"The Perfect All-Purpose Knife"

  • Razor Sharp For Thin Slices

    Thanks to its high carbon and chromium content, The Maxsa Blade obtains a score of 58 HRC, providing outstanding edge retention and excellent toughness. The tall blade is perfect for scooping up chopped fruits or vegetables from the cutting surface.

  • Bottle Cap Opener

    We designed The Maxsa Blade with versatility in mind. So whether you're looking to remove bottle caps, lift pot cover handles on an open fire, look no further. This blade notch feature will come in handy.

  • Kydex Sheath Protection

    Unlike leather, our Kydex sheaths are heat molded to each knife and hold their form regardless of the elements. That means they can get wet, hot, or cold over and over — and still retain their shape. They're easy to clean, lightweight, weatherproof, and secure.

Customer Testimonials

We’ll Spare You the Technical Jargon.

Here’s Why You’ll Love This Knife.


The ergonomic handle combines heavy duty Micarta and G10 for a slip-free grip. The full tang and wide blade design provides exceptional balance and strength to handle backcountry adventures while excelling at delicate kitchen tasks.


The handle tapers to fit naturally in you hand, with thumb and finger indentations for an easy pinch grip. This allows you to leverage the full potential of the blade's 18° sharp edge angle, giving you comfort and control for maximum performance.


Our 6.5” Japanese AUS-10 blade achieves 58 HRC for maximum cutting performance and edge retention. The corrosion resistant steel has a beautiful two-tone stonewash and satin finish that stays razor sharp through rugged use from campsite to kitchen.

Collapsible content

I've never heard of Maxsa. Why should I trust you?

We don’t trust websites either. I mean, don’t all of them say their products are incredible? We’re a small but passionate team of chefs and outdoorsmen based out of Virginia and DC. We started Maxsa because we love cooking and the outdoors and want to share that joy with everyone. Give us a try. If you don’t like our knife, just send it back and we'll refund the full amount no questions asked.

I need to feel and use a knife before making a decision.

You're not alone. So do we. That's why we're offering all customers a 30 day trial period. If you don't like our knife, we'll refund you the full amount no questions asked.

Do you offer free shipping and how long does it take?

Our warehouses are located in Colorado and Washington DC allowing for fast shipping to anywhere stateside. Our team members work hard to make sure all orders ship out ASAP.

Is this knife all-purpose or just for cooking?

Yes, it's all-purpose. We've had customers and friends send us videos/pictures in just about any setting/environment you can think of, from home kitchens, campsites, fishing trips, tailgates and beyond.

Don’t just take our word for it.

Our Customers Have Spoken.

    Great for hunting/camping trips

    This is my first time buying from this brand. I own quite a few survival/fixed blades for camping. The shape, weight and sharp edge lends itself well to any task related to camping. The sheath is awesome, probably the best I own. Easily worth the ~$100 price tag.

    Best overlanding knife out there

    Well done guys. I found out about this through a friend in the overlanding community. I'm always out exploring in my Jeep and this is perfect for offroad cooking.

    Second purchase

    I bought one two months ago for myself after seeing it on Facebook. Very impressed to say the least. One of my camping buddy's birthday is coming up and this is the perfect gift.
