At a young age, Allen Elishewitz has become one of the prime movers in research and development of tactical edged tools. His extensive martial arts background and training as a Recon Marine has given this native Texan the tools necessary to build knives from the heart, based on reality but with a flair for the extraordinary. He has completed notable factory collaborations with Benchmade, CRKT and most recently Hogue. He is considered one of the foremost tactical custom knifemakers in the USA.
