Who We Are

Chapman Lake Knives was started by two brothers as a small, family-owned and operated business based in Bloomington, Indiana. We specialize in blades made from the highest-end American materials and the most precise engineering standards on the market.

The company is a subsidiary of Chapman Lake Instrument, which produces orthopedic implants, surgical tools and blades. The lead designer of these knives, with his background in aerospace engineering combined with the company’s surgical blade capability, set out to build the best-performing knives on the market. All manufactured right here in the USA.
