American Knife Makers

Top 5 American Made Pocket KnivesBuck 110, Spyderco Military, Benchmade Osborne, Case Swayback Gent, Kershaw Blur, Benchmade Adamas, Kershaw Leek, Spyderco Dodo and Medford. We start the list with one of the most iconic knives in the world and here is also a pocket knives list from base model to high end top sellers. Introduced by Case in the 1920s, the Trapper remains Case's most popular model. The Trapper has a basic blade for catching and skinning (a clip and spey blade) that was directly inspired by the knife.

This is the knife of choice for those looking for versatility. With nearly 100 years of production, it's no surprise that the Trapper is not only among Case's most collected patterns, but also one of the most iconic. The original Leek features a perfectly sized 3-inch shot blasted drop point blade made of Sandvik 14C28N steel with a keen edge. The handle itself is blasted 410 stainless steel, making it durable yet surprisingly natural in the hand.

It has a nice slim design for anyone who wants a truly portable knife that can handle just about anything. In 1960, the 8OT was only the second Old Timer produced (the 2OT was the first, but it is no longer in production). The well-known Stockman pattern was not an original pattern, but the Old Timer line was launched during a time when designers were looking to make the newest and most advanced knives. If you ask a layman for a list of the best knives of all time, the Sebenza probably wouldn't be on the list, but any knife enthusiast would put the Sebenza at the top.

Sebenza's first production was introduced in 1990 and has been one of the most influential and sought-after knives of the last 50 years. Although it was designed to act as a large folding knife used for the butcher shop and skinning game, the knife quickly gained popularity among casual knife users.

 

Buck Knives

The Buck 110 is surprisingly large with a blade length of 3.75 inches, but the clip tip proved to be extremely useful. The knife also has those delicious brass reinforcements and a grain wood handle.

Part of the reason the Buck 110 is so easily recognizable is that it has been one of the most imitated knives in history. In fact, the Model 110 has led to other favorite knives with a similar design being simply referred to as a Buck knife. If that weren't enough to earn a spot on the list, Buck has sold more than 15 million of these automatic knives, making it one of the best-selling benchmade knives in history. When it was released in 1990, the Endura was teased for its strange and unconventional look, but it became much appreciated and copied frequently.

The knife pioneered the modern tactical briefcase and introduced the thumb hole, making one-handed opening in a daily carry a must. As the name implies, the USMC Utility was designed to be a multipurpose knife that could be used in combat or general purpose. The recognizable knife has a 7-inch blade made of Cro-Van 1095 steel along with a comfortable leather handle. Similar to what happened with the Buck 110, the Sharpfinger essentially became a generic term used for knives of this style with black coating, but the Old Timer version was the original.

Benchmade, which always impressed hard-knife enthusiasts, didn't really connect with the masses until the Griptilian designed by Mel Parduo jumped on the scene with its 154 cm steel handle and grip. And while the Benchmade 710 has the privilege of being the first to use the innovative AXIS Lock, it was the Griptilian that really popularized the acclaimed mechanism with clean ball bearings and a traditional lockback. Similar to the way the Buck 110 took off after its introduction, the Buck 119 was an instant hit with hunters and nature lovers. The Buck 119 Special is a fixed-blade hunting knife with an instantly recognizable look and a rich history.

As Buck's best-selling fixed blade, the 119 showcases the company's excellent craftsmanship with a powerful and versatile knife. The 6-inch 420HC stainless steel blade makes the knife something of a smaller Bowie knife, while the phenolic handle with guard gives it a classic touch. Pronounced Felk-nee-ven, Fallkniven is a Sweden-based manufacturer that is best known for supplying high quality military and outdoor knives, and the F1 is the company's strength piece. Since 1995, the F1 has been the official survival knife for all Swedish Air Force pilots, and the knife was so well received that it was even tested and approved for use by air crews in the Marines and the U.S.

UU. Since its launch, the F1 has become something of a benchmark for all other survival knives and has started a trend in which functionality and simplicity surpass flashiness and tricks. Carson Knife Kit was a true master of innovation and thought a lot about his knives, but the CRKT M16 is by far the most iconic of his creations. Introduced in 1999, this relatively new knife has made a big impact on the knife world with a new vision of what could be an affordable tactical knife for everyday carry.

The M16, based on Carson's custom design, has been one of CRKT's best-selling and most received series. But what really makes this knife iconic and transcendent is the Carson Flipper. Although the flap opening mechanism had already been seen in previous knives, it was the M16 that helped popularize the now widespread opening system. Since its inception, the knife has been significantly improved with enough versions to meet and exceed the needs of anyone.

The M16z is the culmination of these improvements with a 3.5-inch AUS8 premium steel blade with CRKT patented InterFrame and AutoLawks construction. And, of course, it has the fin now always present. In the 1970s, Timothy Leatherman set out to design an explorer's knife with pliers when he found that a typical multi-tool was too limiting. Eventually successful with the original (now retired) Leatherman tool, but continually improved the design until Wave.

As Leatherman's most popular model, the Wave has set itself apart from the rest by offering 17 different tools made of durable 420HC stainless steel. The best part is that the Leatherman Wave locks when closed, making it easy to fit in your pocket. The Spyderco Endura and Delica offered something new, but the Spyderco Military is probably the most imitated and well-known Spyderco Military of all Spydies with a bear edge and lock stick. Since its launch in the 1990s, the Armed Forces, which are the cornerstone of the Save and Serve line, have been in the hands of tons of people, especially the military, police officers and rescue services.

The popularity of the Blackberry has only grown in the last 100 years having several factory location: and it has become extremely common in the world of forest crafts due to its durable and sensible design compression lock and ball bearing pivot. Medford knife and tool makes some of the highest-end boutique knives on the market. Medford knives are American made and definitely expensive, but extremely well made and meant to last a lifetime. Buck is one of the most iconic American knife companies in history, so it was a special disappointment when they started making wide variety of cheap knives in Taiwan around the birth of the millennium all of them with a liner lock and ceramic ball. American-made pocket knives are available in a variety of different styles, models, designs, and brands, and some models are even designed to withstand all kinds of extreme conditions and climates. Any list detailing the best American-made EDC knives isn't complete, not to mention the Benchmade 940 Series.

Where Warther cutlery differs from other American knife staples is that they never opted for high-impact combat knives or military contracts. American-made knives are harder to find in chain stores and now even local hardware stores seem to have Made in China in most of the inventory for sale. The United States has created a large number of large knife companies such as Buck, Gerber and SOG, which have created iconic American knives and have maintained a certain reputation as being made in the United States. Right now, a general rule you can follow is that if a SOG knife sports S30V steel, it was put together in your American factories.

Consider these American-made pocket knives for your next hike, camping, hiking, or fishing trip. All of their American-made ballistic knives appear to be hunting and bushcraft designs with 1095 steel, so I guess all of their titanium joining equipment must be overseas, in China or Taiwan like santoku knives. For most of their history, they manufactured various tools and blade types like asian blades, japanese knives ,8-Inch Chef's Knife and chronic blade for border settlers, law enforcement, but now they are the largest American manufacturer of kitchen cutlery. They are probably worth reading if you think you might want to buy a knife from this American company.

 

Also, although I see posts about them making a lot of personal prototypes and building their knives, it seems that they are using a US OEM to make the knives for sale. . .
