Anza founder Charlie Davis starting making high carbon steel knives from files and the beginnings of his company from 1980-1982. Charlie chooses to make his knives from files because a file is an excellent source of high carbon tool steel.

 

Through a process called annealing, he removes the brittleness normally found in a file. The knives are then hand ground to shape, a handle, commonly known as Dymondwood is then added, and final finishing; polishing and sharpening are

then completed. The final result is a beautifully made knife that will both hold an edge and sharpen easily.

 

His knives are so sharp and hold an edge so well, they have become a favorite among guides and outfitters, hunters, backpackers, and fishermen. They are also widely used as a utility knife by the "workingman". All Anza Knives are

handmade; each one is different in its own way. This is one reason Anza Knives are very popular among collectors.

 

Each Anza Knife is furnished with it's own leather sheath. In order to maintain the quality that goes into each Anza Knife, they generally make the knives as they

are ordered. Charlie said they do not compromise quality in order to ship the knives in a hurry. If for any reason, within one year of purchasing your Anza knife you are not completely satisfied with its workmanship, utility or durability, you

may send it to our plant and either have the deficiency corrected or replaced with a knife of equal or greater value. Anza has been committed to providing top handmade affordable knives for the sportsman and collector.

 

Here is a video of Charlie Davis at his company.
