Welcome Home

Hello everyone,

     I am Jeff Maron of SpearTip Knives and I am based out of Chilliwack, BC, Canada. I hand-craft knives including fillet, hunting, folding, chef and knives for almost any occasion, such as weddings. Being an avid outdoors person, knives have played a large role in my life.  I was trying to satisfy my own needs, as I had never quite found what I was looking for within a knife while fishing , hunting, guiding and taxidermy.  I continued to make them for family and friends, always striving to improve the quality. I had no intentions of starting a business until my family and friends indicated a huge interest by requesting to purchase my creations. From then on my hobby excelled to a business making it difficult to keep an inventory of my custom built knives.

    My knives are made with very little use of machinery, completing much of the process by hand. All my bevels are ground with a hand file. When I first started building knives I did not even know of grinding machines so I used a file to create all my bevels. I have continued this “old school” approach because I feel sculpting by hand is truly a “custom knife".  I was self-taught and therefore developed many of my own techniques. All hardening and tempering is completed by myself using my Evenheat oven.

     I hand pick all of my wood for the handles from a local supplier who imports exotic woods.

     I file work most of the spines of my knives, adding a custom appeal to them, as well as a polished finish. My handle design is noticeably comfortable and assures a very safe and secure grip.

   All my knives include a handcrafted, unique looking leather sheath. I use a particular unique lacing technique to showcase a rugged look to my sheaths. 

Some years back my Dad was diagnosed with an incurable cancer and he succumbed to this awful disease. So, for each sale of a knife $25 is donated towards cancer research. I understand that what I am about to say may sound kind of goofy but here it goes:

 I have a photo of my father at my work area.  When I am hand filing a bevel and have sore body parts and the sweat is dripping all over my work area I just glance at my father's photo and think about all the suffering he had and it makes filing a knife by hand, easy.

 

Thank you for reading.

Jeff, thank you so much for sharing with us your history and passion for what you do. Your story is a very good one and one that is shared within your knives. Your pics look great, but the knives are so pretty, how could the pic be bad? 

I look forward to seeing more of your work and reading your posts, I am sure you have a lot to share with us all. Knife making is an art and here at IKC we have a lot of artistes.

Thanks for sharing.

Jeff, thanks for opening up and telling us about yourself, your knives and your father. I am glad to have you as a member of this club and would like to see and hear more about your knives. Thanks.

Jeff, I was checking out your site and wow.

I could spend a few hours on there just looking at the pics. Your wedding knife is one of a kind, I love it.

Great knives.

Thanks johnny,

I strive to meet and exceed a customers expectations and the wedding knife certainly does just that.

Jeff,

What a wonderful journey you are having.  Self taught and hand filing your bevels, not something you see much.  Thank you for sharing your work, your passion and a little of the history of both with us.  So how do you decide what piece your making next?

Actually I do not make knives for inventory. I continuously fill orders. I have just currently finished a knife that will be an engagement gift. The lady is giving my knife rather than a ring to her "boyfriend" when she asks him to marry her. I now will be starting on a very special knife for a parapalegic. Oh, I actually do make some knives for inventory. I make them for a local knife show so I have something at my table to represent myself. That is how I determine what knife is next.

Jeff,

This is excellent!!!

The lady is giving my knife rather than a ring to her "boyfriend" when she asks him to marry her. 

Can I ask what she is giving him?  Can we see it or has she not asked the question yet?

Yep, we have another great IKC member! I'll bet there's other forums that wish they had such a great group. My thanks to all of you great members we have here at IKC.

Jan,

It is a fillet knife with cocobolo, full file work , front and rear stainless bolsters,yellow spacers . The cocobolo is hand picked for grain pattern and of course custom etching. I can not show any photos because as of this point in time the parcel has left Canada and I do not post photos until the recipient receives the knife. I only e-mail photos to my customer prior to shipping. She is extremely excited about receiving it.

Well once it is home and the question has been asked we would love to see it

Jan,

I will definitely post a picture once the question has been asked.

It is just going through United Kingdom customs as we speak.
