Letter from the President

A person's choice of outdoor gear, especially that of hunters and fishermen, is a source of personal pride and satisfaction. That doesn't mean you must have the most expensive gun, rod, knife, boots, or whatever, but the gun should be clean, well maintained, and accurate. Your knife should shave, and hopefully the boots will be well broken-in before tackling a major extended hunt. As outfitters in Alaska, we have guided hunters and fishermen into the Alaskan bush for years. One fact is - and has always been - 1: each man's gear is going to play a major role in determining his success, comfort, and enjoyment.

At Knives of Alaska, we understand what it means to rely on your gear. We've never lost sight of the fact that the knife of a dedicated hunter, fisherman or outdoorsman has two important aspects. First, and most important, it is a precision tool that must perform the task at hand efficiently, safely, and reliably time after time, year after year. Second, a man's knife is an investment and one of his personal objects of pride. It is a measuring stick among his peers.

We make award-winning outdoorsman's knives that are used and respected by some of the best professional guides and outfitters, hunters, and other outdoorsmen in Alaska, and across the globe. To say that our knives are field-tested is an understatement. We carry them across Southeast Alaska's glacier fields, through swamps, across tundra, and in the mountains, using them in all manner of chores. If something doesn't work, it gets corrected or eliminated in a hurry!

All of our knives, from our new line of folders to our award winning cleavers, our hatchets, combination sets, and fixed blade hunters, are quality outdoor cutlery for the self-reliant outdoorsman who demands the very best in his gear. It doesn't matter if you're hunting whitetails in a local woodlot or after a big Alaskan brown bear, your gear will still be one of the things that sets you apart and makes the hunt more enjoyable. Our promise to you is that our lifetime guaranteed knives are made to exacting quality standards that will ensure satisfaction and pride of ownership. They work for us in the harsh field conditions of bush Alaska-and they will work for you, time after time, year after year-wherever you hunt or fish.

Thank you for your confidence in our products. Enjoy the great outdoors and be sure to take a youngster hunting and fishing with you.

Charles Allen,

President and Owner

What They're Saying
I am awed by your knives and use the Cub Bear for the majority of my skinning work. I have skinned and dressed 6 deer and 3 large hogs with this knife and still have not sharpened it. The first time I pulled it out at camp for a hog everyone thought it was funny but changed their mind pretty fast when they saw it in action. When I finished the second hog without sharpening they were very impressed. Thanks for great equipment. You have outdone yourself in design and quality.

"After getting several recommendations about your knives, I bought your Elk Hunter in Fairbanks. After a successful hunt, I used it to skin a butcher my black bear. It was by far the best of knives that I carried with me. Bear hides are tough and I used it to easily clean and skin the entire bear. I didn't even have to re-sharpen it for my next hunt. Also surprisingly, it did not rust or tarnish as I had expected in the harsh field conditions. The D2 steel in your knives is superb. Thanks for a great knife."

Just wanted to take a moment and tell you that I am very impressed with the KOA knives. I currently own , 2 feather weights and the extreme survival. They are well made knives that hold a fantastic edge, looks great, and best of all Made in the USA. I have quite a few knives as I am an avid outdoorsmen but really, really love the KOA ones ! Even been up there to Alaska on a few survival missions in the bush alone.. so the importance of a great knife is a matter of life and death.

Just wanted to say great job and looking forward to purchasing many more to add to my growing KOA collection.

Love the alpha wolf! Perfect design and feels great in hand. Bought my cousin one last year, myself one this year and a muskrat. Super sharp best hunting knife I've ever used. You have a customer for life, thanks for a great product!
