Western New York may be home to more hunting, fishing, camping, and general backwoods living than anywhere in the nation. That is why Ragweed Forge has been a growing success for three decades with thousands of satisfied customers.

Ragweed Forge is a local Western New York business with 30 years of experience in the world of knives, hunting, and bushcraft survival that specialize in traditional fixed-blade knives built to last. They carry an endless line of high carbon and stainless steel knives that range from everyday affordable to high end custom products. Ragweed Forge is a growing company gaining popularity among their followers for their customer service, professional grade products, and commitment to put a quality knife in the hands of outdoor enthusiasts, wood carvers, and culinary artists. Whether you need a knife, sharpener, ax, or materials to build your own, Ragweed Forge is there for your sharp steel needs.

From affordable Mora knives to world-class products like Helle Nord, featured below:

The Helle Nord is the first one of its kind from Helle. There has been a lot of talk about these over the last few months. I just got to hold one in my hand and it sure is quite the knife. The Thick full tang blade will hold up to just about anything in the bushcraft world much less normal use. They sure figured out the geometry for this big blade. It is quite comfortable. This item comes with a genuine leather sheath. Click below for more info on this knife

The Mora Kansbol combines the handle configuration of the Garberg with the blade from the popular 2000. The basic grind on the blade is the usual Scandi, but it also has the additional “profile grind” on the forward part of the blade that thins the blade along the skinning curve. Unlike the 2000, the spine of the blade is squared for use with a fire starter, and it’s left in a semi-matt finish. This is about a third of the weight of the Garberg. The result is a full sized, but light-weight knife that is more than stout enough for normal hiking, hunting or camping chores. The handle works better for me than the one on the 2000, or even the Forest (the other Morakniv that uses the 2000 blade). It’s equally comfortable with the edge down, or edge up. The sheath comes with a simple belt hanger that will take belts up to 2 1/2″ wide. The knife locks snugly into the sheath.
