Mike Naylor (born c. 1953 in Oneonta) is a guitarist and knife maker.

Naylor taught himself to make knives as a boy and has made them as a hobby ever since. After retiring from touring with bands supporting Mel Tillis and Marty Robbins he returned home and resumed his hobby as a full-time business. He crafts about 300 knives each year, often custom orders. Partner Richard Davies fabricates leather sheaths for each one.
