Suppliers

Below is a list of suppliers that I have used in the past and the present. Since I am in Canada you may find it odd that many of the suppliers that I have chosen to utilize are based in the United States. These suppliers offer a wide range of raw materials and all of the equipment needed to make knives. By choosing to buy from the USA almost everything that I order is subject to shipping charges and typically increases my overhead however, I have found that these suppliers can't be beat in regards to selection, customer service or lead times. There are some fantastic Canadian vendors as well and they are also listed below.

Should you ever decide to try your hand at knifemaking (and I suggest that you do because it is very rewarding), these are some of the suppliers that I highly recommend - listed in alphabetic order.



     
Canadian Knifemaker   A Canadian source for knife steels, handle materials and shop equipment.
     
T.U.S. Technologies Inc.   An amazing stencil manufacturer for electro-chemical etching. They truly have superior customer service and an excellent product. I highly recommend them!
     
Tru-Grit   The only place I go to for abrassives! They have an amazing selection of grinder belts, discs or cotton wheels and polishing compounds. They also offer excellent customer service and fast shipping.
     
Jantz   They have absolutely everything from a large selection of knife steels, pre-made gaurds, handle materials including exotic bone & horn, fastners and hardware. Also a good source for equipment like forges and grinders just to name a few.
     
New Jersey Steel Baron   A great selection of steels for blade construction including some stainless steels. They are also a good source for scale materials.
     
Tucker's Pottery Supplies Inc.   For anyone who wishes to build their own forge (gas or electric), this vendor is a good Canadian source for fiber blanket, rigidizer, fire bricks, elements, coils or cement.
     
USA Knife Maker   A great resource for brass and copper which is often used in bolsters, pommels and rivets among other things. They also offer a wide selection of blade steels and handle materials. Knife kits are also offered for sale along with pre-made blade blanks. A great source for the every day knife maker.
