About the Maker
I started out in 1988 thinking I could make a better knife than the ones I was buying, and I've been a full-time knife maker ever since. I was a Machinist in my former job, and I knew how to work with steel; but it was harder to get known back in the days before the Internet, so you had to get pictures of your knives in the magazines and also run ads in those mags. Rod Olson was an early mentor and showed me the ropes of tactical folder engineering. Tony Marfione taught me how to do a hollow grind in 1999, and in 2000 his L-CC went gold at the Atlanta Blade Show. Another early design influence came from Joel Pirela; I thought he made a sweet knife and a number of his designs inspired my own. I met Jared Van Otterloo in 2014, and his energy and passion for knives and social media gave me new ideas. I loved his folder design ideas, and he had the ability to support and enhance my own designs and make them better. This coalesced into a true collaboration and my newest designs, starting with the Pit Boss and most recently the Falcon-X. Greg is also an accomplished body builder and martial artist.
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. It’s because of your commitment to uncompromising quality that we are able to pursue our mission of creating the world’s best cutting tools.
