Master Knife Maker Newt Livesay

Newt Livesay

Who is Newt? He is a self proclaimed Southern born American Author, Politically In-Correct Philosopher & Raconteur, Banged Up Warrior, Hard Living Adventurer, Lover & Knife Maker Extraordinaire.

I’ve known and dealt with Newt for over 20 years. What do I know about him? I know this man has a love for our military personal and looks to equip them with the absolute best knives he can make for them. This is what “he” says about his knives:

“IF YOU LOOKING FOR A COMMERCIAL OVER HYPED SO CALLED SURVIVAL TOOL YOU NEED TO LOOK SOME WHERE ELSE! WE ARE HARD-CORE PROFESSIONAL GRADE USER KNIVES

Livesay Combat Knives are used by Hard Charging Warriors around the World that can Swim Faster, Scuba Dive to Unbelievable Depths, Shoot Straighter, Sky-drive or HALO from Incredible Heights, Fight Better and Dirtier all the time Wining Wars with Honor, Loving Women, Pushing Deeper and Harder when needed,. They can Empty Bars, Quell Riots, Convert Virgins, End Revolutions, Tame Tigers, Organize Orgies, and Plan Church Socials in their spare time while killing Rats. These People are Hard Core, High Speed, Low Drag Individuals who care enough to Carry and Request the Best

Knives for Professional Military Personnel, Law Enforcement Officers, and just damn good people”

If you have ever held a Livesay knife in your hands, you would know that they are built to last through hard ass usage. Maybe that’s why many service men heading over to Afghanistan, Iraq, and other theaters of war elect to carry a Livesay Combat Knife with them.

GREETINGS FROM LEE’S CUTLERY 7/2018

A lot of people don’t realize that I do not have a store front and would like to come and browse. You can

always catch me at the local gun & knife shows to see the products I have on hand that are not listed on

the website. Check the show dates here

Without the overhead of a brick & mortar store, I’m able to keep the prices lower than most.

Also I don’t do not sharpen knives but I recommend that if you are in the Phoenix area you get in touch with Bob the Knife Guy in Scottsdale, AZ at 602-705-1398

NEW KNIVES ADDED, NICE KA-BAR READ

I’ve added many new knives to my web site lees cutlery  Click on this link NEWLY ADDED KNIVES  to check them out. Included are several custom Newt Livesay Knives as his knives are some of my favorites.

I recently read about another of my favorite fixed blade knives the KA-BAR enjoy:

What’s in a name? The story of KA-BAR

A group of 38 men in Titidoute, Pennsylvania decided in 1898 to start a company for the production and sale of knives. When the Titidoute Cutlery Company ran into financial troubles in 1900 and was disbanded, the estate was bought by Wallace R Brown who started a new factory called the Union Razor Company. As emphasis shifted increasingly from razors to pocket and hunting knives, the factory name was changed again in 1909 to the Union Cutlery Company. In 1910 the company moved to Olean, New York, encouraged by the city council of this area to do so.

The name Ka-Bar was the result of a letter received from a trapper written in the 1920’s. While he had been out hunting  he was attacked by a rushing bear. His rifle failed, but he managed to kill the bear with his Union hunting knife. In the hardly legible letter, he thanked the company as his knife ‘k a bar.’ which was derived from ‘killed a bear.’ The company owners saw the opportunity for promotion and changed its name to Ka-Bar.

The Ka-Bar got such a good reputation during World War Two that the owner Danforth Brown decided to incorporate in 1952. In 1961 the family company was sold to a few local businessmen who drove it into bankruptcy shortly thereafter. The company changed hands several times until Atlas Corporation of Olean, New York took it over in 1996 and moved Ka-Bar back to the town it had started.
