Crafting Excellence for 45 Years

Welcome to the home of D'Holder Custom Knives. I hope you enjoy your stay and find something that interests you. My career as a knifemaker spans portions of six decades. I still enjoy it as much as I did the year It began.

My knives are made entirely by me in my shop in Wickenburg, Arizona. They are truly handmade without the assistance of a CNC, lazer cutter, or pantagraph. I am an artist not a machinist. I don't have part-time help or swampers to sweep the floor. If I don't push the broom it doesn't get done. I still put in long hours in a effort to keep up with demand. I was recently asked when I plan to retire. The only answer is when God thinks its time.

Over seventy-five makers give me direct credit for a strong influence in their work. That is the greatest compliment I can receive. Most of them spent time in my shop. I often got more from them than I gave. My shop has always been open to visitors and visitors have always been welcome. Please call ahead to be sure I am available and not hunting, fishing, or on horseback somewhere in the desert.
