The Anza Knives Story
Built for the Collector, Priced for the Sportsman.
Since our start in 1980, Anza has been committed to providing top handmade affordable knives for the sportsman and collector.
We choose to make our knives from files because a file is an excellent source of high carbon tool steel. Through a process called annealing, we remove the brittleness normally found in a file. The knives are then hand ground to shape, a handle, commonly known as Dymondwood is then added, and final finishing, polishing and sharpening are then completed. The final result is a beautifully made knife that will both hold an edge and sharpen easily.
Our knives are so sharp and hold an edge so well, they have become a favorite among guides and outfitters, hunters, backpackers, and fishermen. They are also widely used as a utility knife by the "workingman". All Anza Knives are handmade, each one is different in its own way. This is one reason Anza Knives are very popular among collectors.
Each Anza Knife is furnished with it's own leather sheath. In order to maintain the quality that goes into each Anza Knife, we generally make the knives as they are ordered. Please allow two to three weeks for delivery. We do not compromise quality in order to ship the knives in a hurry.
