All custom knives are made to your own specifications right here at the Black Mountain Knifeworks. We use only new known steel. Each blade is personally and individually heat treated by Keith, cryogenically quenched, tempered, and hand-ground to be the best custom knife it can possibly be!


Proudly offering laser personalization of any Keith Nix blade by Precision Graphics of Black Mountain, NC. We custom fit the handle material or wood of your choice, and offer leather custom sheaths, made individually for each knife from top grain vegetable tanned cowhide. Each knife can be made with any handle materials other than bone, horn, or antler. We offer fine wood handles to more water-resistant G10 or Micarta. Your personal preferences matter at Keith Nix Knives!

Any knife in our store can be made from a variety of steels to satisfy the home cook or professional chef, from simple high carbon steel to stainless steel, to high tungsten tool steels. We offer three high-carbon stainless steels (AEB-L, 14C28N, and CPM MagnaCut), three high-carbon steels (52100, 80CRV2, 26C3), and three tool steels (A2, D2, and CPM M4) for either kitchen knives or outdoor/sheath knives.  All custom knives are finished to razor sharpness, as measured on the BESS scale by the  "Edge on Up" sharpness tester!

"I ordered a beautiful chef's knife from Keith. He showed me his process, allowed me to pick out the wood for the handle and delivered a lasting heirloom for my husband's birthday. If you are interested in a purchase, take the time to set up an appointment, and see what is possible.
Also, I was aware that Keith needs the lead time to hand craft such a gorgeous, perfect knife. The investment up front by contacting him months ahead was worth it."
"I've already put some good use in from working in a professional kitchen with my cleaver and 10" chef knife; also, love the quality, balance, and sharpness. Keith let me pick the wood in for the handles, talked me through blade sizes, and also the edge type that was right for me.
All of my coworkers are just as in love with the product as I am, as well I've already been asked by family and friends where to get the high quality craftsmanship that I received.
The handles are beyond beautiful, the blades are beyond sharp and strong, and I love how great Keith is with making sure the product meets the person and need for the knife. All around, better than anything I've ever bought from major knife brands!"
