About us


I've been an outdoor enthusiast all my life, using knives for hiking, hunting, trapping and fishing has been an important part of my life. I've also been involved in marketing and customer service for over 40 years, thus The Knife Connection is a product of these two combined interests.

our history

The Knife Connection was started in 2008 as a small family business. With a humble beginning, our orders were packaged the family kitchen table and a living room desk served as our first office. The warehouse was located in our house basement. The thinking then (and still is now), is that if we deal honestly and offer personalized and professional service, the business will grow and be successful. This has proven to be true, and The Knife Connection is now one of the largest online sellers of knives and outdoor gear. After more than a decade, we are still an entirely family owned and operated business and our vision has not changed. We have experienced tremendous growth due to our loyal customer base, and have thousands of satisfied customers in the U.S.A and around the world.

our mission

To give more than you expect by providing a world class shopping experience for quality knives and outdoor gear, backed up by customer service that is second to none.

Expert Knife Knowledge

  • How To Choose The Right Blade Steel

    It isn't possible to find a steel that rates 10 out of 10 in every category. Selecting the "best" blade steel should be determined by reviewing your priorities of use. Knowing how you plan to use the knife will generally be your best guide to the best steel for your situation.

    Harder steels typically will hold an edge longer, but will usually be more difficult to maintain. At the same time, softer (tougher) steels will not break as easily but will not hold an edge as well. The proper knife steel is a balance of hardness and toughness which is determined by the use of the knife and the users maintenance requirements.

  • Knife History

    The Knife is an amazing tool-an ancient tool for which there has been no substitute. Throughout history, knives have been essential for survival, as well as for providing food and shelter. From its earliest form, the knife developed out of necessity, and its evolution may be traced through the paths of technology.
