About Us



RiverBlade Knife & Fly is Spartanburg’s only combination Fly Shop and Knife store. Locallly owned and operated by Brandon Barber and Mark Mahaffey: two guys combining their passions and hobbies of fly fishing and knife collecting under one roof. Brandon has been fly-fishing for 30 years, and got his start in the fly-fishing business as a guide because of his desire to teach others how to enjoy the sport. Being involved in the guide business for several years, he now wants to use RiverBlade Knife & Fly to be the place where fly anglers can get the product to learn. Brandon will be glad to teach fly-casting, fly tying, or even take you out on the lake or river to chase after some fish. RiverBlade Knife & Fly carries products from Ross Reels, St. Croix, Redington, Rio, Temple Fork Outfitters, Allen Fly Fishing, Scientific Anglers, and others. They will also be glad to special order any product you may need.

Mark has been a knife collector his entire life, following in the footsteps of his dad. Mark has spent years collecting and trading knives, attending collectors show events, touring facilities like the Case Manufacturing Facility in Bradford PA, and well, just doing knife things. He loves to talk to other knife enthusiasts, and track down hard to find knives for people looking for that knife to complete a set or collection. Mark would love for you to stop by and see our fine selection of knives at great low prices, show him your favorite knives, or find a buyer for some knives you want to sell. Let RiverBlade Knife and Fly be your hometown option for your fly-fishing and cutlery needs.
