Off-Grid Knives® is a family owned, American business, offering high-quality knives at multiple price points. We offer tough, overbuilt, hard-use EDC folders and fixed blade knives. Off-Grid uses high quality materials combined with excellent fit and finish, which creates knives that last a lifetime. Our knife designs are created in-house, and we use vetted, proven, and trusted companies to build our designs. Being a smaller company means less overhead, and we pass the savings to you. We are a direct-to-consumer business, if you buy an Off-Grid knife, it's coming directly from us, with no middleman.  Off-Grid Knives' products are sold on offgridknives.com and Amazon Prime.  We appreciate and care about every Off-Grid customer and offer world-class customer service, a common theme you will read about in our reviews. Off-Grid does not advertise, we rely on good old fashioned word-of-mouth...if it's a high quality product and value, knife collectors will spread the word.

Metal Complex, from his YouTube channel with 400,000+ subscribers, describes Off-Grid Knives perfectly, "Off-Grid exists on the ledge between hyper-tactical, utilitarian and the modern knife enthusiast world. Off-Grid always manages to do something a little bit different and more fun from what the other knife companies are doing." 

Our goal is to add value to your knife collection, when you buy an Off-Grid knife, we want you to say, "this feels like a knife twice the cost", this is what we're hearing from our Off-Grid customers. Please read our reviews, customers compare our knives to Benchmade, Zero Tolerance, Spyderco, Kershaw, CRKT, SOG, Hogue, KA-BAR and other big corporation knife companies. The bottom line is, we're doing our best to create high-quality knives with the highest fit and finish as possible and hit multiple price points. Some knife buyers want M390 and Titanium, others are happy with D2 and G10 at a lower cost, we offer both so we can take care of the wants, needs and price points for all types of knife collectors.

You're treated like family when you choose to buy from Off-Grid Knives. We offer old-school customer service, 24/7 we're here for you. Problem? We've got your back...ALWAYS.  You're locked in as we offer a Lifetime Replacement Guarantee with registration. 

On a personal note, I've been collecting knives and drawing and sketching knife designs for many years.  I never thought I would make them; selling knives was a pipe dream. However, I knew deep down I had to give it a shot...so in 2016, I rolled the dice, quit my day job, and started Off-Grid Knives with one knife and one tactical pen.  To my surprise, they sold out and continued to build Off-Grid one knife at a time.  Now with over 75 knives in our catalog and many new designs on the way, I'm happy to say Off-Grid Knives is continuing to grow rapidly thanks to YOU and the many amazing Off-Grid customers...THANK YOU!  

Off-Grid Knives proudly contributes profits to Homes for Our Troops and Concerns Of Police Survivors (COPS).  We support the Second Amendment and the freedom to make our own decisions and carve our own paths without being infringed upon. (I could go on, but I think you get it.) We support and offer discounts to the US Military, Law Enforcement, Firefighters, Paramedics, EMTs, Coast Guard, Search and Rescue, Border Patrol, DHS, and all Federal Agents. If you're any of these or fall into any of these categories,  we offer a discount for you.  

Off-Grid Knives is also a proud supplier to the US Border Patrol (fixed blades and folders).

"Thank you for your amazing customer service and for offering rugged, well-made products for those of us who rely on them every day.  When I go into the field, I know I can count on my Off-Grid folders and fixed blades. That peace of mind is invaluable." -Don G. US Border Patrol San Diego

Where are your knives made? ("Quality is about effort rather than geography.")

Many of our knives and all of our fixed blades are made in Taiwan, our Taiwanese production partner produces or has produced knives for Ka-Bar, SOG, Kershaw, CRKT, Cold Steel and many others that you likely own and carry every day.  The ELITE SERIES "Black Mamba V2" and "Scorpion" knives are built by Bestech who are based in China. Our Rhino's, Raptor, Cleaver V2, Caiman, Caiman XL, Enforcer, Enforcer XL knives are also built by Bestech.  Bestech and our Taiwan partners have strict fit and finish and quality control policies, and they know how to build excellent knives with amazing action, teaming up with them was an easy choice. I've personally met with the owners of Bestech and our Taiwan partners, they are passionate and caring people whose goals are the same as ours, create high quality knives with the best fit and finish possible at affordable, fair prices.

