    Knifemaker Brian Efros

    The website “” did a nice write up on knifemaker Brian Efros.

    I read elsewhere that he has been making knives since 2009. He concentrates on small every day carry fixed blades.

    He uses the “stock removal” method and his blades are mainly CPM 3V, CPM s35vn, or Elmax steel.

    His handles are mostly synthetic (G10, micarta, and carbon fiber), but will use wood if requested.

    Some of his knives are listed for sale on DLT Trading and these knives range in price from $199.95 to $299.95.

    Every now and then you come across a new knifemaker whose work just jumps out at you, not because it’s so far out of the ordinary (like, say, Jason Brous’s work) but because it’s a perfectly executed twist on a tried and true design.

    This is how I felt about Brian Efros’s Scout knife in CPM-3V. This is a classic, do-it-all with a 4.25-inch saber-ground blade. The Scout pictured above is the tanto* version, but I’m much more partial to the regular version show below. It’s similar to a Bark River Bravo 1, but with a much smaller ramp.


    Everything about this blade screams “quality” from the grinds to the fit and finish on the handle. Check out those hollow handle pins.

    Efros’s Birch Creek is also a great looking little hunting blade in the more traditional bushcraft vein. Again, the fit and finish on these blades are top-notch.


    Efros now has knives listed on DLT, so you can check back there to see what’s in stock. I’m seeing the Scout in stock in a few places, and at $100 less than the Koster MUCK that disappointed me, I’m wishing I’d have shelled out for this, instead. Maybe I’ll try to post a trade in an FB group.

    At any rate, Brian Efros is definitely a knifemaker to look out for. He’s clearly got a great eye and some serious skills. I’m excited to see what he’ll come up with next.

    I think his least expensive knife is way more than what you expect to pay for a custom knife. With that said He is an outstanding Maker and very talented at what he does, I think I actually have one in my personal collection that I traded for, Ill have to check
