Marcus Lin

Originally from Los Angeles, California -as of 2016, I reside and work in Malaga, Spain.

I made my first knife in 2004 by forging carbon steels, before committing to the "stock removal method" of knife making for over a decade after meeting R.W. (Bob) Loveless in 2007. Bob introduced me to Jim Merritt in 2009. Over the ensuing years, they have both been instrumental in the development of my skills as a knifemaker. I will forever be indebted to these two gentlemen.

As of 2016, I have started forging knives again -with particular interest in Yasugi “white and blue paper” steels -so I now offer both carbon and stainless steel knives.

All my knives and sheathes are sole authorship. Except stainless steel blades which are heat treated by Jurgen Schanz in Germany.

Thank you to Jim Cooper, Hiro Soga and Mitchell Cohen for taking the photos used on this site -and a Special “Thank you” to all my customers throughout the years.
