About Us

Almazan knives are made by a small team of master-smiths “knife makers” in our workshop located in Almazan, Spain.

The history of our lands has intrigued us for as long as we can remember. It was this fascination that prompted us to make the first knife in 1985, from where we have pursued this passion and as part of an effort to authentically outfit ourselves we setup our workshop with equipment similar to that of 18th-century black smiths. Since that time, our interest in history and our desire to make knives have continued to grow.

We have been making knives as a full-time profession since 1988. Our inspiration comes from the history and traditions of early European and American Frontiersmen  – a time when the equipment a person carried meant sustenance and survival. We strive to maintain historical and recognizable styles. Our goal is to make knives of uncompromising quality that will last a lifetime and survive as heirlooms for future generations. Through our work, we hope to preserve the heritage and history of our forests.

Thank you for your interest our work, as well as for your support of custom made knives.
