Named after a mythological Hindu creature, considered the guardian of gateways and the entry’s to temples, the Makara is a lightweight utility knife that can can switch to a defensive role when needed. It also has a very personal connection to one of our Knife Makers, the Makara was designed in honour of Elijah’s grandfather.

The Makara is designed to be a simple, lightweight forward grip knife that could be used as a more utilitarian every day carry knife. The blade is just under 3″ long with a pronounced and robust point  and a swept flat-ground edge, making it adept at general utility tasks, light bush crafting, or in a pinch could be used for defensive application as well.

The handle is fairly neutral and has great ergonomics for its more utilitarian tasks. It’s also on the smaller side, making it very easy to carry. 

The 2023 Custom Makara comes with an array of options allowing you to fine-tune your knife with some precision. The range of choices are largely aesthetic, but some like the Sheath Type can tweak factors like comfort. There are a staggering number of possible configurations at your disposal allowing you to define whether your Custom Makara is a simple, functional tool, or a functional yet finely finished heirloom quality piece that can be handed down to future generations.

For 2023 we have made provision to produce a very limited number of just 10 Makaras. We are a small custom shop with limitations of how many knives we can produce per year. We have put our focus on producing high quality individually tailored defensive knives and as such this means we can only make a limited number each year.The average Build Time for our knives is 4-8 weeks, depending on the configuration, but this does NOT include waiting time in the queue, or shipping transit time at completion.Before starting on this journey we encourage you to familiarise yourself with our Tier 2 Custom Build process, so that you are aware of everything that goes into making your Divine Companion.
