Picture of Tim Withers
Thank you for visiting Withers knives. My name is Tim Withers and I currently live in Linden California. I have four daughters: Ashley, Morgan, Katie and Lacie. I have been married for over twenty years to my wife Cassey. I am a commercial plumbing project manager and started making knives in my spare time.
I have been interested in knives since I was a kid. My dad would give me knives that he would pick up, and this began my little collection. A few years ago, I went shopping for pocket knives and saw so many that I liked that I decided to make my own. I started by reading several books and then buying equipment. I completed my first knife in March 2011.
I now make fighters, hunters, and utilities - all fixed blades. Soon, I intend to begin making folders. The steels I use right now are ATS-34, 440C and 1095. I do my own heat treating and test every blade with my Rockwell hardness tester. Each knife I make comes with a quality leather sheath that I also make here in my shop.
I have won "best fighter" at Expo 2013 in Pasadena. I also won the "Judges Award" at the Expo 2015.
