Hand-Built Knives AKA Burnley Knives
Lucas Burnley is a professional knifemaker and knife designer who began building high-end folding and fixed blade knives for his signature (custom) line, Burnley Knives, in 2003.
Per knife industry tradition where makers use their last name to identify their work, Lucas Burnley is Burnley Knives. Each signature knife created under Burnley Knives is hand built by Lucas in his shop in Orleans, Massachusetts. As such, output and availability are extremely limited, and Lucas does not take orders. Additionally, Lucas has never made his custom knives available for purchase via website. Lucas Burnley’s hand-built knives are sold primarily via lottery at various knife shows throughout the year and in the Burnley Knives (private) Facebook community from time to time.Burnley Knives is the cornerstone of the BRNLY story—it is where new knife models are born. These knives may eventually become part of the BRNLY line (such as with the Nita 7” Chef Knife) or become available to a larger audience through production projects with companies Böker, CRKT and MKM (Maniago Knife Makers).
