Compliance Edge is a Bay Area handmade knife operation, specializing in tactical style knives built by myself, Yoni Wunderman. All Compliance Edge knives are handmade in my San Jose garage.
Each Compliance Edge knife must pass my high standards for design, quality, and functionality before being shipped. All knives that do not make the cut are discarded.
I got into making knives after I was sidelined from Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu, and Combatives training due to a surgery. We had a small shop in the academy that I would use, and I eventually built up my own shop over a year. As the shop grew, my skills and designs grew, and I eventually came to the point where people wanted to purchase my knives. From there Compliance Edge Knives LLC was born, and the shop continues to evolve constantly.
Unlike factory knives, my knives are all made individually from start to finish by one person (although my fiance Ruby helps me out quite often!). Each knife gets my full attention, and is made to last a lifetime. I know that my customers work hard for their money, and I strive to make sure that they are 100% satisfied with every purchase.
My philosophy on making tactical knives is simple. A tactical style knife is a tool that must perform a variety of tasks, not just one. It is common to focus on the ""fighting"" aspect of a tactical knife, but in reality the knife must also perform as a tool since it WILL be used as one. I believe there are no need for flashy grinds, and flashy blade/handle shapes. Simple and comfortable knives, with a proper heat treatment are what I focus on.
