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.
