About Knife Depot

The year is 2004. OutKast’s “Hey Ya” is at the top of the charts. Mark Zuckerberg launched a new site called TheFacebook in his dorm room. And a little retailer called Knife Depot started selling knives on the Internet.

Nearly two decades later, OutKast has broken up, Mark Zuckerberg is a billionaire, and Knife Depot is still one of the best places to buy knives online.

A Customer-Focused Company

We started as a small customer-oriented online knife retailer based in Louisiana with a handful of employees and a basic site that looked like this in June 2004.

Now based in Minnesota with way more employees, we haven’t forgotten our roots as a company that focuses on the customer first and foremost. 

We offer fast same-day shipping on orders purchased before 1 PM CST and a 60-day money-back guarantee. It’s the same money-back guarantee we’ve offered since the very beginning.

If you have any questions or concerns, our razor-sharp customer service team is always ready to help.

Unmatched Knife Expertise

Not only are we one of the oldest online knife retailers but we also currently have the longest-running knife blog on the Internet — The Cutting Edge. To say we know and love knives is an understatement.

We carry a carefully curated list of knives from established brands like Benchmade and Kershaw and knives from unknown or up-and-coming brands like CobraTec.

If we don’t have the knife you want, let us know and we’ll help you track it down.

State-of-the-Art Engraving

We’ve been offering laser engraving on our knives since almost the beginning. The only difference is now we have the best engraving equipment available and partnerships with local engravers to fulfill larger orders as fast as possible.

Our skilled laser engravers have personalized literally thousands of knives, so you can rest assured that we'll do the job right.

In fact, our personalized knives are so renowned they were even given as gifts to Motley Crüe!

Never Lose Your Edge

One of our earliest taglines was Never Lose Your Edge, and that's still a motto we live by. We're always working to improve and stay as sharp as ever.
