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 just wanted to thank you for the new knife that you sent me you could have just fixed the one i sent back, but you sent me a new one this service was remarkable. I will buy your knives again.

The guide was bragging about how fast he could quarter the elk. He started to cut back the skin for a shoulder mount and could barely get through the hide. So, I pulled out the Cub Bear and proceeded to show him how it was done. I finished in short order and I quartered the bull and we packed him out. He was amazed how sharp the Cub Bear was and how it kept the edge. I informed him that I had not sharpened the knife after bear camp and skinned and de-boned 7 black bear. The next day after a double lung shot on a mule deer, the guides knife never left its sheath.

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 wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the quick response and excellent service on my knife. I sent in my Brown Bear Cleaver for service or repair and you replaced it no questions asked in short order. Service of this caliber is rare these days.
