Myerchin, Inc. is an exciting knife and tool manufacturer who have been in business since 1984, producing some of the best rigging knives ever made. As a small family owned company, you can still get to speak with the owner John Myerchin or one of his close family members. In the early days they specialized in the production of rigging knives and the US navy, US Coast Guard, US Army, merchant marines and sailors around the world were their customers. If you ever ask any sailor about Myerchin knives they will probably respond with “the best rigging knives in the world”. John has undergone several tests, such as following in the path of the 1897 Klondike gold seekers and tested out his knives along the way. His Lightknife was used for all sorts of extremely demanding tasks, even the spreading of peanut butter onto bagels. Even though this company is small and relatively unknown, for more than 25 years they have seriously surpassed the expectations of countless sea faring men and women and have been tested in some of the most inhospitable environments known to man. For some of the greatest pocket folders, sailors tools, marlin spikes and sheepsfoot blade cutting knives, check out these indispensable offerings below. If you intend to journey out onto the ocean you should always keep a Myerchin knife and tool at your side. The last name in Ocean based assistance.
