What was once a hobby has turned into a family business.  I have been blessed to build my business in my home shop over the past few years. My wife, Michelle, answers emails and does a lot of the shipping and orders for supplies.  My daughters Zoe and Ali hang out with me in the shop when they aren't in school or at dance classes.  


I have loved knives for as long as I can remember, collecting them as I was growing up.  Then came a time when I wanted to create a knife myself, just to see if I could do it. Once I started working on that first knife, I couldn't get enough of it.  From that first knife through today, my love for my trade has continued to grow.

My knives are all crafted from high-carbon steel made in the USA.  All of my knives are heat treated on site in an Even Heat Kiln.  I enjoy working with different exotic woods as well as Micarta, stag and other handle materials. Each knife comes with a hand stitched and dyed leather sheath.


It is my goal to create a knife that is both comfortable in your hand, but tough enough to use for your daily needs.  Whether you are looking for a Bowie, a hunting knife, a fishing knife or just an every day carry, Michael Presnell Custom Knives can create that special blade you are looking for.
