ABOUT US

Off-Grid Knives® is a family owned, American business, offering high quality knives at affordable prices. We offer tough, overbuilt, hard-use EDC folders and fixed blade knives. We use high quality materials without busting your wallet. Designing our knives 'in-house' and having close relationships with our knife makers, we shave the cost and save you some hard earned cash. In addition, 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. 

Using the Amazon model, we partnered with fulfillment warehouses all over the country to ship our knives quickly and efficiently with FREE 2-Day shipping on all orders. 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 blade 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 and other big companies. The bottom line is, we're doing our best to continue 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 with 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 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. With our, "Use-Your-Sh*t" guarantee...you're locked in as we offer a Lifetime Replacement Guarantee!

On a personal note, I've always wanted to design knives and own a knife company. In 2016 I dropped everything, quit my day job and started Off-Grid Knives.  I've been collecting knives ever since my first Swiss Army Knife was given to me at 8 years old by my Uncle Larry, a badass US Marine. I'd spend hours tinkering with every shiny blade and tool, testing the different designs and different uses for each one...I was hooked. If you're reading this, you're a 'knife-nut' just like me and all of us at Off-Grid Knives will continue to produce high quality fit & finish EDC and fixed blade knives that you can kick the crap out of and come back for more, AND give you as much value as possible. My wife and kids are very much involved in the business as well, we're planning on growing Off-Grid Knives with hard work, attention to detail, and focus on YOU as the driving force for our business.

Off-Grid Knives proudly contributes profits to Homes for Our Troops and Concerns for Police Survivors.  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 the US Military, Law Enforcement, Firefighters, Paramedics, EMT's, Coast Guard, Search & Rescue, Federal Agents. If you're any of these, we offer a discount for you.

Thank you to all our awesome, passionate customers...if you're not an Off-Grid customer yet, what are you waiting for? Join the Off-Grid Family and give us a shot!  We're confident you'll be a happy camper...guaranteed!

Sincerely,
Founder/Owner

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

Many of our knives are made in Taiwan, our Taiwanese production partner produces or has produced knives for Ka-Bar, SOG, Kershaw, CRKT and many others that you likely own or carry every day.  The ELITE SERIES "Black Mamba" and "Scorpion" knives are made by the WE Knife Company which is based in China. Our Rhino's & Black Stallion knives are built by Bestech who are also based in China. Both of these Chinese companies have strict fit and finish policies which is why we use them. Any research into these companies and you'll quickly see the respect the knife community has for both knife makers. I've personally met with the owners of WE, 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, quantity needed with the highest quality. 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. Read our reviews, our knives are built to last and made for hard use. 

We understand if you're a 'USA only' knife buyer, but give Off-Grid Knives a shot 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."

Extra Crispy...

Our Blade Steels:
Japanese AUS8:

We chose AUS8 as it is an upper mid-range steel. It offers a relatively high resistance to rust and corrosion, very easy to sharpen and takes a razor sharp edge. We upgrade our Japanese AUS8 blades by giving our steels cryogenic treatments. Cryo's rapid cooling procedure goes further than just the basic quenching process, this treatment process improves strength and quality which provides a much stronger and longer lasting steel structure. It's an added expense we feel is worth every penny. Take all these factors and combine the "lower" cost of AUS8, it was an easy decision. Bottom line, AUS8 gives us the ability to deliver high quality knives affordably and meet our price point goals for YOU. Used in our new Seadog V2 Blackout.

Cryo D2 Tool 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 Tracker-X fixed blades , our new Rhino Blackout, Badger EDC's, Rapid Fire Series and the newest Black Stallion, & Backcountry Blackout.

BÖHLER M390:

An oustanding "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, we plan to use it in other upcoming designs in collaboration with the WE Knife Company.

Crucible CPM S35VN:

Another popular "Super Steel", S35VN is used in our ELITE SERIES Scorpion EDC knives, excellent edge retention, toughness and stain resistance, we love S35VN and will be using more in the future.

STEELS COMING SOON:

154CM:

"The Enforcer" knife COMING SOON with 154CM blade steel & glass breaker.
