Chris Reeve Knives is a production knife manufacturer. As a production company, we design and produce our own knives, as a opposed to a custom knife maker who may work with a client to design and bring his or her knife idea to life. While we are not a custom knife company, we do have customizable options available. We offer graphics and some hardware, finish and blade options for the Sebenza 21 and Inkosi.
CAD Customs VS Uniques: What's the difference?
CAD Customs are made using a precision laser machine. If you have an image or a drawing you'd like to put on a knife, CAD is the way to go. Artwork can range from a simple letter engraving to complex artwork with a range of anodizing, cabochons, and finishes. You will work closely with customer service and in-house artist to bring your idea into a physical form.
✓ logos, family crests, names , and custom artwork
Unique Graphics are abstract. They're "drawn" freehand on a milling machine, so every knife is a "one-off" piece of art that cannot be exactly replicated. With that said, we can re-create pieces similar to past designs, with a choice of cabochons and anodizing. Artwork decisions are ultimately governed by our in-house artist.
