Montana Knifemakers Association

The Montana Knifemakers Association, which was started in 1994, is a non-profit educational organization to further the art of knifemaking through seminars at the annual show in Missoula, MT, hammer-ins, and sponsored two day one-on-one learning experiences with other members. Among the founding members were Rick Dunkerley, Ed Caffrey, Barry Gallagher, Shane Taylor, Dan Nedved, Bob Crowder, Lyle Brunkhorst, George Conklin, Mel Fassio, Bryan Peele, Gerome Weinand, Lyle Bainbridge. Recently, organization members have been involved in teaching knifemaking to high school seniors working on their senior projects.

Our members are custom knifemakers who are dedicated to perfecting their craft and providing their customers with quality products. Our members are highly proficient, and emphasize the highest quality in both their workmanship and in their business ethics.
