Justin Lundquist received his first knife from his mother at the age of 4. It was a small fixed blade to go with his fishing gear and tackle box. He has been fascinated with them ever since.
He accumulated a small collection of inexpensive production knives over the next few years. Some were family gifts and some came from fairground prizes. He was always drawn to the wide range of shapes and designs while still being a functional utilitarian tool.
After graduating college with a degree in Fine Art Photography and working in that industry for over a decade, He stumbled into the world of full custom handmade knives. It was a rabbit hole he couldn’t resist. He gathered as much information as he could and began to teach himself knife design and making.
In 2013 Justin began slowly making his own knives. He loves the creative process of designing and physically building a beautiful functional tool that can be carried and used daily. He strives to create functional EDCs that have clean lines, shapes and transitions. Mixing classic and modern he hopes to make designs that last and stand the test of time.
The Reverie is a good example of how I like to mix classic and modern. The lines of the Reverie are somewhat classic. However, there are more modern additions like my symetrcial out the front flipper tab, my 5 slot pattern and the materials. This is also the first time I used a hidden lanyard pin. Both of these design elements are pretty awesome. The hidden stop pin allows those who like lanyards to use them and those who don't like them, don't have to see a big lanyard hole going through the knife. I am really happy with the way all the elements came together for this design. I think it looks good and feels great in hand.
