About Us


My name is Adam Gray, owner and custom knife maker of AA Forge Handcrafted Knives.   Working in my shop in South West Ohio, I strive to create some of the best outdoor knives on the market. 

What started out in 2009 as a hobby in my parent’s basement, has today turned into a serious full time business.  My shop is located in Middletown, OH.  There, I make quality knives for serious outdoorsmen, hunters, and chefs.  I handcraft my knives from the finest materials available.  The goal is to produce the finest knife you'll ever own; a knife that will serve you for a lifetime, regardless of the task.

Using traditional designs as inspiration, I craft knives that pay homage to traditional styles while bringing them into modern time with superior materials and attention to detail.  

These are not your grandfather's knives...but they could be your grandchildren's functioning heirlooms.
