Best Fighter 2010 Knife Maker's Guild ... Best New Maker 2008 Blade Show ...
As a lifelong enthusiast and collector, I began making fixed blade custom knives in 2004. I like the challenge of a double-ground knife and am particularly devoted to the knife styles of SR Johnson and Bob Loveless. My preferred stock is ATS-34 or 154-CM. I strive for perfection in the creation of my knives, from designing the blades and selection of the handle material to the creation of a mirror polish. I believe a knife should be of collectible quality and still provide a lifetime of use. To see my available styles of knives, you may click here: KNIVES.

Please take a look around and let me know if I can assist you in any way, and again, thank you for your interest in SteveGatlinKnives!
Steve Gatlin was born and raised in the small southern town of Andalusia, Alabama. He grew up hunting and fishing along the Conecuh River and has always appreciated the usefulness of a well made knife. Steve's interest in making knives began after purchasing the book, "How to Make Knives" by Bob Loveless and Richard Barney. After attending the Blade Show in Atlanta, Georgia in 2003, Steve came home on fire to make his own knives and has barely left his shop since!
