More about Kevin Foster

“I am a part time knife maker since approximately 2013 based out of Los Angeles.  My goal is to be a versatile knife maker; I have made fixed blades, folding knives, kitchen knives, and filet knives out of various stainless materials.  My career affords me to carry and use knives and test their effectiveness in various circumstances.

Southern California has a lot of fun activities such as fishing, hunting, diving, camping, and hiking.  Knives are a part of all of these activities, all of which I enjoy.  I became fascinated with knives at a young age.  I remember using knives while on family camping trips, I also fondly remember admiring knives while attending gun shows with my dad.  I have a background in photography and noticed I enjoyed photographing details in fine knives.  I started collecting custom knives and frequently attended custom knife shows.  The more I attended shows, the more I collected knives with unique details that caught my attention.  That explains my love for Tom Mayo knives. Tom Mayo’s knives are simple in design, most often flawless, they have unique details such as “chattered” drill holes and perfect contouring.  I quickly became addicted to collecting Mayo knives and my friendship began with Tom Mayo.  This friendship I believe is what drove me to challenge myself to make knives.  I have been fortunate enough to make long lasting friendships and get help from some of the best in the tactical knife world; Tom Mayo, Lee Williams, Gerry McGinnis, Matt Cuchiarra, and Ray Laconico to name a few.  I am humbled by other knife maker’s willingness to share information and often by the generosity of the knife collectors in this great community we are all a part of.   I currently enjoy making tactical frame lock folders with stainless blades.  I strive to make every knife as nice as possible, and make it a knife I would enjoy carrying myself.  My current folder models are the R1, R1 mini, GOAT, and the Narwhal.
