How We Got Started...

My passion for knives started when I was kid.  My dad gave me my first pocket knife, a Frost Cutlery, when I was 8 or 9 years old.  While helping my grandfather and dad in their construction business during winter break when I was 12 years old, I had saved up just enough money to buy a Spyderco Q-series at a local knife shop in Helen, GA. I remember thinking how neat that shop was and how cool it would be to have a small knife business of my own one day.

Now I'm 32 years old and haved joined the e-commerce community.  My passion for knives has grown exponentially. Every knife I sell on Southern Tactical Blades is hand selected to be a great representation of this company.  I hope you enjoy the knives just as much as I do, and that they help create a great memory in your life as they did mine.
