A Bit of History

Bob took a knifemaking class from Jared and the two quickly pieced together that Bob's background in Manufacturing and Jared's extensive Knife-making skills were perfectly suited to start S&W.


After joining the hit TV show Forged in Fire (at his Dad's insistence), Jared Williams overcame each competitor one at a time to take the Championship prize with his now-iconic Hunga Munga design.

Take a look at a clip from the episode (Season 3, Episode 6). You can watch Jared's full episode here:

“My whole life was centered around building things, and I’ve always had a natural tendency toward knives.” 

Jared made his first knife at the age of nine out of a piece of sheet metal and a willow branch. When he was 15, he bought a $35 grinder at Fred Meyer. When his shop teacher told him he could grind a knife out of an old file, it was the beginning of a life-long quest for tools and the motivation for a career in bladesmithing. "I don’t make knives for other people,” he explains. “I’ll take orders, but when I’m making that knife, I’m making it as if it’s for me."

Jared’s knives are 100 percent guaranteed for life. Each one is hand-signed and no two are alike. His creations run the gamut from small blades to swords to exotic blades and ancient weaponry.
