At Reiff Knives, we're hyper focused on continuous improvement and raising expectations. We have a clear vision for a higher standard of production knives that we're determined to hold ourselves to.
We build uncompromising tools for uncompromising people. That's the Reiff Knives standard.
Every feature serves a purpose.
We've taken the time and put in the work to ensure that these knives don't just look great, but that they work great, too. We prioritize function in every form to make sure these knives are the most effective tools you'll own.
Reiff knives are made in USA from beginning to end. The steel is made here, the handle material is made here and the knives are built here. The CPM 3V® steel used to make the blades is one of the highest quality, most well balanced fixed blade knife steels on the market. We're having G10 custom built in America to accommodate our handle that rivals custom knives for quality and comfort.
CPM 3V® outperforms other common tool and carbon steels in almost every category. It's tougher, more wear resistant and more corrosion resistant, so you can be confident that your tool won't fail when you need it most.
CPM 3V® is tougher than D2, A2, O1, 1095 and most other steels you will find on hard use fixed blades.

During development, we 3D printed over 40 handle revisions. That's more than 160 hours of 3D printing handle prototypes. This is the diligence and determination with which we approach every product we bring to market.
We use stainless steel hardware on all of our knives.
You'll notice we use three sets of hardware whenever possible. Why three? Why not two? Great question!
Your knife is the most important piece of equipment in your survival kit. If it fails, you're in trouble. We use three sets of hardware instead of two so that if one fails, there are still two more sets of hardware holding your handle in place and you still have a knife that functions normally.
