About Us

Dear Knife Enthusiast!

Welcome to AIK- Adams International Knifeworks!

Since 1987, we have offered the most Unique Opening Knives and Accessories to Collectors, Firefighters, Law Enforcement, Military, and Rescue Personnel all over the World.

We are a family based business that specializes in Automatic Opening Knives for Collectors and those who depend on them for their profession. We have been selling automatic knives before there was an "internet" and helped design and distribute Benchmade's first automatics.

We worked with Al Mar, and distributed his automatic; the "GPA" (General Purpose Auto), and worked with A.A. Sanders and Mike "Whiskers" Allen, (Protech has two automatics based on Whisker's design), and helped them to introduce their coil fired scale release autos.  We have seen many makers, dealers, and companies come and go over the years, however AIK has been, and will always be, the original and best automatic knife-switchblade dealer.

We have one of the Largest Selections of Automatic, One Hand Opening, Switchblade, Gravity Fed and Unique Opening Knives available and offer the collector and professional Exclusive Automatic Knives found nowhere else.

We are Authorized Dealers for Benchmade, Protech, Piranha, Microtech, Hubertus, AGA Campolin, Hogue, Gerber, Kershaw, and many other High Quality USA brands that offer a Lifetime Warranty on their products. In addition to these brands our special contacts in Germany, Italy, France, Czech Republic, and Russia to bring you the rarest knives from around the world.

AIK's Custom Shop produces the most Beautiful Knives available, turning the ordinary into extraordinary, and making those everyday pieces that everyone else has, into one of a kind knife art for the finest collection at a very affordable price!.

Our Master Engraver Andrew Lee Adams produces some of the most beautiful pieces in the industry, and has worked with several knife companies and makers as collaborations. In addition to engraving, we also specialize in Hand File Work,  Milgrain Work, Handle & Inlay Replacement,  and Stone Setting, and can apply these arts into your current knife; manual or auto opening. We also offer some of the finest Custom Handmade Models from the most recognized names in the Auto-Knife /Assisted Opening industry. 

In addition to automatic knives, we have the largest selection of Bowies, Daggers, Skinners, Hunting and Survival Knives from William "Bill"  Miller (Warsaw, MO)  & Amish Maker Sam Stoner (Scottsville, KY),

We are always interested in purchasing your knife collection, whether it is one piece or 1000 pieces, and are known for offering the best price. We also offer a Layaway plan for most every item we offer, and can sell your knife (co-sign) your knives for you. Email us if you have a collection for sale, if you would like to put an item in a payment plan, or would like us to co-sign one knife or your entire collection at  adamsknifeworks.com@gmail.com
