About the Maker
Walter Brend is a living legend in the knife industry. He's been grinding knives for over forty years and has gained a reputation for having some of the most intricate and most beautiful custom grind lines around. He specializes in tactical folders and fixed blades that are just the right combination of size, style, and of course functionality. After living in several states, Walter and his wife moved to a rural McMinn County Tennessee home and soon began turning out new styles for collectors in an expanded work shop. The shop is filled with different sized belt grinders and unique equipment needed to cut and finish his one-of-a kind creations. Several machines were designed by him and built by a specialty company. Along with constantly developing new and unique knife design styles, Walter also takes special orders from collectors who have their own ideas. Buyers in other countries often seek special creations, asking for both hunting and collectible knives. Walter said his most expensive weapon created was a sword that sold for $30,000 to a collector in China.
Beginning in 1994, out of an apartment and later a storage shed in Vero Beach, Florida, Microtech Knives was created. More than 20 years later, now headquartered in Western North Carolina, Microtech Knives operates with that same mission at the forefront of everything we do. Throughout the evolution of growth and change, our goal is to maintain the highest standards of quality possible. Microtech utilizes exclusively American-Made manufacturing, materials and labor. Every component we use is developed within the United States and more than 95% of all our components are manufactured in-house, by us directly. Because we use only the best quality materials, and to ensure our commitment to excellence, every Microtech knife is backed by our Lifetime Warranty. Every knife produced in our facility is sharpened by hand. Rigorous testing, research and development ensure that we meet impeccably close tolerances and extremely high standards of quality. We aim to continuously evolve and push the boundaries of expectation, delivering products that set the standard for precision cutlery. From all of us at the Microtech family, we thank each of our customers, as well as those who serve us and our country through the United States military, law enforcement and first responder services. Designed for exactly that reason, our Service Personnel Program aims to provide the best possible tools to those who rely on them the most.
