Useful Industry Links from Knife Enthusiast

In addition to being the ultimate place to buy, sell, learn and discuss knives online, Knife Enthusiast prides itself on being a prime resource to the community. As such, we have created a directory with links to some of the industry’s most useful properties.

The idea is to have an extensive listing where some of the knife world’s most pressing questions can be answered in one place. Please use the directory freely for all your industry needs and, if you know of any other relevant sites that would be of assistance to the community, please contact us now to have them listed.

Thank you and enjoy.
