The MMHW shop made some very positive production improvements in the last year. Due to those we also saw a decrease in many of our overhead and materials costs.

We decided to lower the price of all of our knives and axes based on those savings. Those discounts are reflected in the current prices on the site PLUS we now offer FREE SHIPPING to any location in the USA. Please contact us for shipping to any other location. Thank you!

Welcome to our new website!

MMHW is a second generation shop. We offer over 40 years of combined experience producing extreme usage cutlery and full bore field ready tools you can count on. We will make you a custom knife; but, we do not add 'bells and whistles' that only drive the price of the knife or axe up. Function is our byword. If it does not function there is no fun; and, chances are if it isnt fun then it probably doesnt function.

Ted Frizzell, the master Arkansas knife maker who founded Mineral Mountain Hatchet Works in 1981, has produced some of the finest handmade working grade and custom knives available. He has created over 6000 knives, 2500 axes, and 600 swords. Ted has become well known for his hardworking big bowies, axes, and swords both nationally and internationally. Satisfaction guaranteed.
