Tim Olt of OLT knives started making knives in the mid 1990's as a part time hobby. Word quickly spread of the quality and craftsmanship of OLT knives. Soon OLT was getting requests for custom knives which led to him turning his hobby into a business. All knives are hand crafted from only the highest quality materials and finished for a robust appearance. Knives are meant to be used appropriately and carry a warranty under normal use. They are not chisels, screwdrivers, crow bars etc.
