Wes Adkins has been creating custom knives and edge tools in western Iowa for nearly two decades. What started out as a desire to create a hand-crafted gift for Father’s Day, evolved into a passion, to construct some of the burliest hard-use tools available for the discerning user.
AW&K knives and edge tools are in use from the mountains of Alaska, to the fjords of Norway, to the Horn of Africa, the rugged highlands of Afghanistan and places in-between.
Custom edge tool design and fabrication. 100% crafted in the USA. High end tools built for the uncompromising client demanding hard-use never-fail hardware. I believe in burly rugged durability both in life and my tools. Function, fit and feel are paramount. My tools will feel as if an extension of your body and are crafted to work harder than you do.
Heirloom Quality Crafstmanship
AW&K edge tools are crafted to individual user specifications and purposefully built to heirloom quality. AW&K blades and tools are crafted for persons who live and breathe the land and whose lives depend on their daily tools.
