William Scagel was the father of the modern custom knife. His knives have been in demand from the early 20th century until this very day. From the first knives Ol' Bill Scagel made until the ones created in his memory, Scagel Knives have always been in high demand.
At $20,000 and up for knives hand made by Bill Scagel himself, Scagel knives are out of the reach for most people. After Scagel's death in 1963, there was no one to carry forward his work. It was not until about a decade ago that a custom knifemaker took up Scagel's mantle and began making real Scagel knives again. They were knives made as replecas of Bill's original work. Today, we have taken the next step in real Scagel® knives. We are building Scagel knives that are, as Bill would want, knives you can use.
21st century Scagel® knives are made with the same useful style and flair we are accostomed to seeing from Bill Scagel, but with the added quality and usability of modern knives. They are the best of both worlds.
You will find these genuine Scagel® knives to be among the finest knives money can buy, but at a price you can afford to actually use them.
