Gerry McGinnis

Gerry McGinnis is a student in business at North Carolina State University, who, at age 20, is the youngest knife designer to appear in this catalog. He started making knives when he was 15, learning mostly from Internet forums, and built up his equipment from hand tools to power tools. He met Alan Folts, who he says "was very generous and helped advance my knifemaking skills, particularly with folders." Gerry transitioned from mostly fixed blades to folders in about a year, and got interested in folder designs with flippers. He has concentrated on mostly flipper designs and perfecting the mechanism because of their ambidextrous one-handed opening characteristics and ease of use. Gerry placed 2nd in the 2008 Custom Knives and Guns Knifemaker Build Off in the folder category and has been mentioned several times in Blade Magazine as a new maker to watch. Gerry is the designer of the new CRKT Tuition and Summa lines, which to the casual observer seem to be the work of a designer with decades of experience.
