Collection: Toor Knives

After continually encountering extremely expensive knives in the marketplace, with long production times always attached to them, Connor Toor decided to take matters into his own hands. He started by building a forge in his San Diego backyard and then began crafting blades with a hammer and anvil.

Connor’s initial inspiration was also fueled by a growing frustration of seeing teammates in the Marine Corps having to rely on mass-produced knives that were unfit for mission-specific tasks (after conversely being issued other premium gear and carrying customized weapons). This situation led him to begin tinkering with blades and his first designs came from improving military-issued and store-bought tactical knives, that he had accumulated over the years.

However, Connor soon realized that altering these mass-produced knives would only take him so far. From there, he broke free from modifying existing market knives, and decided to develop blade designs, from scratch, that would meet all demands of his job in the Marine Corps. He mined his own experiences and pooled the wisdom of his teammates, and his Army Ranger brother, Cameron Toor, to develop a list of everything he felt a tactical knife needed to be—and began forging.

Admittedly, Connor’s first few knives weren’t pretty. But after banging on pieces of steel for months, and accumulating a heap of scrapped designs, he eventually created a family of blades that fit the needs of airborne operations, diving, close-quarters battle, law enforcement, scouting, and patrolling related missions.

In time, as Connor and Cameron both started carrying Toor blades on their own Marine Corps and Army issued gear, others began to take notice. What started as one-off creations for buddies and teammates, soon grew to hundreds of orders a month – all of which were shipped out to special operators around the world.
