Shannon Carter should be on your knife radar. He is a relatively new maker with a strong visual style, great feel for ergonomics, sharp attention to detail, and a great portfolio of available models. All of those traits are obvious in his Urge model which has the type of refined look and feel that even seasoned knife makers struggle to achieve.
The Urge is one of those knives that you can envision being used for anything. It’s size, proportions, and blade shape lend themselves well to every day carry, hunting, general utility tasks, and everything in between. It’s muscular lines look simultaneously graceful and brutish but also serve the functional purpose of locking it into the hand. It is form and function.
