About us

In Today’s “Fluff with Little Substance ” Products and Services World, Our 1790 Knife Brand Was Created

You just don’t accidently create a great knife and tool company. There has to be a purpose, a solid mission. That’s what we’ve created. An incredible brand with a purpose. Our purpose is to serve you, our patron… our customer… with an incredible value and we will also stand behind our product completely!

Headquartered in historic Pendleton, South Carolina, founders and knife geeks with know-how Dallas Henry and Bill Mooney discovered a big void in the knife trade in terms of value, old-school craftsmanship, substance, follow-through, and the need to treat customers as customers, not buyers.

So, Pendleton 1790 Knife & Tool was created to fill the huge customer-centric void and provide amazing value in the mid-to-premium priced knife market.

You may ask why the “1790″ part of our trademark.

Not only was 1790 the year Pendleton, SC was founded, 1790 was a critical year in the founding of our great country. Become part of the “1790 Knife” family and you will share in the historic stories, quality foundation of our country, and what happened that amazing year. On the journey, you will learn and clearly understand why we chose “1790 Knife” and the values our great nation was founded on. You may even adopt some of the 1790 values in your life along the way.

Our goal is to create a company culture with the great southern hospitality the South is famous for. We will treat you like family, ok… the family you like. The ones on speaking terms! And we will stand behind our products!
