Website Relaunch

SDK Website

I’ve been working hard and now the updated version is of SonoranDesertKnives.com is live 5 days earlier then expected.

Just like the older version of the website, you can still find the knives listed under each of the makers name, yet a whole lot easier to use. The new site also features knife categories by Knife Types and a search engine.

SonoranDesertKnives.com will now be almost exclusively custom knives. There are some that are factory manufactured, but these are limited editions, rare or hard to find knives and vintage knives. Most of our modern manufactured knives have been moved to our new sister website, RangerSurvival.com

We’re still adding knives to our website almost daily, so please check back often. If you like to new website (or not), please drop me a line and let me know.

Thank You,

Leopold Lacrimosa, Owner

Legends of Knifemaking: Paul Fox

Jesse Paul Fox Jr, known by his middle name Paul, was a long-time member of the Knifemakers’ Guild and owner of Pioneer Woodcarving. As Fox’s friend and fellow maker Tim Britton noted on The Knife Network, “Paul may have been one of the most creative knifemakers of all time. He was perhaps best known for his electric-motor-driven folder and a series of very fancy knives that were a lot like sculpture. He won the W.W. Cronk Award at the Knifemakers’ Guild shows till they asked him to stop entering and let someone else win.

Paul Fox 1938 – 2012

According to Britton, Fox had a great sense of humor. “Paul had a Chevy Suburban that he bought at a North Carolina State Surplus auction for $700,” Tim recalled. “It was ugly, yellow and very beat up.  He took it to Hendricks Motors of NASCAR fame and had them put a full race motor in it.  Damned thing would fly and Paul loved nothing better than challenging redneck racers and usually beating them. Guess you have figured out by now, that dude was a character!

“Paul was very much at home with locals—guys from the garage, bread-truck drivers, etc. He was one of a kind, like so many of us in knifemaking. I can still see Paul using the remote control boat to chase geese off his pond!”

Russell Klingbeil Knife

Russell Klingbeil died in January 2004. He was a member of the USMC. An avid surfer and weight lifter. He was an accomplished designer and engineer of fire-sprinkler systems. He was very much into Harley Davidson motorcycles. Remarkably talented at drafting, he was also very good at drawing, often things that would make me laugh and my aunt smack him on the arm. He was an outdoors-man who camped and was an aficionado of the rugged mountain-man lifestyle of yesteryear. He was a black-powder rifleman as well as an accomplished knife-maker.

Here is a Spear Point Boot Knife he made. there were 67 of these made between November 1998 and January 1999. This one is numbered 001.
