Off-Grid Knives® is a small, American, family business offering high quality knives at affordable prices. We offer many different types of tactical & EDC folders. We use the same high quality materials as the bigger companies using the same high end manufacturing equipment without busting your wallet. Designing most of our knives 'in-house' and having close relationships with our knife makers, we can shave the cost dramatically and save you some hard earned cash. In addition, being a smaller company means less overhead and we pass the savings to you.
Our goal is to keep our prices between $35-$100 so our knives can be affordable to everyone. (Our new Premium Series will offer higher grade steels and titanium, the price point will be higher, but still offering killer value.) Our overall main goal is to deliver knives with the highest quality materials and build. The majority of our knives are made in Taiwan and some in China. After searching for the right company to partner with, we chose our manufacturers because they use the same techniques as the larger US companies, and use the latest technology and materials during production such as CNC Machining (Computer Numerical Controlled) and cryogenic treatments. We've attempted to produce affordable knives here in the USA, but it's unfortunately not possible in order to meet our price points for the customer and quantity needed. You may know by now, the level of quality in Asia has gone way up over the last 5 years. We thoroughly vetted the companies we teamed with, sampled and tested all our products prior to partnering with them. (Same production companies used by the big names you know well and likely already own.)
Nick Shabazz said it best when referring to Asian production knives, "Quality is about effort rather than geography."
Our clients include: **Active and Veteran US Military, Law Enforcement (from LAPD to NYPD and everywhere in-between), Firefighters, EMT, First Responders and all around "knife nuts" across the country.

Why REGISTER Your Product?...
We back our products with a Lifetime Replacement Guarantee! We've heard it all, email us and we'll take care of you. For example, we had a customer drop their Rapid Fire Flipper...into a camp fire, and we replaced it on the spot!
When we say "100% replacement guarantee" we mean it. A customer dropped their Rapid Fire Flipper into a #camp fire...and we replaced it on the spot. (Even if there was #whiskey involved.) After the lava bath, still flipping and razor #sharp!

Why do we use Japanese AUS8 steel?...
AUS8 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.
Will you be offering higher-end steels in the future?
Yes, in our new "Off-Grid Knives Premium Series", we'll be offering high end premium materials. We're going to offer current and new designs in VG10, D2 and the newest "Super Steels" in the industry, Crucible Industries' S35VN, Bohler's M390 and Damasteel's RWL34 (used in custom knives, an incredible steel) and Bolher N690 in our fixed blades. This will obviously push us into a higher price point, yet we'll make sure to price it below the competitors using the same materials. We keep hearing from customers that they are willing to pay more for the higher end steels. We listen, and we'll deliver.
The 'Black Mamba' is the first knife in our Premium Series, designed by Off-Grid Knives and built by the WE Knife company, check it out here: THE BLACK MAMBA
