If you’re looking for SM-100 knives, you’ve come to the right place.
When the developer of SM-100, Summit Materials (who I work for), partnered with my great friend Mike Kobold and worked with him on his Expedition Tools line, I became even more engrossed and addicted to knife making. It is such a pleasure to work with Mike’s genius. I owe him quite a bit for helping me get started. The purpose of this site is to offer custom and one-off knives personally made by me – some will be of the designs we come up with at Kobold and some will be my own.
I started EB Custom Knives after spending an entire career working on and with metals used in the knife industry. On this site, I hope you find innovation in both materials and design for unique workpieces. My intention is to produce tools that will be used … hard.
I’m trying to use newer materials such as SM-100, CPM 154, CPM S30V, CPM 3V, etc. to give you the best knives and tools possible.
If you don’t see something that you wish was here, please let me know and we’ll try to make it happen.
As a side note, the material’s official name is SM-100 by Summit Materials, although many call it SM100, SM 100, 60Nitinol, Nitinol, Nitinol 60, or HIPTiNite – just don’t call it SM-100 steel for knives!
