Chris Reeve Knives began operations on January 1, 1984 in a one car garage in Durban, South Africa, when Chris changed his life from full time Tool and Die Maker/part time knife maker to full time knife maker. For a couple years he was the only employee but gradually and steadily, the company has grown to reach its present position as a well equipped manufacturing company and a noted brand in the industry.

The road between 1984 and January 2016 has not always been smooth. For many years, the endeavor was under-funded but with determination Chris and Anne put all they had into producing the best knives possible, within the resources available. In March 1989, they moved from their native South Africa and settled in Boise, Idaho. That move in itself was a major undertaking but vital for the future of the company.

Chris has always "pushed the envelope". Whether on a motorcycle or behind a belt grinder, he dreamed of being a world champion. He did not win a motorcycle world championship but in many respects, the standing of CRK today represents one. His induction into the Cutlery Hall of Fame in June 2015 could be considered his championship trophy. The single thought in Chris' mind has always been to design every model with deliberation, taking into account how the knife works, its intended purpose and the most appropriate materials. On this foundation, CRK now enjoys a worldwide reputation for outstanding design, exceptional execution, and the closest tolerances in the industry - all backed by excellent customer service.

CRK is a vibrant business, has a great staff of well trained employees, and remains a company with a worldwide reputation for raising the standards bar - "pushing the envelope" - for the industry.

    Bought my first Chris Reeve knife, a small Sebenza. The workmanship is very impressive. Machining is super clean, action is very solid. Very happy, and will definitely be buying more.

    Ran into a Pacific at my local pawn shop I got a great deal on it, only problem is there is no Idaho Made on the blade. Is this a fake or did you make this model with out it at some point. The knife is quality with the proper sheath..but those Chinese fakes are pretty hard to spot.

    Longtime owner and fan of CRK. I was just trying to get onto the website and found I wasn't able to from any of the various browsers. This may be a temporary issue and your web team may have it fixed by the time you read this, but wanted you to know!
