Not at all! Our custom knives start out at $150 for up to 8 overall inches and up to 2 inches in blade height. If you choose a curve within those dimensions, or unusual shape that will go up. Handle type also plays a part in price- but don't worry, we are always happy to work with you to get you exactly what you need.

Absolutely not! Here at Hooligan's Forge, we pride ourselves in making the process quick and easy for our customers. We respond quickly to emails, text & calls! You can also easily schedule for a video call, or to come meet us in person to go over all the details.
YES! We'd love to see it! We aren't Sketch Artists either, so we're in the same boat! You can also just describe it! The approximate or exact dimensions and style are the most important two things we need.
No worries- half our customs are made from customers who say "I want a good chef knife, but I don't know what I need." We'll determine exactly what you will be using it for, and from there we'll be able to determine the size, style & shape you require!
Funny thing- we have had some unusual requests, some we have accepted and some not. For example... we made quite a few handle pulls for one customer who specifically wanted a hand forged, rustic look. Chopsticks was another request, and we continue to make them for others. Asking only takes a moment- send us your idea's today!
We use 1095 High Carbon Steel primarily, and on occasion Tool Steel. Personally we prefer 1095 because it holds a ridiculously sharp edge for longer, however Tool Steel is incredibly tough, and both have fantastic benifits.
Yes! We have many you will be able to choose from, including both domestic and exotic wood types. Such as Red Maple, Oak from real KY Bourbon Barrels, & Peruvian Walnut, up to Ironwood, Wenge, & even Lignum Vita, which is literally the hardest wood in the world!
Once all the details have been settled and you are ready to proceed with Hooligan's Forge making your custom for you, we will post it online under the product category 'Custom Order Purchase' and you can then complete your order online by Credit, Debit, Apple Pay or PayPal. Payments are also accepted over the phone. We understand paying upfront for something you have not yet seen can be scary- but the Hooligan's Forge team is absolutely amazing and you've came to the right place!
