"Real knives for real work!"

Hand made knives are a work of passion and at Diving Sparrow Knives we are passionate about making solid users for those who are passionate about the knives they use.

Hey Everyone!!

Just an update I am sorry I haven't been updating the page but where I live has had such a hot housing market I spent the last couple of years updating my house and finally sold it. I am NOT quiting the knife business but it WILL be a while in this market before I get back into a shop. I am currently shopping for the perfect SHACK and a SHED set up as my realtor calls it. How sweet of them.

I will be re opening the business as soon as possible and to celebrate I will be rolling back my knife prices to a decade ago, so do check back but be patient as I am desperately searching for that perfect shop. Not an easy thing to find.

Diving Sparrow Knives are the best partners you can have on your adventures. My knives have been on survival shows like; Alone, Naked and Afraid, Dude You're screwed along with appearing on numerous other Discovery channels around the world!!! 

Diving Sparrow is carrying a variety of abrasives geared toward the knife making community. If you are looking for abrasives we have you covered check out out new "Abrasives" page. If you don't see what you need just ask as we are growing our inventory.

Celebrating 19 years of making knives with passion. It seems like it all started just yesterday. Now 19 years later a number of magazine reviews and a number of my knives featured on reality TV shows,  my passion for making knives is still moving forward. All thanks to people who want quality knives, they  can depend on. 
Many thanks to all those who have chosen Diving Sparrow Quality over the years.

"Man is a tool-using animal. Weak in himself and of small stature, he stands on half square foot, has to straddle out his legs lest the very winds supplant him. Never the less he can use tools, can devise tools; with these the granite mountain melts into light dust before him; seas his smooth highway, winds and fire his unwearying steeds. Nowhere do you find him without tools. Without tools he is nothing, with tools he is all." Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881)
