Matt Diskin's training as a CNC machinist shows through in his knives. Each knife is a carefully tuned precision work of art. Though Matt focuses most of his work on automatics, he also makes traditional folding and fixed blade knives. He's studied with some of the best, including Butch Vallotton, Mastersmith Steve Schwarzer and Mastersmith Bill Moran (deceased). He uses steels including ATS-34, 1084, 15N20, O-6 and D-2.
Matt is co-founder of Volcan Knives, a production knife company.
