We offer knife blanks that have already been forged, hardened, and sharpened, so they’re ready for handles, file work, or engraving. Find everything from Dagger blades to Hunting knives, and a wide range of kitchen cutlery, all at Jantz.

Make your knife stand out with a custom handle. Micarta, G10, and a wide range of natural woods are sure to please. Step it up with Giraffe bone, Kudu horn, and other exotic materials to make a knife that is uniquely yours. Let your imagination guide you in creating your handle and dress it up with our wide range of mosaic pins, corby rivets, tubes, and screws to fasten the handle to your blade.
Tools For Forging, Heat Treating, Finishing, and More
If you’re forging your own knife from blade steel, you need the right tools and equipment. Shop our range of anvils, forges, and kilns, as well as saws, grinders, and drills. Polish and finish your blade with files and engraving tools, or try your hand at scrimshaw on your knife handle.
A Brief History of Jantz Supply
Jantz was founded in 1966 by Ken and Venice Jantz as Jantz Gun Service. Ken Jantz was passionate about gunsmithing and extended that love to selling gunsmithing tools at shows. Over the years, Ken and Venice developed a loyal customer base from the craftsmen they met at these shows, including knifemakers. As Ken and Venice learned more about the craftsmanship of hand-making knives, they became inspired to add knifemaking supplies to their business. Their goal was to make knifemaking accessible to all and provide materials for beginners and experienced craftsmen alike.
Now, over 50 years later, Jantz is the leading provider of knifemaking supplies around the world. Ken and Venice’s children run the daily operations and retain the core values and principles of a small, family-run business with an emphasis on customer service and support.
