EVAN S. NICOLAIDES
HANDCRAFTED POCKET KNIVES
I have been making custom knives since November of 2014 in my home shop in Sarasota, Florida.
Whether it be my original design, or a reproduction from old Sheffield, England, I strive to make each knife it's own work of art that is not only beautiful, but functionally precise. The challenge of blending aesthetics and utility is part of what drives my passion for making pocket knives, and continues to push me to advance in my craft. I strive for the best, and that is all I can hope to put out there.
In the summer of 2019 I was honored with the "Best New Maker" award at the Blade Show.
In October of 2022 I was awarded "Best Custom Slip Joint" at Blade Show West.
In March of 2023 I was awarded "Best Custom Slip Joint" and "Best in Show Custom Knife" at Blade Show Texas.
