Tom Krein

Location: Gentry, Arkansas | Years Designing: 21

“Form follows function” is more than just a saying for Tom. It’s a philosophy that guides every knife and design decision he makes. After all, having been an ER nurse and later working as a knife maker he knows what works. Blending art with handcrafted steel, he creates tools that get used often. Whether it’s cleaning a freshly landed trout with his Mossback™ knife or dicing up vegetables from the garden outside his shop that’s free to the public.
