Charles Marlow is one today's top makers of Tactical Knives. He doesn't take orders and on the rare occasion he has a knife at a knife show it is sold via lottery. Charles started making knives in his fathers woodworking shop when he was a teenager and that got him hooked, he continued to make knives throughout his high school years and while in college. He decided, during his last semester, to go full time. Some comments from Charles about his knife making; "I love making knives and feel very fortunate that I am able to do so for a living. I also feel very fortunate that I found my passion so early in life. I make the best knives I can from the best materials I can get. I will never sacrifice quality for anything. It has been an adventure, but I wouldn't trade any of it for the world".
