Generally we've made our reputation providing expert staff and service to our cruise ship visitors we welcome seeing each year, if you're coming to Alaska be sure to put us on your list. Since you've decided to trek up to the last frontier, and let's face it you've we've always wanted to head north just once, haven't you? Glaciers, whales, bears, eagles, caribou, moose and of course all five kinds of wild pacific salmon call Alaska home right here with us. Along with knives we have a few choice Alaska products to offer as well, we hope you enjoy them.

A message to you from the president:

Brown Bear David Summers

In Alaska, I spend a lot of time outdoors. I hunt, fish and hike out into the wild places every chance I get - and always, I carry the best equipment available. Alaska’s harsh climate and way of life is unforgiving on gear and knives are no exception. Pardon the expression, but "If it can make it here it can make it anywhere!" If I sell it, it's among the best available, tested in the Last Frontier - not in a sterile lab or by a computer simulator. Thank you for your support over the years, we look forward to seeing you again or for the first time in the great land!

David C. Summers, President
