Sharpest blade I've used... I skinned 4 deer with your knife today. It's pretty awesome... Still shaving sharp. 4 deer!

Hey, I got the package a day early. The fit, finish and sharpness of the knife is awesome! You did such a good job on tapering to the point, the secondary bevel and polish. The handle is great too. I like that it's not too thick. The sheath is crisp and snappy... Slices and push cuts very well too!

Why a Hendricks Knife?


Without good metallurgy, a blade can not be ground and sharpened to its full potential. All Hendricks Knives are expertly heat treated to ensure that each knife can reach its full potential. This not only means being able to take a scary sharp edge and have great blade geometry, but also the ability for the knife to hold its edge well.

Blade Geometry

The cross section blade geometry is every bit as important as to how the knife cuts as the actual cutting edge is. Your Hendricks Knife's metallurgy will only be rivaled by its excellent blade geometry. Grinding knives as thin as they can be while still leaving them durable to hold up is a skill that few people truly have, and it can only be learned through experience.


The cutting edge of the knife is what you initiate each cut with. Each knife will be personally sharpened by Matt on Japanese waterstones before being sent to you. He has repaired, reground, and sharpened thousands of knives. So, you can be sure that your knife will arrive truly razor sharp. Get one today and learn the true meaning of sharp!


Being a professional sharpener for over 10 years and working with professional chefs, home cooks, hunters, campers, etc. from all over the country means that Matt has not only repaired and sharpened thousands of knives, but he knows what knife designs actually work and what ones don't. All Hendricks knives are designed to not only look good, but more importantly to perform optimally in the real world.
