Blade HQ is a full time Internet cutlery business with a brick and mortar store. "HQ" stands for "headquarters" but over time was simply shortened to "HQ." Blade HQ has become one of the online destinations for cutlery and gear. We specialize in high-end LEO, military and collectible folding knives (folding, fixed, custom, assisted, automatic, butterfly- you name it!). Our goal is to have the most incredible selection of "in stock" knives available anywhere while providing outstanding customer service and pricing.Who runs this website?
Blade HQ was founded in 2003 by Cam Hughes. Cam was unhappy with offerings and service from other online vendors and decided to start his own company (and he secretly hoped he could collect some of the knives he was selling). Over the years Blade HQ has added partners (software engineer Jim Brown and avid outdoorsman Nick Silver) and acquired several knife and technology companies. But at the end of the day Blade HQ is run by guys who love knives.What kind of knives do you sell?
Our knife selection has become vast. We carry folding knives, fixed blade knives, spring assisted knives, automatic knives, butterfly knives, custom offering, multi tools and just about anything that you can think of. We stock products from all major brands including Microtech, Protech, Benchmade, Boker, CRKT, ESEE, Kershaw, SOG, Spyderco, Piranha, Buck, Chris Reeve, TOPS, and more!Do you sell anything else besides knives? Why should I buy a knife from you as opposed to some other seller?
With so many choices available for buying knives this is a great question. Here's our take:
This site is dedicated to the cream of the crop. Any items on this site are first rate. Sure, there will be some $25 knives floating around, but we don't believe that something good always has to cost as much as an organ transplant. Remember the old saying though: You get what you pay for. If a knife costs more, it's probably because it's better. Often the only difference between the prices of knives is the cost of the materials. If you have questions about a specific knife just Drop us a line!Can I advertise on your site?
Advertisements make websites gross. So... no. We don't allow advertising.Can I link to your site?
Certainly. And if we think your website will be of interest to our customers (and it isn't in direct competition with us) we’ll be happy to link back to you on our LINKS page.What’s your favorite knife?
Right now our favorite knife is the Spyderco Sage. We are particularly fond of the Sage 1 with carbon fiber handles.I like your website. What software are you using?
The BladeHQ.com software is a proprietary eCommerce platform acquired and owned by Blade HQ. It's the product of years of blood, sweat, and some crying.
