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.

Available now on our knives Accessories page, we now offer Bolt-On Handle Scale kits to fit our Backpacker knife. This is a great fasten-it-yourself option for knife users who wish to remove the para-cord wrap and attach a scale. Scales are made of textured G10 material and come in black or orange colors. Here's a photo of the black kit (includes fasteners and Allen wrench. Backpacker knife sold separately):

Skelotonized, lightweight, fixed blade neck knives! This year at Blade Show we introduced the new ATK (BAKR-BILT design).  ATK stands for Always There Knife. It's a great every-day carry, a fixed blade that is small and light enough to always be there. The ATK's clever sheath design allows the blade to holster in either direction - no matter which way the blade is facing when you fit it into the Kydex sheath. Our Knucklehead knife is another original White River Knives design that has been around for a while and remains very popular because of the integral bottle opener in the handle and the uniquely shaped chisel ground blade. It also comes with a Kydex sheath.  You can click on the link descriptions in this post or find more info on the In-Stock Page at the website for White River Knives.

The White River Knives website now has an Accessories page! You'll find the newest Kydex Sheath design upgrade - available for the Backpacker and Caper knife models. The new sheath is better contoured to accentuate the blade profile. It also comes with a belt loop attachment, fasteners, and a neck lanyard with safety breakaway clasp.

The White River Knives Knucklehead is an original design by one of our family knife makers, John Cammenga Jr.

The skelotonized blade is chisel ground, s30v steel, and comes with a kydex sheath. Shown here in this "trail mix" with pretzels for fun and scale. :) The stonewash finish features textured steel, often the texture is most apparent on the "reverse" plane of the knife - so no two knives are exactly alike. A lightweight, everyday carry multi-tool, the handle has a bottle opener tab. Also available in the premium black ionbond finish (not shown here).

An Instagram follower and knife fan @bmcgear gave us permission to show off this very cool knife collection, featuring the White River FIRECRAFT knife in the center of the photo. We thought the image was really cool--especially how it showcases the comparative scale of the knives in this collection!

Next to the FIRECRAFT are the Victorinox Swiss Army Farmer (left) and the Tops Knives .230 Machete (right).

The FIRECRAFT (as with all White River Knives) is made in the U.S.A. 

Also when we requested permission to repost this photo on iKC, @bmcgear planned to be joining iKC today as a newcomer - so, welcome to the forum!

Related to the FIRECRAFT series, we recently posted photographs of the premium leather sheath on our website as well. If interested, Check it out in the product page thumbnails!
