Ventana Everett Noel Surf Knives
These high-carbon steel knives are strong, incredibly sharp and handmade by Everett Noel, an 18-year-old surfer and knife maker in Northern California's Gold Country. The handles were prepped by Ventana's master craftsman, Martijn Stiphout, from our reclaimed wood stash. Everett then created the blades, shaped the handles, assembled the knives and crafted the leather belt-carry sheathes. The sheathes are dyed black and, like the knife handles, are reinforced with brass rivets.

The wood for the knife handles was created using reclaimed Ventana surfboard and handplane wood from two different upcycle partner sources, the Santa Cruz Guitar Company and Thamer Design cabinet shop.
The knives are a collaboration between Ventana and Everett Noel and are crafted locally in Northern California. Everett began creating knives as an 8th grader. As a high school student, he has continued to master his craft and grow his business. We're proud to support a young entrepreneur like Everett.
Each knife comes with a Paracord offcut from Khordz mugs production, perfect for hanging your knife or for use as a surfboard leash cord. Connected to each cord is a Ventana hang tag made from reclaimed Honduras mahogany.
These utility knives are perfect for keeping on your belt, in your surf kit or in your car to help you in the wild whenever you need a sharp blade.
