Scott Sawby Custom Knife Black Lip Pearl Murrelet Self Lock
This Black Lip Pearl Interframe Murrelet Self Lock was made by Scott Sawby. Scott Sawby is a member of the Knifemakers Guild and has been making knives since 1970.
It was difficult to get started back then, as there were no books on knifemaking and very few makers around to get advice from. Scott teamed up with Steve Mullin and we went north to see Bernard Sparks in Dingle, Idaho. Bernie was one of the original custom knifemakers and a founding member of the Guild. He pointed Scott and Stece in the right direction, showed them what a belt sander was, and they went back to Logan to construct one. For the next few years we made knives either full or part time depending on what other employment was available.
In 1976 Steve and Scott bought adjoining pieces of land in North Idaho, built log homes on them and became professional knifemakers. Scott’s first shop was built of logs. They eventually outgrew it and in 1983 Scott sold his half to Steve and built a shop of his own nearby where he works to this day.
Scott enjoys flying his RV-6A, a two-place aluminum aircraft that he built from a kit over a 3 year period in his knife shop.
