BIG BEARD BLADES
Victor has called Seward home for over 30 years. He is an avid fishermen, hunter, and metalsmith. Victor was lucky enough to train under Virgil Campbell, owner of IRBI Knives. Virgil and his wife Dawn inherited their business from Virgil’s parents Irvin and Clara Campbell who opened IRBI in 1971 and are renowned for their custom-made knives made from solid steel. Victor makes custom knives using the techniques he learned from Virgil including traditional Damascus layering. He uses a wide range of natural materials including moose antler, fossilized ivory, and bone for his handles. Each one of his knives is one of kind and he loves taking customs orders.
