Presented by The Medford Guy – Derived from a reverence for Medford knives and the embodiment of a Medford knife lifestyle, The Medford Guy is a venture that originated as Pip’s Knives and rapidly evolved into the passion project it is today. As a certified dealer and firm believer in the quality product Medford Knife and Tool produces, The Medford Guy proudly represents the hand-crafted, merciless and all-around “bad-ass” knife for which Medford is esteemed. In his own words, Jake Smith who has come to be known as “The Medford Guy,” is obsessed with Medford knives.
Arizona native, Greg Medford, is responsible for the vision of Medford knives: a small-scale manufactured, hand-crafted knife that brings the all-American consumer back to his roots. Medford profoundly believes in pragmatism, hard work, honesty, love of one’s country and treating people right. Born among generational family-owned businesses and surrounded by cattle and dust, Greg Medford forged an innovative path designing quality knives inspired by Yankee ingenuity, Western freedom, family, and community.
In admiration of the values Greg Medford and Jake Smith hold dear, the quintessential ‘Medford Guy’ is capable of anything and respected by all. For Smith, that starts with a knife. He says, “Before you strap on your watch; before you spray on your signature smell; you must first clip in your knife.” For what may come of the day, a Medford knife guarantees preparedness. In the most demanding environments that require tough action, Medford knives ensure a mission accomplished.
Medford knives are crafted with clean lines and minimal design elements, focusing more on substantial structure and functionality. The blades are typically formulated from D-2 steel, CPM-S35VN stainless steel and CPM3V steel. A titanium, G-10, carbon fiber, or Paracord handle is designed for a sturdy grip. The Medford Guy takes pride in bridging consumers with the manufacturer of top-of-the-line knives, offering the best and newest Medford knives as an exclusive dealer.
