Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a license for anything you sell?
No, all of our products are perfectly legal to own in Canada.

Which is better: Carbon steel or Stainless steel?
This will typically depend on the application, as different steels are more suitable for different uses. Today, stainless steels are usually going to be better choices for pocket knives, whereas high carbon steel is still a top choice for swords and camp machetes.

I bought a knife that claims to be “dishwasher safe” on the packaging. Is this actually the case?
Knife manufacturers may advertise their product to be dishwasher safe, but the majority of those same companies also recommend handwashing, as a preferable alternative. Dishwashers may cause damage to kitchen knives in a variety of ways, including damage through heat cycles and aggressive detergents.
