The History of and Mad River Knife & Supply

I started MilSurpStuff in August 2005, as a side business, listing accessories for Mosin Nagant and SKS rifles on auction sites. A short while later the website was created and I expanded my products to accessories for other firearms including the AR15, AK47, Endfield, Mauser and others.

In 2007, we started to sell a few knives. After the line continued to grow, I created At this time, sold the shooting accessories and sold the knives. It made it impossible to buy a knive and an AR15 stock and have them shipped together, so we had the 2 sites share one database with all of the products. Now you could buy anything from either site.

With the support of my wife, in January 2010, I quit my real job and I became my own boss. I was working out of my home and after I shipped the packages, placed orders, updated the website, etc., I had a lot of free time. That summer, I decided to try a "brick & mortar" store. I thought the knives would be the more popular product, so I name the store Mad River Knife & Supply. Since opening, the store has grown and we have added many new products and several new manufacturers.
