About Our Blades

Ready for Business

Our blades are burly, sharp and durable. They are made for use, not for show.

Born in the USA

We make everything in our shop in Missoula, Montana with all US-sourced materials. Steel, aluminum, Kydex, even the grommets on our sheaths, are American-made.

Made as Ordered

We usually have a backlog of orders with wait-time ranging from 4-8 weeks.

Worldwide Delivery

Yes, we ship internationally. We have a ton of customers in Australia, Canada, and all over Europe.
