"Hello, I'm Mark Yow, owner of Apex Custom Knives."


"I've always had a passion for knives and other edged weapons. In 2023, I decided to turn my passion for knives into knife-making. I am a CNC machinist by trade, so I guess you could say I have an affinity for all things metal.

I live in central NC with my beautiful wife and our 3 rowdy boys. I am a U.S. Army combat veteran who served two tours in Iraq. When I'm not working or spending time with my family, I enjoy hunting, gaming, and researching my craft."


"My attention to detail, plus thorough research and knowledge of this field, is what truly sets me apart. You can rest assured that each one-of-a-kind knife I make will be handcrafted with the utmost precision & skill.

If you're looking for a custom hunting, camp, kitchen knife or something else...I'd welcome the opportunity to work with you. I will take the time to draw up your dream knife, involving you throughout the process."
