Lucas Burnley of Massachusetts has been a full-time custom knifemaker and designer since 2003. His distinctive knives blend clean, modern lines with tactical origins-a style Lucas identifies as Post-Tactical. His designs for fixed blades and pocket knives are both playful and sophisticated and often incorporate subtle neo-Japanese elements. Above all he believes that utility shouldn't come at the cost of beauty. In addition to Pocketknives and handy Fixed Blades, he also designs his own accessories.
