About

Thank you all for taking the time to check out my Kickstarter Project!!

I became a custom knife maker about 3 years ago and started a custom knife making business with a friend of mine and we were on our way to making a very successful business until my friend decided to cut me out of the business.  I have decided to go on my own and continue creating great knives and products for my customers and supporters.  I have started this project page on Kickstarter so that I can upgrade my small or in some cases non-existent equipment to the proper equipment I need to help me run a successful endeavor. 

Here are some pictures of knives I completed for previous customers:

I have always strived to provide my customers with the best quality possible when I was an electrician and carry that same mentality, drive and work ethic over to my Knife making.  With your donations I know I could continue to do something I love and something that I am good at to create great quality, reliability and uniqueness to the world of Custom Knife Making. 

Thank you again,

Ken Scherer

Risks and challenges

The risks involved with any new business is the obvious worry of failure, but I know with the experience I have already gained through my years of customer service and my dedication to doing the best of my abilities I know I can succeed in what ever I do.

The biggest obstacle with this sort of business is providing a good quality product and meeting deadlines of customer expectations. When I was making knives I never missed a deadline and always took my customers concerns seriously. I strived to have 100% customer satisfaction and succeeded.

Competition is the next largest hurtle to overcome, designing custom knives that set you apart from the competition. I came up with great designs, great product branding that really caught the attention of my customer base and I learned to set myself apart from every other knife maker out there. Originality is the key too success!
