“We all die. The goal isn’t to live forever, the goal is to create something that will.”
–Chuck Palahniuk

Hi, My name is Shannon Carter and I would like to welcome you to Fall Creek Knives.
I created this website as a digital display case for knives that we (more about that in a minute…) design and handcraft.  I have been a knife enthusiast for a long time and have always appreciated the value of a quality craftsmanship.  That plus a constant desire to be creative led me to knifemaking.
My goal is a simple one – to create a knife that will be passed down for generations… or as one friend put it, an heirloom.  I’ll consider it a success when that happens.
My wife (who supports and inspires me each and every day) is a professional photographer and is responsible for bringing the details of my craftsmanship to life.  I encourage you to check out her website here.  Together we have two wonderful kids – Dalton and Emma.
From a young age, my father taught me how to work with tools and to never be afraid of getting my hands dirty.  I’m happy to announce that he has joined me on this journey into knifemaking and that is what I meant when I said we… by the way, his name is Bob.
The name Fall Creek comes from the location of the farm I grew up on and where my family calls home today.
Please feel free to drop us a line on the Contact page.  You can also keep up with what we’re doing on Facebook and Instagram.

Thanks again for stopping by.
–Shannon
