The Montana Knife Company™ Blackfoot Blade 2.0s are made from 52100 high carbon ball-bearing steel.  The cryogenically heat-treated blades provide a perfect balance of toughness and edge retention.  Once the razor edge has been lost it can be easily sharpened with a small stone.  Unlike other knives, the Blackfoot’s edge can be maintained by even novice knife owners.   Additionally, the blades have been parkerized to a black finish which will help minimize rust and glare.  52100 is not stainless.  After use, clean the blade and occasionally apply a little wax or oil.

The Montana Knife Company™ Blackfoot Blade 2.0 was designed as the do it all knife. It is light enough to pack on a goat hunt but durable and large enough to completely field dress and elk.  The thin knife blade not only makes the knife light but also makes resharpening easy.  With G-10 handle this knife will not absorb blood and will also still provide some grip when wet.  This isn’t just another knife but instead, it's a part of your essential gear.  


The Montana Knife Company™ Blackfoot Blade 2.0 got its name from the region that our founder Josh Smith grew up in.  The Blackfoot river valley in Lincoln Montana is on the edge of the Bob Marshall and Scapegoat wilderness’.   Josh grew up hunting and fishing in this area and felt it was fitting to name this blade after this incredible place.  

The Montana Knife Company™ Blackfoot Blade 2.0s have three hollows cuts into the handle to decrease weight and provide a place for the epoxy to bond the steel and handle material.  Screws and high-strength epoxy hold the handle scales in place permanently.   


Customizable Kydex Sheath

Each Montana Knife Company™ Blackfoot Blade 2.0 comes with a Kydex sheath with a quick attach belt look.  This belt loop can be put on your belt without removing or unclasping the belt.  The knife can also be carried horizontally or vertically by simply removing two screws, adjusting the look, and reapplying the screws.

Great knife

I had been too slow on this knife before but finally got one ordered. Just took it on an archery elk hunt. Unfortunately didn’t get to test it out on an elk but used it for a few other things and it was great. Excellent knife.

Outstanding Blade from a Working Cowboy and Hunting Guide

I've owned and used this knife daily for over a year and a half. I've castrated who knows how many calves, skinned several aoudad and other various big game animals, and whatever other random task i've thrown at it. I am extremely hard on equipment (just ask my buddies and employers) but this knife takes it all. Yes, it is expensive. But every handmade, American made knife worth a shit will be. I'm ok with paying for quality. I brag on this knife every chance I can and am complimented on it often. I did loose some mounting screws out of the kydex scabbard. I should've put some loc-tight on the threads when I initially received it but I didn't so really that's my fault. I'm not a fan of kydex anyways and keep intending to build a leather sheath for it when time allows. Nevertheless, I contacted MKC about the missing screws asking if i could order some replacements. Within 24 hours, they do not send replacement screws, they send a whole new scabbard out to me FREE. How can a company get better; Outstanding craftsmanship paired with unrivaled customer service. I will be loyal for life and send as much business to Montana Knife Company as possible.

This one is probably my favorite. This is more of my all-purpose hunter…with a comfortable blade length and weight along with the solid handle for rinsing the blood off is a plus for me!


Great knife for any situation. Quality Merican product. Holds an edge and tough as hell. Handle grips good and the tip is impressive. I'll carry this knife in my pocket everyday, replaced the folding knife. Highly recommend.

The perfect working knife

Amazing knife! The quality of this knife is above the rest. It’s razor shape with good edge retention. Feels great in the hand. I love the sheath too! No rattle and the retention is perfect. The perfect working knife.
