About Us

Thank you for visiting EKNIVES, a Chattanooga, Tn family owned and operated retailer of high end custom and production edged tools. None of this would be possible with the help of my beautiful wife Courtney and my daughter Olivia. Together we make sure EKNIVES makes you the customer priority number 1.

An avid knife enthusiast, Clayton Ensminger operates EKNIVES, a small family owned and operated business out of Chattanooga, TN. His father gave him his first survival knife for his birthday after First Blood hit the theaters in 1982. He runs EKNIVES with his wife, Courtney, and they are joined every day by Elle and Knox, their beloved French bulldogs and shop companions. Elle and Knox help out by basically trying to disrupt anything and everything and enjoy a high success rate at playful hijinks.

This is Elle and Knox, our Frenchies!  If you follow me on Instagram @_eknives  or my wife @cocoeknives then you will likely see them often. They are our pride and joy!
