Howdy Y'all! and Welcome to Chops Knives. Located in the Great State of Texas on Beautiful Lake Bob Sandlin!

Knives by Tim "Chops" Lambkin and my wife Erica Lambkin, here's a quick bit of info on how we do things.

All of our knives are Handmade right here in Chop's Shop! What do we mean by handmade? Custom Designed, Cutout Freehand, Ground Freehand and Built Completely by MY Hands! Because they are cutout and ground by hand no two knives are exactly alike! Each knife is unique unto itself in the entire world!!! We use only the BEST Knifemaking Materials available as well! From exotic metals to exotic handle materials, all of our suppliers are the best in the business and known around the world for their quality!

All of our Blades are Cryogenically treated and tempered to a Hardness that keeps your Knife Tough and one that will hold a NICE Edge as well!!!

All of our Sheaths are made right here by Erica. Custom fit for each knife as they roll off the bench!!! We can customize them to fit your needs as well! Right or left handed, pick your color or maybe add your initials for a personal touch! All of our sheaths are saddle stitched with gussets and rivets for longevity.

Acquiring these materials and using these methods is a lot of work and very time consuming but we feel it's yet another reason to want to own our Handmade Knives. We hope you enjoy browsing through our website!

"The Wild Woman" Survival Knife

Measures 9" overall with a 4 1/2" cutting edge.

Here's a quote from Kellie Nightlinger AKA "The Wild Woman" and Star of Episode 2 of Naked and Afraid. After using her new Chops Knife on one of her hunts she had this to say; "One hit with my new Chops Knife "The Wild Woman" this boar was dead in a second and didn't know what hit him. The knife penetrated so well it was like butter and left a hole the size of my fist and my hand slid right in behind the knife. I've never seen anything like it".

USE AND CARE GUIDE
Do not store your knife in the sheath for extended periods of time. Always keep your blade clean and dry. For our Carbon Damascus knives we recommend using a metal conditioner regularly on the blade and around the handle to help protect the knife. We use Ballistol but any metal conditioner will work. On folding knives, keep the inside of the knife clean and free of debris and apply oil at all moving joints regularly (We recommend Quick Release brand or an oil that will not gum up or change viscosity). Do not abuse your knife. Do not throw it, use it as a chisel or screwdriver or chop with it unless it is made to do so. Do not sharpen your knife with an electric sharpener or grinding wheel as this will detemper the steel. Taking proper care of your knife will ensure many years of beauty and enjoyment!

Where is your big trophy from your big hunt?

Hanging on the wall collecting dust.
