A well-made firearm is useful in a lot of different situations, but it can’t do everything. Even the most wildly unique gun still serves only one purpose—shooting a bullet at a target at a distance. Its utility as a multi-purpose tool is narrow, and in close quarters situations even its self-defense capabilities become constrained as an attacker can close in before you even draw.

In times like these, what you need is a dependable, well-made knife—and Second Amendment Sports has just what you’re looking for.

A Blade of Every Shape

Second Amendment has a varied collection of knives – with options for hunting, safety, convenience and beyond. Every knife is a well-crafted piece, coming from manufacturers that we’ve vetted as putting out quality work. We enforce high standards for materials as well as construction to offer only those brands we’re willing to stand behind.

A highlight of our selection is Benchmade Knives. For over 25 years, Benchmade has crafted top-of-the-line knives for clients including elite backcountry hunters and special operations units. The rigorous standards they demand of their products shows in big ways, producing a vast array of options suited to any task.

Materials & Construction

Knives are made from more than just steel. Benchmade provides no less than eleven distinct premium-grade steel alloys for their blades. These vary in edge retention, toughness, and corrosion resistance, so that you can get the blade best fitted to your intent.

Handle materials are held to the same standards. Seven different aerospace-grade materials including carbon fiber, Santoprene, and titanium, all offer various qualities including durability, flexibility, chemical resistance, and dimensional stability. For every job and every environment, there’s a perfect combination of materials available.

Believe it or not, the forms of the knives themselves vary even more than the materials they’re made from.

There are fixed blades, hunting knives for harvesting your kill in the field, tactical knives for self-defense, and survival knives with features for emergency situations. Whether you’re looking for just a simple knife for everyday use or a tanto for hacking through thick jungle growth, you’re covered. Our full selection is at your disposal. Don’t see what you want?
