About Us

My name is Brad Vaughn, I live in Denton Texas. I own Denton Knife Works.

I started my knife making doing martial arts training blades for Filipino martial arts, this soon grew into making live blades as well. I have been a craftsman for 30 years doing things such as crafting Native American style love flutes, woodturnings and working with silver jewelry. I am currently building a blacksmiths shop so that I can expand on my passion for working with metals. Most of my tools I built for myself, as that is a large part of making knifes for me. My go to metals are 1095, 5160, 80CRV2 and old files.
