus Knife from the BLADE Show custom knife competition as collector Preston Gough looks on.
