David MacLean

David MacLean attended Emily Carr University in Vancouver, and then Instituto Allende Art School in Mexico. He specialized in painting, printmaking and sculpture. While supporting a young family, David diversified into careers in tree planting and cabinet making. “With a passion for history and upcycled mixed materials, it was a natural transition for me to forge into knife making. My father introduced me to knives at an early age, and I have made many over the years as a hobby. In 2021, my partner and I launched Spindrift Custom Knives on Quadra Island as a new business. I enjoy creating custom knife designs from vintage high carbon steel and a variety of wood, antler, and unique materials.”
