Testimonials


Our knives are sold internationally, and this means we get to hear what both local people, and those across the world, think of our knives. We are thrilled that we get to share these thoughts with you on this page! 

"Just writing to say that I received your knife. This has been my most-wanted knife for several years at this point, and I have to say, it does not disappoint! I know heaps of praise has been thrown at you guys for your mechanical excellence and aesthetically pleasing designs, so it's not like I have anything to say that you haven't heard before, but I still felt it was warranted to thank you for your contribution to the knife industry a a whole, and especially to knife nuts like myself. I think you've definitely set the bar for tolerance and mechanical perfection. This is by far the most I have ever spent on a knife, and I am ecstatic that my name was actually pulled for a maker's choice (I simply would not have been able to afford it on the secondary market), but it was absolutely worth every penny! It carries well, it's surprisingly light weight for such a large knife, and I don't think I can ever be parted from it now" - Anthony

"I was fortunate enough to fiddle with a Norseman that a friend here in Australia got. It is quite possibly the most absurdly stunning piece of cutlery I’ve been lucky enough to hold" - Mitchell

"Got it, it's beautiful. Thank you soo much! That was quick" - Justin

"I've gotta say, I watch your Youtube channel and I'm a huge fan of the attention to detail in your knives and the obvious pride and enthusiasm you have manufacturing them.  The Norseman is my grail knife and getting that 'Congratulations' email from you guys was like a little Christmas miracle leading up to the holidays.  All the best to you and the rest of the Grimsmo crew!" - John

"I just wanted to let you know I am beyond pleased with my knife. The thing that I love most is how effortless it is to disengage the lock. Like there’s no stick, no friction or anything. It moves so easily! It amazes me. The ergonomics of the knife is phenomenal too, I could use it all day and not have any issues. I’ve flipped it at least 1,000 times (seems like it) and there’s no hotspots on my hands from the stud or tab. That’s awesome as well. I just wanted to give you some feedback. I have nothing negative to say! Also, your packaging is top notch as well. I always appreciate good packaging and yours is definitely good" - Luke

"I recently received Norseman #1505 - my first Norseman direct from you guys - and I just wanted to thank everyone at Grimsmo for making such a wonderful product. The knife is so perfect it honestly can’t be put into words. I feel like I have to become a better person for the privilege to carry it around.  I’ve been following your Saga series and I’ve watched countless videos from Blade about the pen. I would really like to pick one up when they become available" - Greg

"Thanks again SOOO much for my#1499 Norseman!!! I've had it now for nearly a fortnight and the spine tingles and butterflies in the stomach every time I look at it haven't worn off yet. Needles to say it hasn't left my side yet and it's always within arms reach.
