Strider Knives is a privately owned and operated company devoted solely to the development and construction of edged tools designed to survive use in the harshest of conditions.
The company was founded and is currently operated by former military personnel. The initial goal was to provide a field service knife constructed with the finest components available, yet affordable to the average enlisted man and within his maintenance abilities.
The initial goal having been met, Strider Knives found a ready market for custom-edged weapons and tools with the same component quality requirements as the first highly successful field knives. Many of Striders available edged tools are drawn from customer's specific design requirements. Others are simply the company's ability to look at a potential work environment and design a prototype to be tested and assessed by the workers of that environment.
The background of Strider Knives founders enables the company to assess requirements in diverse fields ranging from the average line soldier/marine through special operations, law enforcement and hunting to commercial diving. Various Strider designs have met and exceeded the requirements in each of these fields.
I am a plt sgt for a Marine Scout Sniper Plt in Afghanstain. I recently was able to get my hands on enough Strider SMFs for everyone in my platoon.
This isn't my first Strider but it is for the majority of my Marines. Needless to say they were blown away with the quality of your product and everyone is proudly wearing their new Strider. If I can I'd like to take a picture of all 24 of us and send it into you all. Thanks again for making a product that can actually withstand the abuse that special operators demand of their gear. ...
