BSTK was founded in 2017 by two friends looking to get involved in the knife community while still in business school. The original idea for the site came as a result of the various challenges faced by trying to buy, sell, and trade knives on Facebook, Instagram, Craigslist and eBay. We wanted to created a place exclusively for the knife community and by the knife community to facilitate the exchange of knives.
This site was originally created to facilitate the secondary knife/EDC buying and selling market. All users are able to post as many ads as they would like for free. As we began to validate this business idea, we found another opportunity to serve the knife market – by providing services to custom knife makers to allow them to spend their valuable time doing what they do best – making knives – and leaving the marketing, selling, fulfillment, and other transactional pieces to us.
Are you a knife maker?
For knife makers, we offer additional services that enable more traction around your brand and knives. You are still able to build your brand and take advantage of all the traffic we have coming to buyselltradeknives.com, but we do have the ability to get your knives in front of more people though the use of some clever advertising techniques. Don’t hesitate to reach out and we can discuss options.
