This is a review of a few knives I received from Bill Page. Bill Page learned how to make knives from Joe Darrah (a multiple world champion in knife throwing). In addition, Bill does incredible leather work and makes awesome bows.
The three knives he sent me is one modeled after the EK Model #1, Tactical Thrower, and the Gryphon.
The EK Knife was originally designed by John Ek of Hamden, CT, back in 1941. He was a bit of a renaissance man and believed to have been a spy for the US Government. He employed handicapped workers in his knife making facility and you had to be a military service man to receive one of his knives from 1941 to 1944.
