Fat Friend Custom knives are handmade in Georgia by Justin Russo. Justin is a fairly new maker with extraordinary talent. These knives are hand ground and made in his home shop one at a time. They are very robust and tough with excellent edge retention. I visited his shop and saw how he makes them and the work that goes into each knife. He also hand makes the leather sheaths which are piece of art themselves. His sheaths well thought out and designed to lay flat. The sheath has 6 layers of leather, is double stitched and riveted. These knives and an excellent value for the amount of work, quality and detail they contain. His knives are well suited for outdoor activities, hunting, bushcraft, tactical and military applications.
