A rising star in the custom knife world, Maverick Custom Knives is helmed by James Robert Buckley. This stunning Maverick Customs Van 8 is the original, handmade version of the soon-to-be-released Kizer production model – albeit with a different blade shape, blade steel, and pedigree.
As a self-professed steel snob, James only selects the best and most high-end tool steels to work with, as evident with the Van 8. What's more, the blade shape is reminiscent of the legendary Kukri knife used by the fearsome Ghurka soldiers. The distinct recurve and added finger choil at the base make it incredibly versatile and equally adept at slicing cuts and precision work.
Adhering to time-honored traditions, James prefers the old-school method of cutting out blanks, sanding them flat, and then fitting them all together. A picture of perfection, the Maverick Customs Van 8 comes complete with butterscotch micarta scales, a matching deep-carry titanium pocket clip, and custom hardware.
