De­signed from Ex­pe­ri­ence

Knives Illustrated - - Gear Up -

Tom Krein is from Gen­try, Arkansas and has 21 years of ex­pe­ri­ence de­sign­ing knives. He is a skilled hunter, for­mer ER nurse, ex­pert crafts­man, and de­signer. He is no stranger to big game break­down and he cre­ated this set to pack in dur­ing his own ex­pe­di­tions. Tom trav­els North Amer­ica chas­ing big game and made the set ca­pa­ble of field dress­ing any an­i­mal he might tag.

“Form fol­lows func­tion” is more than just a say­ing for Tom, it’s a phi­los­o­phy that guides ev­ery knife and de­sign he makes. Af­ter all, hav­ing been an ER nurse, and later em­ployed as a knife­maker, he knows what works. He blends art with hand­crafted steel and cre­ates tools that get used of­ten. Whether it’s clean­ing a freshly landed trout, skin­ning big game, or dic­ing up veg­eta­bles from the garden just out­side his shop, he prides him­self in mak­ing knives that are good, re­li­able, sen­si­ble, and just plain work, of­ten­times, keep­ing them sim­ple.
