ABOUT OLIVER KNIVES / Dwane Oliver
Custom knife maker since 2004. As many people do, I enjoy a good knife, only problem was I couldn’t afford one. My solution, learn to make knives. I learned a lot from the Internet, a wonderful tool for learning! I began making custom handmade knives in 2004. I do not use grinding jigs or CNC machines, these knives are all hand-made and shaped. I have sold knives all over the United States, Ireland, England and Australia. Several knives went to Iraq with my sons, who are in the Marine Corps.
As with all of my knives, the G6 SK (G6 denotes the RECON G6 Challenge and SK denotes Survival Knife) is made to stand the test of time. The High Carbon 1095 Steel is precision ground (by my 2 hands) to a rugged size with a durable edge. The handle on a G6 SK are chosen for their durability in any condition, wet or dry, hot or cold. Handles are always textured to give maximum grip, even in slippery situations. Removable Ferrocerium firesteel is placed in the handle to get you out of a tough spot on a cold night. Add a good Para-Cord lanyard, and you have the makings of a real tool for the outdoor adventure seeker. The Kydex sheath is heat molded to each individual knife. The tubular rivets that hold the sheath together are grouped in a Tek-Lok or a Molle-Lok pattern. Handling the G6 SK is truly ambidextrous and can be worn in any direction.
