IMPECCABLE CREDENTIALS IN THE ART AND SCIENCE OF KNIFEMAKING

Salient might be a new name in knifemaking, but our passion and heritage have impeccable credentials. Salient founder Marc Engall was a close friend of world renowned knifemaker Stephen Wade Cox and for over a decade was schooled by him in the art of knifemaking.

Following Stephen’s untimely passing in 2016, Marc was inspired to follow in his mentor’s footsteps and create his own range of knives. His vision was to bring together the expert insights and craft skills learned from Stephen, with the expertise in engineering and precision manufacturing of co-founder, Cameron McIntosh, to offer knives that set new standards in performance and style.

After five years in design, development, and sourcing of specialist partners who share our commitment to quality,  we are now proud to introduce Salient Knives.
