Huge tourist trap with all the trappings for outdoor addicts! It's a mess in here! Poorly organized, more maze than store, brands, styles, food stuffs, and unique sharp edge products scattered all over two massive floors. The prices also tick the random box, lack explanations on the expensive merchandise as to why some knives are priced into the four digits. Our troupe of four guys enjoyed wondering around, surprised there wasn't food options for such a huge place, upstairs was a bit of museum boxes of slightly interesting stuff, middle floor hosted all the hunting and collectible stuff, and downstairs provided kitchen, toys, and various other packaged goods. There a few guns as well but obviously the shooting needs are better served next door.

My partner love this place so much… every time we visit TN we have to stop here just to look or buy another knife to add to his collection. Unique stuff take hours to go around to see all the stuff inside. The only downside is they’re running out of merchandise. Most of the time they have to see the display because they’re out of stock. A lot of people all over the world come to visit and they can’t keep up with their merchandise. We still had fun sorting all the stuff.

My wife and I have always talked about stopping since the first trip we took to Tennessee, but we never got around to it until this past time. While grabbing lunch I decided to look more into the place and saw that they had the “Relic Room”. We had just got done doing some “gem mining” so that intrigued us both on top of them having a big selection of knives. The moment we stepped through the door we were overwhelmed with the massive selection of knives. We started walking through each story of the store and kept finding more and more things that interested us. Eventually we made our way down to the lowest level and found the “Relic Room”. If you are into history, gemstones, minerals, etc this is definitely a place you want to check out. They have a wide variety of historical items from all around the world and all of the wars. They have a decent size collection of gemstones and minerals. We didn’t get to check out all of the kitchenware/kitchen knives they had, but from what we could tell they have a wide selection of those items as well. We will definitely be returning on our future trips! We can’t wait until we can fully walk through the store and see everything they have to offer. (We got there a little late so we had an hour or so before they closed. Our fault for poor timing.) Obviously if you’re into any sort of knifes/swords this is a must! This has become one of our favorite stores/stops in Tennessee!!!

We went here on the recommendation of friends. We are not into knives or guns but it was an interesting place to walk through. There are things everywhere, animals, waterfalls, gems and artifacts, kitchen cutlery, cast iron, if it cuts you will probably find it here. I’m my opinion it was a very confusing layout. You almost need to be looking for something specific because it’s very overwhelming the amount of stuff in this one building. But…. I don’t regret stopping and seeing the place.

We love visiting SMKW when we are in that part of the country. This time, though, it wasn't as fun as previously. It was a very hot day in East Tennessee, and that warmed carried into the building. When you add a crowd and masks to that, it was on the verge of uncomfortable.

We found a lot of what we were looking for, but they were out of stock on several items that were on our shopping list. Prices are generally good, although some items can be found much cheaper elsewhere.

This is a ‘must visit’ business for me when I’m in Pigeon Forge, and has been since my first trip to the area, as I’ve received their catalog for the last 30+ years. This last trip, (6 days long), I stopped in 3 times and spent several hundreds of dollars, (as I always do). They don’t just have knives and swords, but guns, walking sticks, various novelty items, kitchen stuff, camping stuff, accessories of all sorts and a relics room with antiques and other cool items. Give yourself a couple of hours to browse through the whole place - it’s huge!

We always stop here on our way home from our Pigeon Forge vacation. On this trip my son bought a sword and a pocket knife, I went to the Smoky Mtn Relic room and at first I just though it was rocks on display but to my suprise there were bracelets and pendants to choose from and I got 3 different bracelets there. We also got some t-shirt and cap combinations and some kettle corn. It was not too crowded on a Friday morning and the people who helped us to select our knives and swords were very knowledgable and friendly, We would reccomend this place to anyone who is interested in knives but they have so much more to look at as well, also the singing bears at the bottom level are always fun to watch.

This place has everything you could think of. It seemed like their was nothing you could find here. They had a good deal on ammunition, so we bought a few cases. I still couldn’t believe how much stuff this place had in it. You could easily lose track of time and spend a few hours in here.

This place is huge! Seriously they should have a map because you will end up wondering around until you think you are lost in a sea of people. This place definitely has something for everyone but it is kind of impossible to figure out exactly what you are looking for and the only associates are behind counters usually helping someone so you are left to your own devices to figure out what you need. Every inch of space is covered with either artifacts or things to sell. Overall, fun experience but too crowded and too chaotic for this to be my store of choice.

The selection at Knife Works is beyond amazing. There are much more than just knives at this store. There are things that will interest just about anyone in your family and things you never could have imagined in a store by this name. The only down side is that this place can get crowded at times so you are best suited to visit them during the week in the daytime. Weekends are usually packed and depending on what your interest is you can experience a decent wait for assistance. The gun area can have a good selection but I have experienced a very difficult time getting help in that area on more than one occasion. But if your interest is in knives you will be in heaven at this store.
