Phil Rose has quickly become a rising star in the world of custom-made knives. In just 5 years his knives have become so sought after that waiting periods for one can be as long as 8 months. Unlike most custom knives, the demand is not for their flash.
I interviewed Mr. Rose in particular because of his PSK series of knives. Several months ago they came to my attention; simple, elegant, and built to last, his knives represent what may well be the perfect custom survival knife.
Recently, I had the pleasure of speaking with Mr. Rose, and discussing him and his knives.
