Bud is a great guy with passion and skill in bucket loads. His dedication and creativity to the task meant that I got a unique, practical and beautiful knife that I will be proud to hand down the generations. May these skills endure. Thank you
It was a pleasure dealing with Bud from the beginning. Once we had decided we wanted a full set of knives, he worked with us on design. I was able to incorporate a camping knife into the collection using an old file from my late father’s garage. This is now a memento to be handed down.
Thanks so much Bud, I am grateful to have discovered 13 Knives.
The custom buck knives 13Knives made my parents made a wonderful Christmas present. They use them everyday. Good work Bud!
