In this video, Guillaume €™s customer, an Artic diver, is testing a custom knife made from CPM S30V stainless steel with a Rockwell scale hardness of 60.

Guillaume will handcraft your custom knife to your specifications from the finest materials.   His blades are heat-treated and made from steels such as CPM series stainless steel, D2, and Damascus stainless steel.   His custom-designed handles are made from stabilized wood burls, sheep or stag horn, and even mammoth ivory.

Guillaume’s passion for knife making was sparked in the Canadian Arctic in 1981 when a co-worker on the Distant Early Warning line showed him a knife he had made from a discarded saw blade.  His own first handmade knife, he recalls, “was fashioned with old truck springs, heated with a torch, and hammered out until it took on the shape of a knife.”  Take a look at more examples of the unique custom knives Guillaume has since fashioned featured in the Cote Custom Knives CustomMade portfolio.
