Wooden Cabin

Meet the Maker

Hey, Nuge here. 

When I'm not making dust in the shop...

I'm outdoors camping, fishing, and hunting.


I've been an avid outdoorsman my entire life. My youth was spent with the Boy Scouts learning wilderness skills that I've carried for a lifetime. 

In 2019, I made my first EDC knife with just a file and a hacksaw on a tiny workbench in the garage. (which still sits in my work locker today) 


I've combined years of processing game, wilderness survival skills, and martial arts to design high-quality knives that allow men and women to thrive in both the forest and the kitchen. 

Why a Nuge Knife?  

I mean I've been drinking coffee from the same red, enameled coffee mug for the past 8 years... 


As a maker, I keep a practical and utilitarian mindset,

My knife designs are tested in real-world conditions before ever hitting a customer's hands. 

Each model's blade geometry, handle sculpting, and overall fit-and-finish have been handcrafted + refined to perform as well as they look. (no gimmicky thrills included)


With 100% American-made materials, Nuge Knives are built to last decades and passed down to future generations.