We've attempted to produce high quality affordable production knives here in the USA, but it's unfortunately not possible in order to meet our price points for the customer.  We thoroughly vetted the companies we teamed with, we personally sample and test all prototypes prior to launching any knife into the market, make any changes necessary, we take our time before we release a new knife. Read our reviews, our knives are built to last, high quality, and made for hard-use. 

We understand if you're a "USA only" knife buyer, we get it, but give Off-Grid Knives a chance and we're confident you'll be pleasantly surprised. We offer a money back guarantee AND a Lifetime Replacement Guarantee with registration. You have nothing to lose except overpaying for a "big brand" knife.

"Quality is about effort rather than geography."

What is the meaning and origin of your logo?

We get this question enough to add it here in the FAQ.  The Off-Grid logo is a house or shelter with the USA flag as the window.  The sharp spikes or edge weapons represent protection, independence and self reliance which is a hallmark of living "Off-Grid".  We added seven stars to add a patriotic feel.  Off-Grid Knives deeply believe in these principals and wanted to represent our brand as 'pro-USA' and 'pro-USM'. 

Off-Grid Steel
Cryo D2 Steel:
We love D2, it's that simple. As long as it's heat treated properly, it's a fantastic blade steel. Our high quality D2 is carefully heat treated with a HRC of 59-62, a truly 'tough as nails' steel that holds an edge even after tons of hard-use, excellent wear and corrosion resistance. D2 is considered a “borderline stainless steel” because it contains 11.5 percent chromium. D2 also has a very high carbon content, 1.5% which lowers corrosion resistance because the carbon “grabs” a lot of D2’s chromium to form chromium carbides. The chromium carbides are good for improving wear resistance, improved wear resistance enhances edge holding. Use it and you'll love it... Used in our Ridgeback's, Backcountry CoyoteTracker-X fixed bladesBadger EDC's, Rapid Fire SeriesBackcountry Blackout and others.
An outstanding "Super Steel", M390 is a top shelf blade steel, Bohler calls this steel “Microclean”, it can be polished to achieve a true mirror finish. A third generation powder metal technology, M390 has excellent corrosion resistance and very high hardness for excellent wear resistance. Chromium, molybdenum, vanadium, and tungsten are added to promote sharpness and outstanding edge retention. Used in our ELITE SERIES Black Mamba, and now all of our Scorpion knives have been upgraded M390 steel.
Sandvik 14C28N:
We heard you, and we secured a large amount of 14C28N as we will be using this steel in many upcoming models.  Our new Grizzly V2 and Sierra Chef knives are built with 14C28N, cuts like a hot knife through butter.  Also used in our Caiman XL and Baby Rhino. Sandvik 14C28N is the ultimate combination of hardness and corrosion resistance.  A fairly new steel to the industry, the popularity is exploding and it's easy to see why.  Sandvik 14C28N is ideal for knife applications which place very high demands on edge sharpness, edge stability and corrosion resistance making it perfect for pocket knives, hunting and fishing knives as well as chef's knives.  Off-Grid is excited to offer this steel in our catalog with new models on the way.
Crucible 154CM:
The Rhino V2, Stinger XLEnforcer XL, Viper V2, Stinger EDC and Enforcer EDC use 154CM and many upcoming new designs will also have this incredible steel made by Crucible Industries.  The price point moves higher, but it's an upgrade that many have been asking for and we are happy to offer it.  154CM has an exceptionally good balance between toughness, hardness and corrosion resistance.  You can't argue with Metal Complex, a YouTube knife reviewer with 400,000 subs, when he says, "154CM is the golden invincible God to knife collectors."
