Our knives are made of obsidian found in the Cascade Range of North America. Each knife is handcrafted using an ancient technique called flintknapping, a survival skill passed down by our ancestors in the Stone Age, when it was used to create hunting tools such as arrowheads and hand axes. After nearly 3 million years, this skill has been transformed into an art, and is still used to create tools by traditional knife makers and within Native American cultures.

All knives are made using obsidian stone. Handles are commonly made of antler, cactus, animal jaw, bone, horn, and wood – all sourced legally from Canadian hunters. Wooden handles are decorated with handmade carvings of images representing Vancouver and its diverse culture.
