About the brand:
J&V Adventure knives is a relatively new brand of handmade knives, which are entirely hand made in Spain. Although the knife makers that work for J&V have been making knives for many years, under their own individual custom labels, the brand itself is quite young and only started operation in 2012.
Knives manufactured by J&V are classed as handmade production knives, where all the work is done by hand except each models is manufactured in series and batches, hence in a production manner. J&V knives is a fairly niche brand, therefore their range of models is somewhat limited, but what they do make is finished to a very high standard and only the top steel grande and materials are used for the production of the knives. J&V Knives are great value for money, if you are a collector or looking for a serious outdoor knife that is not owned by every other hunter around.
