About Us

Blade HQ is a knife store of ledgendary proportions. The “HQ” in Blade HQ is for “Headquarters,” and we take this “HQ” stuff very seriously. We love knives and we’re ultra-passionate about selling blades to fellow knife enthusiasts. With physical locations in both Utah and Virginia, we are an ever-growing online retailer of all things pointy, with a brick and mortar store presence too.

We specialize in High Quality (see that? HQ as in "high quality"!) knives from the biggest and best knife brands in the industry and have an impressive selection of folding pocket knives, military and law enforcement knives, butterfly knives, automatic knives, and traditional cutlery– if's it's a knife, odds are we carry it.

We Eat, Sleep and Breathe Knives

In fact, our goal is to be the most legendary knife retailer in the Universe. Lofty, but we’re committed. We’re the type of people that can’t get knives out of our system. We look for pocket clips in public and start up conversations with random strangers about what knife they’re carrying and why. Our desks are littered with the lastest Blade magazines and knife manufacturer pamphlets. Do Blade HQ employees dream of electric knives? Yes.

We are always working to improve our speed and service. Our fantastic associates in Utah and Virginia pick products, box... boxes, and orchestrate order shipments. We take your phone calls, chat with you on the website, and reply to your emails. We care so much that we’ll even draw a picture on your box for you!

Check out this awesome shop tour video to see more about how Blade HQ does business:


Once upon a time in twenty-oh-three (that’s 2003) there was a young gentleman who was absolutely obsessed with knives. Inexplicably he couldn’t find a company that provided the selection and service that he wanted. Armed with a small loan, a dream, and an overabundance of confidence, BladeHQ was officially launched in March of 2003. Over the years Blade HQ has added partners, acquired technology and business adjacent assets, and grown exponentially, but we’re still fueled by the same product passion and commitment to excellence as our founder. We’re proud to be the premier knife retailer on the internet. Don’t believe us? Read our reviews on Google and Blade Forums.
