Barry Gallagher is a custom knifemaker and designer whose workshop is in Lewistown, Montana. He began making knives part-time in 1993 for local sportsmen and outdoor enthusiasts who appreciated high performance tools and handmade craftsmanship. In 1994 he began hand-forging carbon steel blades and making basic Damascus steel, and in 1995 he became a full time knifemaker. He says, "My tastes, talent and technique have continuously evolved since the first knife I made. My passion for my work is stronger and more alive than it has ever been. Nothing is compromised in the making of any of my knives - nothing." His knives have been featured in many knife annuals and magazines, including Blade and Knives Illustrated.
