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.
