Tru-Grit has a new shop with state of the art equipment that is run by knifemaker, Jeff Mutz. With over 16 years of heat treating and knifemaking experience, Jeff is here to help you with all your questions and knifemaking needs.

Jeff has done extensive testing on many knife steels and has worked with other well known knifemakers. He has learned the best heat treating methods to make your knife perform perfectly - no matter the task the blade is designed for.

Being a knifemaker himself, Jeff has answers to many of your questions about knives and knifemaking products.
