Welcome to the web sight of Bronk’s Knifeworks, the home of the new patented Xross Bar Lock EDC pocket knife and the tactical folding knife.


For the past several years I have been busy developing the patented Xross Bar Lock EDC pocket knife and other tactical folding knives, including the Side Kick EDC pocket knife and the Starfighter tactical folding knife.


The sole purpose of developing the Xross Bar Lock EDC pocket knife was to create the safest and strongest folding knife possible for both the military such as the Starfighter tactical folding knife and for the rest of us is its equal, the EDC pocket knife Sidekick or every day carry knife which works equally well for the sportsman.

I wanted to create a unique, classy, hard working, highly functional, reliable and easy one handed operating knife and one that I would carry myself as I have. It is my constant companion.

My goal is to see the Xross Bar lock  in wide use as I believe that it is superior to the liner lock for both safety and strength and safer that any other lock used today.

The Xross Bar Lock Sidekick

The Sidekick new design model, left, has a strong titanium liner and lock, sports titanium bolsters and clip, a flat ground and stonewashed CPM154CM blade and  G10 scales. Shown is the Triple Aught Design.

I have made two runs of this EDC pocket knife for Triple Aught Design, the original design and the new redesign that incorporated both the safety, control and feel of the Starfighter model.

I was amazed at how fast these TAD knives were snapped up once delivered and is good demonstration of how well folks value what they sell on their web site and in their San Francisco based stores.

The Sidekick sports a 3.25″ CPM154CM flat ground blade, anodized titanium liners, lock, pocket clip and bolsters with Micarta scales. I have built a couple prototype versions of it that is 85% size, for those who prefer a smaller pocket sized knife. Not quite yet into production as I’m improving on the design still.


Specs. Sidekick; Blade 3.25″, Overall length 8.1″, Closed 4.88″ Price $850.00.

Specs. Sidekick 85%; Blade 2.82″, Overall length 6.88″, Closed 4.05″

The Xross Bar Lock Starfighter

The Xross Bar Lock Starfighter, right, was originally equipped with stainless steel lock, clip and liners as at the time titanium was not available. It also sported a CPM154CM blade as well.

The Micarta scales were CNC machine contoured and grooved for superior gripping action and brings out the natural beauty of the layered material. This knife was featured in Tactical Knives as well as Blade Magazine.

Specs. Starfighter; Blade 4″, Overall length 9.4″, Closed 5.6″ Price $850.00.

I have parts to make only a few of the original Starfighters and will make a couple minor design improvements before committing to titanium.

Sometimes you just have to fire up a forge and get creative. Here is one in Damascus. The handle is actually Micarta but looks natural.

This little beauty sold for $1,500.00








With the move to a smaller space, I purchased a new smaller mill and now have it ready to mill some folder parts.
