We first became aware of Grimsmo Knives via Bill Griggs and his podcast interviews with John Grimsmo, the owner, discussing his adventure in his startup bootstrapped business, making high end high quality custom knives.
John and Erik Grimsmo – “The Brothers Grimsmo”
Welcome to the awesome Grimsmo Knives website! We manufacture extremely high quality custom pocket knives using the best materials available. We pour love and dedication into each and every aspect of what we do, and have a blast doing it! We also have over 360 videos on YouTube showing how we manufacture our knives.
Grimsmo Knives is a great story of a company growing and evolving out of the passion of the owner, taking a small idea from the garage to a full-time business and telling his story along the way, completely self taught, starting with less than $5000 and growing it into over a half million in equipment. And they are Canadian as well, so even nicer to see more maker success in the Great White North!
