Why Bolt Action Knives?

Each knife in the Bolt Action Knife range is hand crafted. These knives aren’t competing with mass produced machined knives; they are in their own league. Magic happens when you use materials like, Damascus steel, redwood, leather, bone and brass. It’s a knife that folds, not a pocket knife.

They are available in 2 different styles: 58 Rockwell German Stainless Steel or handmade folded Damascus metal. The first time you hold one you will be hooked.
