In 1992 my partner Mick Strider and I founded Strider Knives, which has grown far further and faster than we had ever imagined.
Midway through the 2000's-era each of us had decided to grow in different ways in order to expand on what we've learned and develop a more personalized line of custom products. By venturing out with our own ideas, we have managed to develop new customers seeking exotic designs and the latest in materials and processes.
At Dwyer Custom Shoppe, we produce solutions to problems - we think the finest solutions with a wealth of science, patience, and practicality. We work only with the most high-end materials and manufacturing procedures, and we stay at the high end.
As a knife maker myself, I am mostly influenced by science. I read a lot of it myself and I really enjoy it and science is in essence what we deliver. Both Mick and I both appreciate beyond measure, and beyond words the people who come to us to have us help them improve their margin of success when they're out there in harm's way. If we do that, then we've done our job.
