We’ve been making knives since 1928 – almost a hundred years. During those years, we’ve had the privilege of hearing countless wonderful stories about knives, people, and the outdoors. We thought now would be the perfect moment to share these stories. We hope you enjoy reading these stories as much as we enjoyed hearing them. Stay tuned for more stories to inspire your inner wilderness.

Got friends who hunt? Then this is going to be easy. With features to please any hunter, the Martef Skinning Hook is an absolute beast of a knife.
