Knafs FAQs - About Us

Knafs is a colloquial, tongue-in-cheek way to say “knives.” It's also a goofy brand of knife-related products and ideas. Origin: when mispronounced, “knives” becomes “knifes.” With a Southern accent, “knifes” becomes “knafs.” Why Knafs? Shucks, son. The web domain was only $12.99 and we're cheap suckers!

You can find the rest of our story on the About page.

Questions? Comments? Jokes? Email us at info@knafs.com!

Here's how it works: you're reading this post on Knafs.com-- a website and brand where we make knife stuff and sell it. Anything that we design, make, and distribute on our own is Knafs branded. Now, on to the confusing part: our co-founder is Ben Petersen. He designs all sorts of stuff. That's where WIUG (What Iiiiiiissss Up Guys) comes in. That little WIUG you see on knives is Ben's maker's mark and personal brand, and you'll find it on Knafs products, WE/Civivi knives, and a knife from MKM. Clear as mud? Perfect. ;) For other questions, feel free to send them to info@knafs.com or message us on Instagram @knafs_co.

Well, we do! If you have any good ones email us at info@knafs.com.

-Why did the spoon agree with the knife? ... Because the Knife actually had a point!
-Who's got two thumbs and a knife injury? ... Not this guy. It's more like 1.8 thumbs now.
-What’s the difference between someone going to prison and a guy who has a mobile knife sharpening business? ... One gets incarcerated, the other is in-car-serrated.

Those are just a few of our favorites, but we love all jokes. Send 'em over!

This is an interesting question that can be broken up into three categories 

Coming Soon - Some of our products marked as out of stock actually have not been released yet. This will be in the product description.
Discontinued - Some of our products are discontinued, this will also be marked in the product description. These are on our site still for research and comparison, and we love our history why would we want to delete it?
Out Of Stock - Some of our products run out, probably because those items are so popular ;) We have ordered more but they could take a week, a month, or maybe longer to get here.

If you are interested in any of the out-of-stock items, discontinued or not, click the "Notify Me When Available" button. This will do two things. First, it will let us know what our customers want. Second, once the item is here and we update the inventory you will receive an email letting you know they are available.

The Micarta and Cuibourtia Banters are not compatible with other G10 or Carbon Fiber scales... Why you might ask, well...

The Micarta Banter is different from the G10 model because it has a steel liner supporting the front scale. This is critical because micarta can't be structural like G10 can. That steel means this knife doesn't have the flexing issues of the original (unreleased) Micarta Banter. It's good to go. Ready to rock.

The natural nature of the Cuibourtia Banter and Baby Banter - scales also means they will swell or shrink with the weather-- kind of like your grandpa's bad knee. WE worked around this by putting steel liners in both sides of the handle; the flexing won't impact the performance of the knife.

Knafs might have a few Unlocked Composites - Baby Banter scales - Carbon Fiber left on our site, however, we will not have any aftermarket scales available for the Civivi Baby Banter, WE Banter, or WE Big Banter going forward.

If you want swappable scales check out our Knafs Lander's - there's lots of cool schtuff on there.

We've had a few people ask what the coating is on the Black Lander. It's a black titanium vacuum coating. Sound like Greek? Yeah, me too. Let's learn together from this site:

Vacuum coating, also known as thin-film deposition, is a vacuum chamber process whereby a very thin and steady layer of coating is applied to the surface of a substrate, protecting it from forces that might wear it down or decrease its efficiency. Vacuum Coatings are thin, ranging from 0.25 to 10 microns (0.01 to 0.4 thousandths of an inch) thick. What Is Vacuum Coating

I've still got more to learn here because I'm imagining a guy in a hazmat suit blowing titanium dust out of a hose like a spray gun. More digging shows I'm not that far off, and instead of a guy, it's a machine that looks like it came from a movie. Check out this cool stuff! Granted, this isn't our manufacturer QSP doing it, but it gives you an idea of what vacuum coating looks like: Vacuum Coating Process
