Darrel Ralph recently passed away. (November 21').  He was a Guild member that specializes in a wide range of unique folder, balisongs, and autos. Marked on the blade with the maker's name. In 1987 Darrel began making knives. His designs are not only artistry in motion but imagination come to life for those of us in love with cutting edge weapons. The first knife he ever made was a Butterfly patterned flipper. His first knife sale was five years later in 1992 at a knife show in Cincinnati.

It would become the catalyst for over two decades of designs that would set the knife world on fire and raise the stakes for other custom knife makers. In a sense he turned up the pressure and lit up the tactical folder industry. His knives also garnered the attention of the U.S. Govt resulting in a contract to make switchblades for select units of the military.
