Templar Knife Launching Cutlery Line in 2022
Dallas, Texas– Templar Knife, the trusted leader of exceptional quality automatic knives, is pleased to announce the launch of their newest line, a high performing cutlery line that will debut in 2022. Like with all of Templar knives, the cutlery line will be produced with the highest quality materials and be backed by a Lifetime Guarantee.
The cutlery category is one of the fastest growing categories in knives, and Templar identified an opportunity to take advantage of that by creating a line that is not only suitable for the outdoor industry, but for the hospitality industry and “foodies” as a whole.
Templar has already received commitments from distributors for its cutlery line. Additionally, the Company has several meetings set up in the next few months with large distributors (both in the hospitality and outdoor markets) and big box stores interested in selling the Company’s new innovative line of cutlery.
“I am excited to be announcing to our stakeholders and consumers our newest addition to our knife portfolio,” stated Shawn Cauble, President of Templar Knife. “Our team has been working painstakingly hard with our manufacturing partners who have hit the design and material specifications out of the park. We set out to create a line of cooking knives that can be sold in all retailers from organic supermarkets to your local sporting goods store, and we have successfully done that.” The cutlery category is on fire and is to have massive growth over the coming years. We feel Templar’s cutlery line will take a big bite out of that category.”
Templar will be launching the cutlery line late Q2/early Q3 and will be aggressively marketing the launch with social media influencers and other media outlets. The reception from current and potential new distributors and retailers has been the strongest it’s ever been for Templar.

Templar Knife – A Knife New to the Scene and Unlike Any Other
October 2021 - (Dallas, Texas) - Templar Knife, founded in 2018 is becoming the trusted leader of exceptional quality automatic knives and is one of the fastest growing brands in this sector of the recreation, sporting, and outdoor markets. The company is led by a group of passionate bladesmiths that recognized the widespread need for innovative products made from the finest materials with one-of-a-kind designs.
Their OTF design is changing the game and knife owners everywhere are wanting a Templar in their pocket. Backed by a Lifetime Warranty, all of Templar Knife’s products are designed and developed in the Company’s home state of Texas. Quality and customer service are at the forefront, which has led to an ever-growing, loyal customer base. From their original designs to the popular “Don’t Tread on Me”, “Let’s Go Brandon” and the US Flag designs, Templar is not only creating a knife for everyone, but doing so with the highest quality of components.
After a successful career in IT sales, founder Shawn Cauble needed a new challenge. As a collector, and having a fascination with knives that dates all the way back to when he was a kid hunting in west Texas, Shawn knew he wanted the new venture to center around this passion.
Shawn’s business partner, Wes Burnett who is the creative mind and innovator behind Templar approached him in 2017 with the idea for a new OTF knife. The stars seemed to align and later that year, they decided to test the market. They wanted their OTF to be the best quality knife on the market for the best value so set they out to make it so.
In creating that product, they also wanted to build a company based on values and beliefs that were important to them. Templar Knife is built on these four pillars: Quality, Customer Service, Education, and Integrity. Integrity is paramount in knife making, and unlike many, at Templar, they don’t cut costs when it comes to blade steel, and they don’t shortcut by buying imitation steels. A Damascus blade by Templar is guaranteed to be a top-quality Damascus.
There are big things in the works at Templar that consumers and retailers can expect to be coming soon. Mainly, there will be significant expansion to their line. They are working on their first folder and hope to release it early 2022. A quality hunting knife is also in the works. This has been a focused collaboration with Shawn’s daughter who has a PHD in Ruminant Nutrition and Masters in Meat Science. With her experience in running meat labs and processing beef, she has a good handle on what hunters need when processing their foods. Templar expects this knife to land in Q1 of 2022. Lastly, they are working on a line for the BBQ Master. This line will consist of a boning knife, six and eight inch Chef knives, a breaking knife, and a slicer. These will all be made with RWL34 steel from Damasteel out of Sweden. The prototypes have surpassed expectations and they are more than excited about how the steel has performed. They have a patent on a knife in the works and they expect this set to launch toward the end of 2022.
“This company was formed to provide quality, one-of-a-kind, proven products at an affordable price with a Lifetime Guarantee. As a byproduct of doing something good and honest it's turned into a thriving business,” said Shawn Cauble, President and Co-Owner. “Following our core values we’ve turned a “pipe-dream” into a category leader within the industry. We’re thankful and blessed that not only are the consumers demanding our products, but brick and mortar is continuing to increase on a weekly basis.”
