RELIC is a new way to learn old skills.

In the foothills of the Appalachian mountains, two kindred spirits, John and Ran, united by their deep-rooted friendship and a shared love for tradition, co-founded RELIC.

Fueled by a collective belief that the world was yearning for the revival of traditional craftsmanship, John and Ran decided to forge a new path.  In a world saturated with fleeting digital spectacles, they aimed to create enduring relics — a classic pocketknife that stands testaments to the marriage of tradition and modernity.

We believe that it is the journey, not the destination that matters. Our RELIC kits come with all of the material and tools you need to build your own knife with your own two hands - learning through experience and likely gaining some scars along the way.
