Swenson Knives

Welcome to Swenson Knives

My name is Luke Swenson, and I live in Lakehills, a small community about 30 miles west of San Antonio, Texas. Making knives has been a labor of love for me for over 7 years now. If you're here looking for a "super knife" - one that never needs sharpening and cuts through platesof steel - well, you won't find that here.


However, what you will find at Swenson Knives is a quality tool, made entirely by me from as many American made components as I can possibly buy, backed by my personal life-time warranty. I pride myself on sole authorship of all my knives.


From the raw bar stock to the American tanned leather that holds your knife on your belt, each individual knife is crafted with patience and care. These knives feature superior toughness and edge holding, balanced with ease of resharpening. Swenson Knives are guranteed to be one-of-a-kind, custom made, and a tool that will last for years to come.


Thanks for visiting Swenson Knives! Please take a look at my past work, see what pieces I currently have available, and don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you might have

"Luke Swenson makes a great knife, folks. I can't praise them highly enough. They're serving around the world in combat and on traplines and with law enforcement and first responders. More importantly, they're serving well. Lives depend on them. I felt almost guilty for keeping this one here in my pocket and using it in the office. It performed excellently, though, just like you'd expect. I was sad to have to mail it off."

What some folks have to say about Swenson Knives...

The Norseman, Survivology 101
"This is an heirloom quality set of knives that will be passed along to my children. Luke Swenson is truly a master of his trade and I would not hesitate to contact him for future projects. The precision and attention to every detail of the design was flawless. He inserted his own experience in the choice of steel and the type of grind on the blades without any reservation. His expertise enhances the design and completed the pair where my experience was limited. The knives perform almost magically when the proper techniques are used during cutting chores."(Click here to read full review)
