The Maverick by Tactile Knife Co. was conceived in early 2022 when Richard Rogers and his wife Sally came by the shop, met with the team, and got to see firsthand a young(ish) group with big ambitions to do something different from most of the knife world.

They saw we wanted to build everything in house, that we were seeking the best and brightest minds in manufacturing and design, that we never skimp on equipment, and how this core philosophy translates to the materials, practices, and pride we bring to the shop every day.

After some back and forth on the design parameters, Richard got us a prototype and we went to work dialing in things like the textured pivot, stronger spring, and custom washers to make the action silky smooth yet functional in dirty environments.

Long story short, the Maverick might look like "just another crossbar lock knife" but we put in countless hours of painstaking attention to every detail like incorporating Richard's signature tri-lobe into our design language while maintaining his clean, simple aesthetic.
