Jim Hammond was the first knifemaker to work with CRKT, beginning in 1994. His designs for CRKT folders set new standards of construction for production folding knives. After graduation from Clemson University in 1977, Jim became a full-time knifemaker, specializing in military and collector grade tactical fighters and folders. A Knifemakers’ Guild member since 1978, he is noted for his exquisite and prized work. His company, Hammond Knives & Designs, LLC, is in Arab, Alabama. His favorite pastimes include golf, travel, and fishing. He holds a private pilot’s license for gliders and has earned the FAI International Silver Badge for Soaring. Jim says about knife design: “Excellence, flair, function—three fundamental keys of quality I strive for in each knife, making each aspect a celebration of style, while maintaining the vision of a design’s purpose and application.”
