Hello to all of my loyal customers and dear friends over the last 40 years I’ve been making knives for! I’m letting you know that I will be cutting back & will not be making all of the knives listed on my site anymore… From now on I’ll only be making the Ox-Bow & The White Tail Hunter! I do want to thank you so much for all of the many orders over the years & the many Friendships made!
David Allan Durr
I’m David Allan Durr. I make handmade fishing & hunting knives. I specialize in museum quality Collector’s knives and Art knives as well. Custom orders are done upon request, subject to my approval. I take extreme pride in the work that I do and my love of the Old West and our American heritage is obvious by the knives that I make.
Handmade one at a time, the old fashioned way, none of these knives will be exactly alike. When a knife says “handmade” on my site, it means 100% handmade, from me to you. I don’t benchgrind or stamp out my knives, but hand grind every single one of them. Everything, right down to the sheaths, which are made either by me or by Bob Rich (of Rich Leather Goods), are handmade. I guarantee, you will notice the difference! Each piece is a unique museum quality heirloom that you can hand down for generations to come.
I hope you love these knives as much as I enjoy making them. Nothing here is made in a factory. Check out the website to see what we’re all about and don’t hesitate to inquire about custom knives.
