Long Knuckle was born in the Black Country, in 2009, from the creative minds of Zak Korvin, Max Harper and Ant ‘Tweige’ Mairoudi. It was a messy birth leaving all our fancy jumpers and trousers stained so bad that not even those two old cleaning women from the TV could sort them out. I’m talking about the fact that LK was started as a clothing company and all the T-shirts were printed by the crew themselves with sloppy red and black ink.
It all started when Tweige told Zak about a guy named Max who just started skating and thought they should take him under their wing and teach him all the dangerous maneuvers they perform so well, they didn’t end up teaching him anything but they did decide that with Max’s business smarts, Zak’s incredibly amazing talent of making T-shirts look better and Tweige’s brilliant ideas, they could make quite a good clothing company so the next day it was on, they bought all the equipment necessary for one to print T-shirts and started churning out Long Knuckle Tees.
LK is run by skaters and it was only natural to bring out two sweet ass limited edition Long Knuckle decks.
