EVERETT NOEL || MAPLE CAMPING & PARING KNIFE || #155
I am always looking for a “quiver killer”. When I wanted to buy new skis I was looking for a pair that would work for both park and powder skiing. When I made my last surfboard I designed it so it would work for any wave that I would want to surf. These knives are designed with that same idea in mind. They would be great paring knives, but they also come with a sheath so you can use them at work, or on a picnic or backpacking trip. Having one of these and a chef knife is all I ever use, and when I have a knife that is designed for a specific purpose I don’t end up using it.
Steel: 1095 High Carbon
Handle: Maple from my property in North San Juan, CA

My name is Everett Noel. I am 21 years old and have been making knives for the past seven years. Last year I graduated from high school and took a break from school to make knives full time. I made a knife shop out of an old trailer and traveled around California making knives. Now I am back in school getting an art degree and I am continuing to make knives on the side.
I started making knives when I was 13 years old. I have always loved making things, and I wanted to find something I could keep making and focus on. I found a YouTube video on how to make a knife, and thought I would try it out. My first knife was terrible, but they kept getting better and after making a few I knew that I wanted to be a full time knife maker. Over the past six years I have been working on perfecting my product, and starting my business.
