Designed from Experience
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.
