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 wanted to commend Knives of Alaska on an outstanding product. For the price, I have never had a better heat treat and quality steel."
– Alan Wilkinson
Another gem in the KOA line is the Alpha Wolf. This sleek, 3.5-inch blade, dropped point hunter is a delight to use.

I am a life long user of outdoor knives and have never seen products of such superior design

I have been using two of your knife combo kits for years now and I have to say they are outstandingly tough, stay sharp and are extremely rugged. I have hacked through the ribs of elk, caribo, black bear and deer of all sorts with the clever and never had the slightest hesitation to do so I know the steel will not chip. I have and will continue to recommend your products to other hunters like myself. Thanks.

"Thank you so much for calling/emailing to clarify about the extra sheath. That tells me that Knives of Alaska is truly concerned with complete customer satisfaction, which is so hard to find this day and time. Again that is very much appreciated and it's a pleasure doing business with you."
