About Us

Ivan LaneyWelcome to Knife Lover! My name is Ivan and I love knives.

Recently living and working in Southern California as a sous chef at various leading hotel chains, I’ve been fascinated by knives ever since my childhood in the Rocky Mountains. My career has made me passionate about all aspects of knives and I love sharing what I discover.

The proud owner of over 2000 different kinds of knives, my collection fascinates people as I get requests to look at some of the most beautiful blades on the planet.

My love for knives inspired me to make this website. I’ll be reviewing and researching the history of every knife I discover, from the cheapest utility blades to the most sought-after works of modern day blacksmiths. Spreading “Knife Love” around the world is the intent of this site.
