When it comes to knives and tools, our goal is to make things that people will really enjoy using and feel like they got a great deal on what they bought. Some are for adults and others are for kids (of all ages).
While most of our knives are very utilitarian, they are also very innovative. The lock mechanism on the NIRK is patent pending and is both the simplest and the most elegant lock ever developed. It's easy to use and very light weight.
Nathan's Wooden Knife Kits are another great product because they not only give a youngter the feeling that he's just like 'Uncle Bob' with his pocket knife, it also provides an opportunity to learn some basic woodworking skills in the process.
We hope you will try out some of our products and let us know if you have any comments. We'd love to hear from you.
