Longknife Custom Knives Home Page


Welcome to Longknife Custom Knives. Formerly known as "Idaho Custom Knives", the name change was necessary due in part to the company relocating to southern New Jersey. No other changes have occurred as we are still committed to building quality knives at affordable prices. Under our former name (Idaho Custom Knives) we sold knives througout the western US, Canada, and the UK. Our move to southern New Jersey was based on the needs of Don's family as well as to expand our marketing range to include the East Coast.

Don Long is the owner and is a master knife maker with 25 years experience in the art of knife making and knife restoration. Don is a full time knife maker and is noted for his expertise in Elk Antler material and has been involved in custom, limited edition knives made specifically for members of the Rocky Mountan Elk Foundation. Don has done custom elk antler knives in limited editions for most of the major production knife manufacturers as well as several large firearm manufacturers. Let Don turn one of your personal Elk, Deer, or Moose antlers into a knife that will bring you years of reliable service and fond memories of a successful hunt.

At Longknife Custom Knives we use only the very best knife grade stainless steel available and we specialize in ATS 34, 154cm, and AUS 6&8. All stainless steel is both heat treated and Cryo treated for an excellent even temper that holds the edge well and can be easily sharpened. Don uses Devon Thomas and Thunderforge Damascus steel for his custom Damascus knives.

Longknife Custom Knives are guaranteed for the life of the knife and are resharpened for free. Don Long is a full time knife maker.
