What They're Saying
DiamondBlade Knives go the extra mile in finishing off their knives. The fit and finish of the handles is as good as you will find on any custom knife. They are every bit as collectible as they are serviceable.

Do they stay sharp? I recently gutted and skinned a mud-encrusted wild hog in the California hills. The knife felt as sharp as before. In tests, a DiamondBlade severed a 1/2 inch manila rope 300 times and remained keen enough to shave. It then chopped several 2x4's in two---before lopping another section of rope with one swipe!

This is the best folding knife I know of for working on game.
— David Petzal
There has never been anything like this available before. These DiamondBlade knives are stronger and have better edge holding. They give blade performance never before available from any previous blade manufacturing method at any price! I give these knives my highest endorsement?they are the best of the best with regard to performance.

ALASKA EXPEDITION COMPANY
Almost 30 years ago - before the Alaska reality shows - before DiamondBlade - before Knives of Alaska, Master Big Game Guide Charles and Jody Allen were there, 100 miles from the nearest dirt road in remote S.E. Alaska.  Living in Quonset hut style tents for six months at a time enduring brutal Alaska weather while building Alaska Expedition Co.’s “Driftwood Lodge”.  Our full service hunting and fishing lodge and the northern field-test facility for both Knives of Alaska & DiamondBlade Knives.
KNIVES OF ALASKA
The KOA mission, to build “finest quality outdoorsman’s knives”  eventually led to the development of DiamondBlade’s  patented Friction Forging process that created the finest, sharpest and longest lasting cutting edge of any knife in the world.   
Alaska is where we finalize our prototype designs under the most rugged field tests possible, working on the some of the largest game animals in the world.  All Knives of Alaska and DiamondBlade knives are subjected to the toughest field conditions.
