UTAH KNIFE WORKS
Hand-Crafted Knives and Home of the
Tracker Survivor Knife
I'm Mark, a second-generation knifemaker, having learned from my father at a young age as I watched him work in his shop. My father, a multi-talented craftsman, began making knives as a hobby in the early 70's, and sold many of his engraved fixed-blade and folding knives. I've been making knives since those early days, but only began selling my knives seriously in about 2000. In 2018, I decided to become a full-time knifemaker. I love my Utah heritage and strive to put the "Spirit of the West" into my knives so that they reflect the beauty of natural materials and are designed primarily as outdoors knives. Many of my knife handles use materials gathered locally, such as wood, antler and even composite materials made with sage, pinecones or leaves. My knives are designed to be "working" knives, and although I have made many types of knives over the years, I am focusing now mostly on knives for outdoors use.
