OUR FOUNDER

  • Les De Asis
  • LES DE ASIS

    Chairman of the Board

    When I first started my career, I wanted to do something different, something better, and make a positive difference. I found my opportunity in the custom knife world where artisans skillfully hand crafted materials into beautiful functional art. Little did I know that nearly four decades later, my initial pursuit would still offer up new challenges, opportunities, and excitement.
