A New Knife Maker Gaining a Name

Ryan Pearson of Pearson Custom Knives is a master mechanic by day and an up-and-coming master knifemaker by night. His dreams of taking his knifemaking full time are quickly becoming a reality through his growing customer base and fan following within the knife community.

This is due in large part to his popular models such as the Titan, Chief, Lil Chief, Scout, and Rhino. All his knives and sheaths are made out of his home shop by Ryan himself and the occasional family member who can pitch in a helping hand.  

Ryan utilizes the same work ethic that made him a master mechanic in his trade as a knifemaker. His knives’ quality, fit and finish, massive attention to detail, and customer service are second to none. His easy-going nature and great personality are also beginning to garner a lot of customers.

Titan

The Titan is a beautiful drop-point fixed blade with carbon fiber handle scales and blue G10 liners. The knife features a full tang blade made from CPM 20CV with a forward finger choil so the user can choke up for precision cutting. It comes with a Kydex sheath with a Tek-Lok belt attachment for easy carry.

Chief and Lil Chief

The Chief and Lil Chief combo are fan favorites of Pearson Custom Knives. They come in various configurations based on the customer’s preferences. The knives’ standard configuration features Nitro V blade steel with a hand-rubbed satin finish, as well as minor, yet effective, jimping on the spine and all knives come with a Kydex sheath with loops that allows for the knives to be carried in the scout position.
