Steve Hoel Knives

Born in Arizona in 1940, Steve made his first hunting knife in 1952 selling his first one ten years later. Exposed to high quality knives very early by spending time with Bob Loveless and Steve Johnson when they were partners. Known by many as perhaps the father of the interframe, he started making single and multiblade folders in the mid seventies. Steve has made Bowies, boot knives, and daggers, but his investor class folding knives in lockback and slipjoint design are collector favorites. His steels of choice are 154CM, ATS-34, 416, and commercial damascus. He favors natural materials for scales and inlays such as various woods, mother of pearl, fossil ivories, sheep horn, abalone, jade, and many others. His knives are favored for engraving by many of the top artists in the field. Steve has been a Knifemakers Guild member since 1978 and he is one of the featured artists in David Darom’s first class book, “Art and Design in Modern Custom Folding Knives”.
