Welcome to Branton Custom Knives!

Bobby Branton

My name is Bobby Branton, and I'm the owner of Branton Knives, from Awendaw, South Carolina.

I've been a custom knife maker for over 30 years and I've studied with some of the masters in the custom knife industry.

I'm pleased to offer my line of handcrafted knives to the collector, or everyday user of fine cutlery.

My goal is to provide “Quality Knives at Affordable Prices” to any person who uses a knife daily to complete a multitude of tasks in the course of their routines.

From casual collectors and sportsmen, to law enforcement officers, fire fighters, and soldiers who depend on their tools with their lives, they all can rely on a Branton Knife.

In addition to my line of throwing knives, I am making quality tactical folders and small to medium sized fixed blades for every day carry.

In 2004, Bobby was inducted into the International Knife Throwers hall of fame as "Knife Thrower of the Year" and in 2005 he was also inducted once again with the "Silver Lifetime Achievement Award". Then in 2014 he once again received another "Lifetime Achievement Award".

I'm a member of the following groups and clubs:
- American Knife Throwers Alliance (President)
- South Carolina Association of Knifemakers (Past President)

My knives are constructed from the finest materials and made to the best of my ability.

The knives shown on this page are the style of knives that I am currently making.

These knives will be available for immediate delivery or they may be ordered to be delivered at a later date.

My current delivery time is anywhere from 4-6 months for custom orders.

If you see something that you like anywhere on this site, please feel free to contact me so we can talk about it. I may have that certain model in the works for delivery much sooner than expected.


If you'd like to order a knife from me, I will take your information and when the time comes for me to begin working on your knife, I will contact you and we'll discuss which model you would like to order.

I try to realistically keep my delivery times under six months. When I get to the point where I am looking at six months worth of work, I will stop taking names and finish all knives that have been ordered up to that point.

The list is “First come, First served” except for active LEO or Military personnel.

Once I begin the final stages of completion of your order, I will request payment. If payment is not received in two weeks (unless a different agreement has been made), I will place your order for sale on my web site or my knife forums.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
