Charly Mann is a true craftsman. He prides himself on his knowledge and creativity in the blade smithing world. Quality steel is his passion. He forges his own damscus, makes his own mosaic pin designs, custom fits every handle, and leaves his personal touch of a custom knife made by him and only him. Many makers will buy bits and pieces of their knives from catalogs and simply put them together. When you are getting a Mann knife you are getting a truly hand crafted piece to be handed down for generations.
