About

DRT BLADES

The knife is man’s best friend of tools. With a design that’s simple and functional, the knife has not changed much over the years. Looking for ways to improve this reliable tool, DRT Blades strives to bring forth the highest of quality and artistry with each handcrafted blade. 

                 
Knives should be a long-term investment, not just something used once and thrown away. Investing in not only a quality blade, but also an artistic masterpiece, will guarantee you a knife that can accompany you on all your great adventures to come.

The Puzzle Lock is a unique blade that utilizes a patent pending locking design and folding technique. Unlike traditional folding knives, this handle hinges on the blade, providing a sleek and firm locked position. The Blade is currently made of D-2 steel, with the hope that later models will be crafted from 1095 high carbon steel. The handle is 17-4 stainless steel and the scale is titanium.

Whether you want a knife for adventure or everyday use, this knife was built with versatility in mind. Wear it around your neck or carry it in your bag for ease of use. The blade is Aebl stainless steel and the handle is carbon fiber.

Ultralight Ringo Neck Knife

Like the original, the Ultralight Ringo is versatile in its ability to be worn around the neck or stashed in a bag or pocket. Its sleek profile makes carrying it easier and can even be attached to a key chain. This is the knife Dave carries everywhere he goes.

Self Defense Credit Card Knife

This is the ideal carry for anyone who has needed a knife in a pinch. This micro knife can fit into the smallest of places, providing easy and comfortable access. The semi-sharp edge is designed with emergencies in mind, but will not cut or damage a purse or wallet. The rigid blade is titanium and 0.032 inches thick.

A little about us

Dave Teidje is the owner and craftsman of DRT Blades. His passion for providing high quality knives worldwide has lead to this campaign. With the hopes to increase his presence as a knife maker, Dave has teamed up with Design by Mark Bartschi and videography by Cailin Tabor in order to bring them to you.

We would love for you to join us in helping accomplish this dream by aiding in funding this Kickstarter. If you’re interested in getting to know us further you can find us here:

Risks and challenges

We are so excited to get our knives into your hands, but since each one is handmade, it may take some time. Our biggest challenge is crafting the knives themselves. High quality takes time, but the money we raise will help to provide the material and equipment needed to make the process faster. Thank you for your patience as we bring you your very own DRT Blade in due time.
