“the best in the industry”

Smoky Mountain Knife Works was founded in the early 1970s, when Kevin Pipes and John Parker started selling pocketknives at flea markets. Through the mid 1970's, they worked hard to build strong relationships with their vendors and customers, and the business grew quickly. In 1978, SMKW opened its first Retail Showroom. Over the years, SMKW has grown by leaps and bounds, outgrowing two facilities before building its current retail location in Sevierville, Tennessee. Today, Kevin Pipes serves as SMKW's President & CEO. Over 1.2 million SMKW customers visit the Retail Showroom annually. SMKW's monthly catalogs are mailed to millions of mail-order customers, and smkw.com is the best in the industry!

SMKW is great, but even better is the little red brick building in the parking lot where you can forge your own knife! We made 4 knives as a family with Uncle Hank's Knives, and loved every single minute of it.

A fun place to look around. My husband greatly enjoyed looking at the different knives and tools. The lower level had toys for kids, housewares, and fun canned items you don't typically find. They even had practice swords, wooden swords, and a wide range of other items. A fun place to stop on our trip.

Loved this store. My father went in to find and purchase a new knife - I was pleasantly surprised when I found out the lower level included a section that sold gems, crystals, stones, and military memorabilia. The whole family left happy with something meaningful in hand.
