Toor Knives was founded on the basic principle of manufacturing hard use blades in the USA, at an affordable price.
Connor Toor's initial inspiration was fueled by a growing frustration of seeing teammates in the Marine Corps having to rely on mass-produced knives that were unfit for mission-specific tasks. So, he began tinkering with blades and crafting designs to improve store-bought and military-issued tactical knives. Knowing this would only take him so far, Connor decided to start developing blade designs that would meet all the demands of his job in the Marine Corps. He dug deep into his own experiences, pooled wisdom from his teammates, as well as his Army Ranger brother and developed a list of everything they felt a tactical knife needed to be.
