Handmade Working Knives
Here at Beebe Knives you will find a large selection of fine handmade knives and sheaths. I offer a variety of my own original designs and am happy to do custom work as well. I specialize in making fixed blade working knives, and I offer styles for hunting, skinning, fillet, woodcarving, and kitchen.
My name is Paul Beebe, and the knives that you will find here represent the field-proven designs and fine craftsmanship which I have developed over many years as a knife lover and custom knife maker. Read more about my background.
Although each knife that leaves my shop could be rightly considered a piece of art, I have chosen to specialize in making fixed blade knives that are intended to be used.
You can read more about the materials I use in my knives, as well as the design and construction of my knives. And I have just completed a new page where I lay out in some detail a lot of information about the knife designs and styles in which I work. Check out my new Knife Anatomy page.
You can also take a virtual tour of my shop, so that, even if you can’t visit me in person, you can come in and see the kind of work that goes into my knives.
I invite you to take a look around and discover for yourself my comprehensive line of:
I am happy to announce the introduction of a new knife specifically for calligraphers - the quill knife. Visit my Woodcarving Knives page for more details about this knife.
You will find on each of my main knife listings pages, and on the Knife Gallery page, links to PDF versions of downloadable/printable catalogs of the knives from that page.
I now have a Sheath Gallery page where you can see and read about the wide variety of custom leather knife sheaths that I make.
You should also have a look at my Knife Gallery page, where you will find some of my exciting new full tang and narrow tang knives, some of which are available for immediate purchase.
If you would like to read what is being said about my knives by folks who own and use them, I have a page of testimonials, which I will try to update as I receive new feedback.
Now, if you are interested in learning to make your own leather knife sheath, or are just looking for some tips, or maybe even simply are interested in seeing in a little more detail how we make our sheaths, I have a page for you to check out, called Make a Sheath Tutorial.
Try a Beebe Knife. Once you have held it in your hand and had the chance to personally test it, I think you’ll agree with my many other satisfied customers that, not only is it good looking, but it will be a real pleasure to have on hand when you need it.
The bowie shown in the photo at the top right of this page was a part of a juried art show titled “CraftCurrents: Contemporary Craft in Northern Ontario”, sponsored by the Ontario Crafts Council, and was on display with this show for a number of months during the latter half of 2011 and the first part of 2012.
The exhibition, featuring the works of a number of Northern Ontario artists and craftspeople traveled to a number of Ontario communities. You can read more details about this bowie on my Knife Gallery page.
If you are interested in learning a little more about the work that goes into the building of one of our knives, I have put together a time-lapse video that shows the making of a model #6ff 6” fillet knife from start to finish, including the leather sheath. Check it out below.
