About Us

Continental Divide Knives was started in 1989 by John E. Toner.  John began making knives as a hobby in 1989.  Soon friends were asking him to make one for them or as a gift for someone else.  Before long, the hobby became full time work.  In 2013, John took on an apprentice and novice to begin training him for the transition to owner and craftsman for Continental Divide Knives.  Gregory Naff is now working alongside John and has quickly shown an aptitude and drive that rivals John’s.

Knives made by Continental Divide Knives attract Knife and Art collectors from all over the world.  This work includes Stainless Damascus, ATS34 and CPM154CM High Carbon Stainless Steel blades.  The handles range from simple elk antler and hardwood to high quality gemstone and ivory.  Materials from all corners of the globe are used to make unique items for each individual.  Many of our art pieces are sought by groups for auctions and special gifts.

Our steak knife sets are unique and can be ordered with the quantity of knives you want and carving pieces to match.  They come with unique burl wood holders to display the knives.

Many companies and organizations are using our pieces as honor and service awards.  We will help customize a piece for you and will use your logo and script on a special piece as you request.

At Continental divide Knives, we like custom and one-of-a-kind pieces and would be delighted to discuss your personal ideas and designs to create a special piece, just for you.
