Jim Hammond

Location: Birmingham, Alabama | Years Designing: 39

Jim was the first knifemaker to work with CRKT® in 1994, but he had more than 17 years experience under his blade-decorated belt prior to that. After graduating from Clemson in 1977, he quickly climbed the ranks, specializing in military and collector grade tactical fighters like our FE™ series. A Knifemakers’ Guild member since 1978, his designs—and golf shots—are all about excellence, flair, and function.
