Virtual Plant Tours

Portland, OR

Virtual Plant Tours of Kitchen and Pocket Knife Companies

Did you know that Portland is one of the knife capitals of the world?  We have several knife manufactures in the Portland area. 

  • Benchmade (Oregon City)
  • Leatherman (Portland)
  • CRKT (Tualatin)
  • Gerber (Portland)
  • Kershaw / Zero Tolerance (Tualatin)
  • William Henry (McMinnville)

Here a couple of knife factory videos that teach about knife manufacturing.  While not all from Oregon, I thought it was cool to see the different ways knives are made.
