List of products by manufacturer Hazen Knives


In August of 1976, Mark Hazen started his career as a custom knife maker.  At that time,  he could not afford to purchase a custom knife, so he decided to make his own.   That's when it all began.  Initially, Mark made knives for his friends and eventually, his creative talent was sought after by customers throughout the USA.  After 30 years as a renowned knife maker, Mark decided to retire in 2007.  On September 23, 2013, he received a call from Colonel Jack Tobin, president of The Special Forces Association at Fort Bragg, NC.  While at an estate auction preview, Colonel Tobin saw a knife which he felt  would be perfect for Special Forces active duty personnel, as well as the members of the association.  Mark came out of retirement and began his journey by making a knife in honor of his fallen friend, MSG Robert Horrigan, a Special Forces Operator stationed at Fort Bragg, NC.


Mark Hazen, who mastered the art of knife making over the past 30 years, is reintroducing classic old world craftsmanship in new and innovative designs.  Each knife is hand made without the use of jigs.  The blade and edge geometry has been engineered into each model to ensure optimum performance for its intended use.  The ergonomically designed handles are specifically contoured to give a comfortable and confident grip.  Each Hazen knife is uniquely crafted and well suited for all military and law enforcement personnel, sportsmen and the discriminating collector.


All the knives produced at Hazen Knives go through a 3-phase testing process to ensure that each knife meets uncompromising quality standards.  Each batch of steel is tested since all are not exactly the same.  One knife is made from each new batch and is rigorously tested by chopping through a 2X4 piece of lumber and cleanly slicing through a piece of 20 lb. paper.  If the hardness and edge retention meet the standards of phase one, the cutting test,  then the testing continues to phase two, the comfort test and phase three, the fit and finish test.
