White River Knives

A group for all things White River Knives! 

White River Knife & Tool is a small family company with a passion for making high quality knives and tools in the U.S.A. About White River Knife & Tool:

--Custom Quality matters to us. Which is why we precision grind, hand finish, and leather hone every razor sharp knife we make.

--Customer Satisfaction matters to us. Which is why we guarantee every knife for life. If you are not 100% satisfied with your White River Knife, return it for repair or replacement, free of charge, no questions asked.

--And, American Made matters to us! Every single component – from our steels to the thread in our American made leather sheaths is sourced and produced in the U.S.A.

Michigan’s White River in the Manistee National Forest runs through the family property and is the inspiration for the company name. The bear logo was inspired by a very real and very large pet bear. The cement and steel bear cage still stands on the family property. White River Knife and Tool grinds blades and makes knives for other knife companies. White River Knife and Tool also makes blades and tools for industrial and commercial applications.

A recent photo of the GTI 4.5 tactical / survival knife by White River Knives. The knife has a micarta handle and black Ionbond finish blade. Design is by Justin Gingrich, a knifemaker and Army Ranger veteran. The GTI 4.5 is made in the USA by White River Knife & Tool. This knife is the largest in the White River Knives GTI collection, which also currently includes companion GTI 3 and GTI 2.5 knives.

At BLADE Show this year, we met up with USA Made Blade, and they are the first of any dealers to carry our newest knife introduction: the double bevel Knucklehead II. If you haven't visited, USA Made Blade is a brick-and-mortar store (a recent topic of iKC discussion) in Salisbury, NC, specializing only in American-made knives, but you can shop their selection online here too. Here's a picture of the new double-bevel skeletonized knife:

Like the popular original Knucklehead (chisel ground) - both the Knucklehead and the Knucklehead II have a bottlecap opener in the handle, making the fixed blade a multi-tool. The Knucklehead II was introduced by popular demand since many customers had been asking for a double bevel alternative to the the original chisel ground design. Since the original design remains popular, both models (original Knucklehead and Knucklehead II) are still available.

Thanks. We're really excited, too. We don't have an air date yet (it could be anytime within the next 12 months ---hopefully sooner!), but as soon as they tell us the How It's Made scheduled date we'll be sure to let everyone know.

A new YouTube video by Everyday Tactical Vids: interview with FIRECRAFT knife designer Jason Tietz during Everyday Tactical Vid's visit to the White River Knives 2017 BLADE Show booth. (In the video we misquoted our website, it's actually whiteriverknives.com)

Of interest to knifemaking enthusiasts - the White River Fillet Knife is going to be featured on the TV show "How It's Made." The filming crew visited our shop in Coopersville, Michigan today! Stay tuned for the anticipated air date.

Although Robert Burris is no longer with us physically his testing of White Rivers' filet knife is too good not to include
