Our Story

“Everyone should carry a knife. We have a knife that fits your personality and lifestyle.”


Southern Grind, Zac Brown’s Georgia-based knife company, offers unrivaled knife lines and unique metal works made by American hands using extremely high quality materials and an unparalleled attention to detail.

As a true knife enthusiast, Zac has always been interested in blade design and production. He created Southern Grind to be representative of what he believes knives should be – ruggedly dependable and highly functional, born from state of the art technology and quality that is second to none. There’s not a single product that leaves our warehouse until it meets the high standards set forth by the man in charge. The result is an ever-growing line of products that all knife enthusiasts would proudly wield, Zac included.

Cutting-Edge Blades.
One-of-a-Kind Cause.

But the mission of Southern Grind goes way beyond being on the edge of metalworking. Giving back to the community is of the utmost importance to Zac and everyone in the Southern Ground family. It’s one of the main principles on which our business was founded. That’s why the efforts of Southern Grind, and all other Southern Ground properties, benefit the development of Zac’s passion project: Camp Southern Ground.

“As a former camp counselor, I know how a positive camp experience can transform a child’s life. My dream is that children of all abilities will have an opportunity to experience the magic of the outdoors. Thank you for helping us create an amazing place for kids to learn and grow.”


We are proud that all of our knives are made in America, and that each one is assembled by hand, with care, and a passion for quality. The manufacturing tradition that built this country is alive at Southern Grind, and bringing those jobs back to America is one of our long-standing commitments.

All Knives are hand assembled in our warehouse located in Peachtree city, GA.

“I got out of the Army in 1980 and have been working in machine shops ever since. I spent 10 years traveling the country working on CNC machines and the last 15 traveling the Southeast training people on how to run CNC machines. I will say hands down this is the best place I have ever worked. Everyone here should stop for a minute and just think about the cause and all of the wonderful things that the Southern Ground family does. Everyone should be proud to be a part of it.”
