All of us at Perrin Custom Design combine our diverse expertise to provide artistic innovation in synthetic component material that will inspire artisans in all areas of interest.


Perrin Custom Design got its start in Wisconsin when young Tim and his father shared their passion for building and fixing things. Together they developed an interest in knife making, and that interest was passed along to Tim’s son, Kyle, and later to Tim’s wife, Gail.

As Tim, Gail, and Kyle began attending knife shows on a regular basis, they learned more about the craft and became well-known within the knife making community. It was at the knife shows that they kept hearing from other craftspeople that variety and diversity in component materials were lacking. People were tired of seeing the same old things. The team clearly saw that their mission was to create new and different components in response to that demand, and appeal to artisans looking for the next groundbreaking idea.

Perrin Custom Design began experimenting with resin products, and knife making was the company’s main focus. As innovators, it didn’t take long for them to see the incredible potential of their product for use other than that of knife components. They looked beyond the horizon to crafts that included pistol grips, pens and jewelry, and this led to the birth of Perrinite TM thermoset resin products.

What’s Ahead?

Moving forward, we ask ourselves: What else can we do? Perrin Custom Design is a dynamic company—always learning, growing, and innovating. Our potential and that of our customers is only limited by our imagination.
