ABOUT US

Off-Grid Knives® is a family owned, American business, offering high quality knives at multiple price points. We offer a wide variety of 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. We design our knives ourselves and use vetted, proven, and trusted companies to build our knives. 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, no middle man.  Off-Grid Knives' products are sold on two platforms: 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 Knives partnered with fulfillment warehouses all over the country to ship our knives quickly and efficiently with FREE 2-Day shipping on all orders over $99, and 3-Day free shipping on orders under $99. We feel it's worth the extra cost to keep YOU as a lifetime repeat customer. Let's face it, when you buy a new knife, you want in your hands asap!

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. Read our reviews, customers compare our knives to Benchmade, Zero Tolerance, Spyderco, Kershaw, CRKT, SOG, Hogue, KA-BAR and other big corporation 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.

When you choose to buy from Off-Grid Knives, you're treated like family. 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, for many years I've been collecting knives and drawing and sketching knife designs.  I never thought I would make them, and selling knives was a nothing but 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 45 knives in our catalog and 10 new designs on the way, I'm happy to say Off-Grid Knives is continuing to grow at a rapid pace 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, carve our own path 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, EMT's, Coast Guard, Search & Rescue, Border Patrol and Federal Agents. If you're any of these,  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 that 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.

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 ware 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 Backcountry CoyoteTracker-X fixed blades , Viper knivesBadger EDC's, Rapid Fire SeriesSeadog V2Backcountry Blackout and others.
BÖHLER M390:
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 about of 14C28N as we will be using this steel in many upcoming models.  Currently used in our Ridgeback bushcraft knives, 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.
154CM:
The Rhino V2 and Enforcer XL have upgraded to 154CM and many upcoming new designs will also have this incredible steel.  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 100,000+ subs, when he says, "154CM is a golden invincible God to knife collectors."
