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
During the 2003 deer season here in North Dakota, I used the Bush Camp Knife to field dress 9 deer which included slicing through 9 rib cages and 9 pelvic bones in addition to normal inviceration and hide work of field dressing. The blade performed flawlessly, and after simple washings with mild soap and hot water was still able to shave the hair on my arm every single time. Neither stone nor steel were needed to restore the edge.

I just received one of your Bush Camp knives. I have to say I'm happy as can be. The knife is beautifully made and finished, the sheath is excellent and the design is wonderful. I am so excited over this knife. Finding something that is so well made, MADE IN THE USA, not dressed up or covered with nearly useless serrations with a blade so thick it will never be of any use but as a pry bar is extraordinary. This is the finest knife I have been able to find. Thank you. Thank you for making something I'm actually proud to own, to carry and to depend upon. Any company that still makes their product in the USA and actually includes details of the steel formulation used is, in my opinion, the finest company it has been my pleasure to discover. Period.

"I bought your Elk Hunter... It was, by far, the best of my knives. Bear hides re tough and I used it to easily clean and skin the entire bear. I didn't even have to resharpen it for my next hunt."

"Bought one of your cleaver and caping knife sets. Thought they were too heavy. Used them deer hunting and they are awesome and tuff. Love them. Excellent product."

– Darren Hanson
"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."
