EdVan HoyAbingdon, Virginia

Looking at the shelves in his shop, you’d almost think Ed specializes in awards rather than knives. But that just comes with the territory when you are pushing the limits with your designs. Just a few of his many highlights are: the A.G. Russell Most Innovative Folding Knife, Most High Tech Design-S.I.C.A.C, Best Fantasy Knife in the Ohio Valley Knife Show 2005, and Knife of the Year at the Blade Show 2004. Ed is living proof that if you love what you do, the rest comes easy.
