R. Murphy Knives is one of the oldest and among the few remaining knife manufacturers in the United States. Founded in Boston in 1850, we have long supported the regional industries that helped build this country, from paper, leather, shoemaking and textiles, to fishing and oystering.  Using the finest steels, all our knives are handcrafted, a rarity in an automated world. We are passionate about keeping traditional methods and creating innovative designs that deliver the sharpest cut time after time.
