Shay Butler Knives, LLC was unintentionally founded in 2015 after Shay, a lifelong hunter, returned from an elk hunting trip in Montana. He made one near fatal error in packing his gear and forgot a skinning knife. After returning back home, he began searching out custom handmade knives, but decided it would be much more fun to teach himself to make his own. Two years later, we repeat the quote "I only wanted to make one knife" quite often as Shay is still knife-less but Shay Butler Knives (SBK) has taken off! Shay's creativity, high quality materials, and functional but unique designs coupled with his precise leatherwork make products that will last a lifetime.
