Chris Reeve Knives began operations on January 1, 1984 in a one car garage in Durban, South Africa, when Chris moved from full time Tool and Die Maker/part time knife maker to full time knife maker. For a couple years he was the only employee but gradually and steadily, the company has grown to reach its present position as a well equipped manufacturing company and a noted brand in the industry.
Chris Reeve Knives is a production knife manufacturer. As a production company, they design and produce their own knives, as a opposed to a custom knife maker who may work with a client to design and bring his or her knife idea to life. CRK knives are produced in a combination of hand and machine work out of our machine shop in Boise, Idaho.
