When I spoke to Ray at the Tucson Knife show earlier this month, he allowed me to list a couple of his knives on the website. Little did I realize how well made the knives he gave me to consign were. After holding, photographing, and measuring them, I now want one for my own. You can bet I’m going to get one too!

His NDN integral knives are a pleasure to hold and use. Ray designed these knives for what he calls EDU (Every Day Use). Believe me, it is a knife that you would love to carry for everyday use, no mater if you’re out hiking, camping, boating or working.
