Since that time, Bradford Knives have supplied thousands of high quality, American-made pocket knives, outdoor knives and kitchen knives to all types of people.

Bradford Knives are not only attractive and comfortable, but they were designed, crafted and created by Brad himself, a lifelong knife user. He uses both survival knives, for hiking, camping and other outdoor activities, and EDCs, for warehouse and manufacturing tasks and as any everyday tool.

As a small independent knife maker, Brad has the ability to design a new knife, prototype it and make adjustments so the final product is of the highest quality possible. Although a small businesses, Brad cuts no corners and Bradford Knives are made with cutting edge technology and high end machinery.

The final result is a creative and unique combination of EDCs, outdoor knives and kitchen cutlery made from the highest grade materials and with the finest attention to detail. Bradford Knives will continue to boldly push the envelope and develop high end knives in an exciting and ever-changing market for years to come.
