Most of our knives are made in Asheville or by local Carolina craftsmen. The area has a long standing history of cutlery, smelting and black smithing that stretches back into the late 1700�s when the lands here were first settled by Scotch-Irish and Anglican pioneers. Area art colleges and trade schools extended the craft into the current era. Paragon Knives has a long history in this area.
There are several types of our knives that are produced overseas, but none are cheap Chinese knock offs. Several lines of our knives are made in Japan by blade makers that also design traditional Japanese katanas and short bladed tantos.
Paragon is still owned and operated by a local family from the Asheville area. Robert Anderson, a native of the area, acquired Paragon from it�s founder and helped to expand it�s offerings. The Anderson family continues the region�s fine legacy of well made, durable and also beautiful blades.
When you purchase a Paragon, you are buying one of the best knives on the planet.
