handmade knives by Nick Timpson

Birdvis knives has evolved from a makeshift workbench in the garage in 2017 to the full time knife making business in the Sacramento valley that we know now.  Nick has always found a way to tinker and create, and he one day realized that simply modifying rusty old knives wasn't enough. He needed to create something entirely his own. Today Nick handmakes fully custom slipjoints from the comfort of his own back yard workshop. This at home business now allows him to spend valuable time with his wife and three young children. 

 The support of the knife community, friends, and especially family have helped turn a hobby into a business, Birdvis Knives.

Please feel free to search the gallery and explore the knives of the past, and purchase the knife of your future from the Birdvis Knives shop.


Many Birdvis knives are created using "micarta" from G.L. Hansen and Sons (formerly Unique Micarta)
