Who is Andy Roy? Andy has a unique way of blending style and function into his knives. The visual appeal makes you want to pick it up and the great feel of the knife makes you want to use it.
As a tool maker, Andy focuses a lot of effort on handle designs. His signature handle styles have really been a key part of his success as a knife maker. Andy focuses on making the most comfortable handle youﾒve ever held. It is important to him that you can hold the knife in a variety of positions comfortably and do hard work with the blade for an extended period of time. He also is a firm believer that the handle has to index the knife in your hand, so that however you hold it, you will always know where the edge is without having to look. This is very important when doing work with a knife in areas where you cannot see the blade such as when reaching inside the body cavity of a large animal when field dressing it. The great handle function of Andyﾒs knives works with his excellent blade designs to create a top performing cutting tool. Yes, Andy's knives look great, are comfortable to use and they perform great, but thereﾒs another important featureﾅ they are durable as well!
