ABOUT

The Midwest Knifemakers Guild was established in 2019 to create a community and provide education, mentorship, and networking for Knifemakers and enthusiasts in the region. Though most members come from the Upper Midwest, all makers are invited to be a part. Meetings are held three times a year with a focus on taking Knifemakers out of the online forums and putting them in direct contact, in return increasing the ability and technical knowledge of knife making and bladesmithing. One of the main goals of meetings is to organize presenting forums that may be specific techniques for edged tool construction, or other peripheral parts of the craft such as leather working and woodcraft. Meetings are open to the public, and anyone with interest is invited to attend.

The Art of Modern Knifemaking

Over the past decade the world has seen a major increase in Knifemakers. Mostly brought on by the makers' movement and people were tired of inferior mass produced quality and searched out Artisans that would create knives that will last generations.
