Sonoran Desert Knives founder, Leopold Lacrimosa has been collecting knives since he was a young kid. He remembers getting his first gentleman's pocket knife around the age of seven.

   All throughout his life has has carried a knife. While in the military, he was known to carry several different knives when out in the field, including an EK Combat Dagger and a 12" Arkansas Toothpick. He soon became the "go to" knife guy for advice on what kind of knives his team mates should carry.

   His first  official collection knife was a stag handled Bird & Trout knife by Bo Randall. He has been buying, trading and selling knives for his collection ever since.

In 2008 his hobby became a small business and has quickly grown in stature and inventory.
