Lost Planet Forge. Fine Handmade Knives.
Handmade Knives crafted in Iowa. A passion for the art of knife making.
Welcome to Lost Planet Forge.
We make one-of-a kind, hand made knives. All of the knives on this site are crafted by a single artisan using a mix of traditional and modern techniques. These sporting and outdoor tools are a blend of science, artistry, tradition and passion. In a world of mass production and digital assets, these knives are reminders of handmade quality and practical function. Each has a character of it's own, but they all will bring you home from your next adventure with a smile on your face.
Each knife is created one at a time, by hand, in Des Moines, Iowa with American-made high carbon tool steel and unique natural materials. Handles are made from horn, bone, and an emphasis on native hardwoods finished with natural oil. Every knife comes fitted with a handmade leather sheath.
Every trip outdoors is a chance to reconnect with the basics and to discover again that we belong there. In the wind and mud and sun. Lost Planet Forge celebrates this hands-on relationship with exceptional tools, purposefully built to perform and designed to please the hand and eye.
We are glad you found us.
