Hi, I’m Dan Harrison. I’ve been designing and making knives for over 60 years. For 15 years, I designed and/ or made custom series knives for such international knife companies as Alcas, Kershaw, and Browning, as well as numerous other knife companies, businesses, and foundations. During this time, I obtained several patents in mechanical design and had the honor of winning two international awards for knife design and the “1986 American Made Knife of the Year”. As an added honor, I was chosen to represent Texas knife makers at the Texas Folk Life Festival for three years in a row.
I am not limited to design or size as I free-hand grind my blades from raw stock. D-2 tool steel (shear blade & punch press die steel) is my choice for hard working blades . I believe it has no equal for strength and toughness. The beauty and unique patterns of Damascus steel is my favorite for collector’s pieces. I heat treat every blade , using a 12 hour process.
I enjoy talking with customers to discuss the selection of materials, design and specifications, as well as just to keep in touch. Harrison Custom knives can be found in the collections of celebrities, movie makers, world leaders, and my loyal customers. GUARANTEE: You must be completely pleased or receive a full refund.
