Leroy Remer and the Subhilt Bowie

Maybe you have never heard of Leroy Remer, but you have possibly seen The Highlander, or even more likely, The Hobbit. Leroy has made exact movie swords/knives for people involved in these famous films. And that is just the tip of the iceberg. His custom knife work spans nearly four decades and thousands of amazing custom works of art.

Leroy began his custom knifemaking career as Buck Knives’ first custom knife maker. During his 17 fruitful years in the custom shop, he hand crafted hundreds of those fantastic customs which are now rarely seen on eBay and at knife shows due to their singular desirability. He was involved in some of the most memorable projects at Buck Knives. He personally designed many of those now famous classic models, including the Skinners, and the terrifyingly awesome 904 Sub-Hilt Bowie. He introduced the radius grind to Buck’s line of custom knives. He even helped create the legendary 184 Buckmaster Navy Seal Knife.

Today Leroy leads the industry in one-of-a-kind knife creations. He consistently produces American quality knives in the finest tradition. He has worked with Chuck Buck, David Yellowhorse, Paul Bos, and many other leaders in the knife world. Though he runs his own company now, Triple-R-Knives, he still serves the Buck Knife community as the Buck Collectors Club custom knife maker, customizing all models of Buck Knives and still creating his own masterpieces.

So whether you are interested in movie knives and swords, Buck Customs, customized knives, or just one of his expensive one-of-a-kinds, be sure to get a piece of the action – this guy is a living legend.


Leroy is making a limited number of the showcased knife (left), similar in style to his original 904 Subhilt design (shown center and right). This is only available from ePrague and has been a fun project to work on. These are etched with Leroy Remer's logo RRR.

So far he has made 20. There were 10 satin finished, and 10 mirror polished. We will probably have him make some more, but in limited quantities. So if you want one of these, at a fraction of the $1000+ price of the Buck 904 now is the time to buy the RRR SUB HILT style bowie!
