Utah Custom Knife Maker Chad Nell had an appreciation for things made by hand from a very young age. He gained this appreciation from watching his father handcraft arrowheads from flint when he was a child. Chad eventually was fortunate enough to study under two very skilled knife makers, Steve Johnson and John Young, leading the way to building his own works of art. It has only been up from there as Chad was selected as "Best New Maker" at the 2011 OKCA Knife Show in Oregon. Nell Knives are precision crafted, intricately designed and built from some of the finest materials known to the knife industry today. Owning a Nell Knife is owning a piece of working art that can be cherished for generations.
