At KM Antler Customs we strive to make all of our customers happy with not just the product they have made custom or the product they purchase, but also the experience and relationship created. Here are just a few testimonials from clients who we have worked with and this is what they have to say about KM Antler Customs.
I would like to thank Kennan of K M Antlers for the beautiful knife he built for me. I contacted Kennan and asked him to build this knife after seeing some of his work on the Facebook page. He asked if we could get together to discuss exactly what I wanted. Kennan was very thorough in presenting me with the many different options, from the blade to the handle material, accent matting and decorative filing options. We spent about and hour and a half designing my knife. He provided tons of options and suggestions.
I chose a shorter skinning style Damascus blade with spalted maple handle. We also added orange accent matting which ended up being an awesome combination with the color of the wood. I also chose to have some custom filing done on the back of the blade handle and with Kennan's suggestion he used the Mosaic pin material.
When Kennan delivered my knife I was in complete awe. What a beautiful piece of art. His sharpening technique gives unbelievable results too! Kennan also made a custom fitted leather sheath for my knife which looks and fits great as well. The knife sheath looked so good I am having him make a sheath for my Leatherman tool as well.
Kennan is a real craftsman and takes a lot of pride in his work and it really shows. I will be a long time customer for certain and am looking forward having Kennan build matching knives for my daughters for Christmas or birthdays.
I saw KM Antler Customs on a social media site and followed the link to the webpage. I saw that the knives were made of good material and seemed to be of equal quality to knives I had seen at a custom knife show that were 2-3 times the cost (no joke). I contacted Kennen and told him what I was looking for. He surprised me right away with his eagerness and genuine interest in what it was that I wanted. We made an appointment and met face to face. Right away, I felt very comfortable with him. He was professional and had brought many examples of his work so that I could choose materials, blade style, length and color of sheath. I was happy to order a custom fillet knife (which I had not seen offered by other makers) and by the end of our meeting I felt comfortable enough to send off a couple of my most precious knives for repair as well. Kennen had given me a time frame of a few weeks which I feel is fair for this amount of work. We kept in touch throughout the time, which i appreciated because I was VERY excited, and he actually finished the work a week early. When I met up with him to pick up the knives, I was blown away, I could not have imagined a better result. The knives far exceeded my expectations in every way. My custom fillet knife is perfect, I have very large hands and have had trouble with factory knives being comfortable for long periods of work, he had taken this into account and this knife is working very well for me. It has great flex and the sheath is absolutely top notch. The knives that I had sent for repair came back looking way better than I had thought possible. All three knives have a wicked sharp edge on them and the leather work on the sheaths is very nice. I'm still in awe of the quality of all of the work he did for me. I will not hesitate to work with KM Antler Customs again very soon, and feel very proud to own some of his work.
I simply can't express enough my gratitude to Kennen for building me a knife that means so much. The quality of this knife is way beyond any knife I've ever held and I own many knives, to includes TOPS knives, so I may have a small idea what I'm talking about. From the elegant vine on the backbone of the tang to the Damascus steel he choose it is truly a work of art.
I didn't want to use it at first because of its beauty and Kennen told me he'd be mad if
I didn't. I am glad I listened. This thing is a monster! From cutting through card board to cutting hoses it is just incredible. Other knives I would worry about them losing their edges, not with this one. I'd venture to say it's as sharp as the day I received it. To be honest, I can't think of a single flaw thus far. It fits my hand perfectly and its been the best money I've ever spent!
I know I've said it a bunch, but thank you! You really hit the nail on the head and I will be having you make me a tanto after the first of the year. I'm here to tell you. If you've ever wanted a custom knife built, this is the guy to do it!
This is one very beautifully crafted knife and excellent leather work!!! Wow I'll be ordering another one for my son here soon. Thanks again, And u are a true craftsman as this is one of the nicest displays of the craft I've ever seen or held. Thanks

"Did the first skinning job with the new knife. Never use another knife again."
"I was surfing on Craigslist for a unique gift for a friend's birthday. I ran across KM Antler Customs. I found the custom made flints with Elk Antlers. I thought Wow that's different. They looked beautiful on the site and more beautiful when I got them.Because the workmanship was so nice I considered getting a custom knife made.I never had a custom knife before, so I went down and talked about what I would like. Not only did he do what I asked, he went above and beyond to make me the coolest knife I've ever seen. I believe everyone should have a custom knife made.It is one of a kind and I am proud to have one. More than the beauty it's functionality is superb. I am a hunter."
Thanks Kennen. From D
