Wes Adkins has been creating custom knives and edge tools in Iowa for over a decade. What started out as a desire to create a hand-crafted gift for Father’s Day has turned into a passion to produce 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.
Wes actively participates in nearly each activity for which his knives are crafted, so rest assured Wes is in tune with an individual’s request and needs. Miniscule details are considered with each benchmade knife or tool as they are meticulously created by hand.
