I met Josh Fisher at the 2017 Arkansas Custom Knife Show. I was immediately struck by the variety, quality and the pricing of his knives. Josh builds a wide variety of handmade fixed blades, as well as, slip joint folding knives. His fixed blade styles include, hunters, Bowies, and a variety of Damascus knives. His custom San Mai blades will compete favorably with any knife maker in the world as the knife he entered in the judging at the 2018 Blade Show will attest to. Josh won the very prestigious Best Fighter Award in Atlanta GA. He also won the Best Hunter Award at the 2016 Blade Show, as well.

Josh Fisher utilizes carbon steel, forged Damascus steel and San Mai blades in conjunction with just about any handle material you would like. Premium woods, Stag and Mammoth/Mastodon Ivories, as well as bluing are all in his repertoire.
What I like best about Josh is that he does not shy away from a challenge. Both myself and my clients have taken him out of his comfort zone on several occasions. This skilled custom knife maker utilizes a combination of functionality and aesthetics and never disappoints! Josh Fisher always leaves you wanting to see what he will make next.
In April 2021, Josh Fisher achieved a Master Smith rating from the American Bladesmith Society. Additionally, he was awarded the Dr. Carl Nelson Award for the best knife submitted by a Master Smith Candidate.

His daughter, Karis Fisher, earned her Journeyman Smith rating from the American Blade Smith Society. She won the Joe Keeslar Award for the best knife submitted by a Journeyman Smith Candidate.
A very special achievement for both of them!!
