Rick Hinderer designs are some of the most recognized in the industry. Making a knife that is a hard-use tactical knife which is also aesthetically pleasing is not an easy task, but Hinderer has perfected it. This can be traced back to the early beginnings of Hinderer knives when he began making art knives. From there, he branched into a more tactical design, using his experience as a first responder. He then began using modern techniques such as CNC precision milling to manufacture his knives. They are comfortable in the hand and can be used like none other. So whether your life is on the line or you're cutting envelopes, Hinderer Knives are going to be there.
