We make the knives the professionals rely on. The knives we produce are relied on by armies, tactical forces and survivalists around the world – literally. Their well-being and their lives depend on our knives. You can now buy these same knives.
We use only the finest steel that has been manufactured to our specification. It is cut by laser to ensure that every one of our knives starts its life as accurately as the designer so carefully penned on paper. Heat treatment and tempering produce the optimum crystalline structure in the steel for the desired toughness, flexibility and hardness of the blades. Finally, our craftsmen grind, shape and assemble every knife by hand, delivering the sharpness and quality of finish you can depend on in the most demanding of environments, and which also make our knives the centrepiece of any knife collection.
