Bobby Branton

My name is Bobby Branton, and I'm the owner of Branton Knives, from Awendaw, South Carolina.

I've been a custom knife maker for over 30 years and I've studied with some of the masters in the custom knife industry.

I'm pleased to offer my line of handcrafted knives to the collector, or everyday user of fine cutlery.

My goal is to provide “Quality Knives at Affordable Prices” to any person who uses a knife daily to complete a multitude of tasks in the course of their routines.

From casual collectors and sportsmen, to law enforcement officers, fire fighters, and soldiers who depend on their tools with their lives, they all can rely on a Branton Knife.

In 2004, Bobby was inducted into the International Knife Throwers hall of fame as "Knife Thrower of the Year" and in 2005 he was also inducted once again with the "Silver Lifetime Achievement Award". Then in 2014 he once again received another "Lifetime Achievement Award".

In addition to my line of throwing knives, I am making quality tactical folders and small to medium sized fixed blades for every day carry.

I'm a member of the following groups and clubs:
- American Knife Throwers Alliance (President)
- South Carolina Association of Knifemakers (Past President)

About Bobby Branton

By Ronald K. White

As a young man growing up in rural South Carolina, Bobby Branton developed a passion for knives that has stayed with him throughout his adult life.

In his younger years, knives were tools used for skinning game, filleting fish and throwing as a means of entertainment. Then in 1983, edged weapons took a different perspective in Bobby's life when he discovered some custom knives in a local shop.

He was amazed at the beauty and craftsmanship of these handcrafted blades and started his own collection. His interest grew so readily that he read every book he could locate on the subject and decided to try his hand at knife making. Read More...

Profile of Knife-Throwing Legend Bobby Branton

By Timothy Martinez

Since the day he discovered a pair of throwing knives in his mother’s kitchen, Bobby Branton has had a passion for knife throwing.

Branton’s love for the sport motivated him to become the president of the American Knife Throwers Alliance, in addition to creating his own custom knives and spreading knowledge about throwing knives through seminars and consulting.

It’s been a very interesting road for Branton. He first became involved with throwing knives as a young man and spoke about his experience during a recent interview with The Cutting Edge.

“I was really interested in throwing knives at a young age, but unlike others, I was really interested in the competitive aspect of throwing knives,” Branton said. Read More...
