Navy Seal. Entrepreneur. Builder. Stuntman. American. Patriot. Half Face Blades is Andrew Arrabito's brand, His team hand makes, “go to” knives and axes – usable, personalized, functional, versatile tools that work for every person in every walk of life. Andrew grew up hunting, camping and fishing in the great outdoors. After high school he joined the US Navy, determined to achieve the honor of serving in the United States Navy SEAL Teams. It was during his time in the Teams that Andrew decided to bring the “end user” back to the beginning, to learn blade-smithing. From the beginning, Andrew’s goal was to make simple blade designs for consumers who demand the finest products. With his real-world experience in using cutting devices in super-charged action, Andrew understands what will be demanded from his blades. And he makes them to meet those demands. Half Face Blades knives are designed with the distinction and ruggedness required for the work they are intended to do. Each knife is calculated to meet requirements gained by experience, by testing knives and axes, by using them over time at sea and in remote wildernesses. HFB knives bring the soul of rugged, dependable, combat knives and tools to a variety of settings - from special operations tools for warriors, hunters and backpackers, to knives for the kitchen and great American workers.

Sizing and Fit
STRETCH FABRICS - Allow for us to make an ergonomically designed and better performing pant that uses less fabric, meaning less chance of things getting caught on machinery or flapping the the breeze when you're riding your motorcycle to work
MODERN FIT - All 1620 Workwear pants feature a modern fit. This means our waist fits true to size , slightly slim through the thigh, plenty of room in the crotch and slightly tapered towards the hem.
WAIST MEASUREMENT - Use a measuring tape to measure around your waistline, just above the top of the hip bones. Make sure the tape is snug but not too tight.
INSEAM LENGTH - Grab a pair of pants that fit well and lay them flat on the floor. With a measuring tape, measure the length from the crotch to the bottom of the leg/hem.
When in doubt size up, but remember our waistbands stretch for more forgiveness than your traditional work pants.
Our hoodies, shirts and tees have a generous tradesman fit and are slightly longer in length than you may be used to, preventing any unwanted exposure.
