Aloha! My name is Dirte, I've been a knife lover all my life and I recently started learning to make knives from the master himself, Tom Mayo. A lot of my design influence comes from Tom but it also comes from my interest in Emerson and Buck Knives. Video games, movies and nature gives me a lot of inspiration for the different designs I make, such as style, shape, colors, handle material I use, etc. I love the outdoors, when I'm not in my workshop I'm out testing my products in the Hawaiian jungles around it!
I also have a YouTube channel, dirteReviews, where you can see the testing of my products as well as products made by different companies. I provide my honest opinions in my reviews and encourage any feedback on my products as well. Any way I can learn and improve is always welcomed.
All items are handmade by me on the beautiful island of Oahu, also known as paradise. Hope you enjoy and mahalo nui loa, thank you very much, for taking the time to stop by my page!
Here is a sneak peek at some upcoming knives...
