Our Story

Blackfire, an Outdoor Gear Brand of Klein Tools

Blackfire is an outdoor gear brand consisting of products created by a group of product development wizards at Klein Tools. This specialized team has spent as much time in the great outdoors as they do on the jobsite to develop the addiction for outdoor-related products and tools. Concerned with the lack of quality with current outdoor products on the market, our team looked toward the strengths of their own jobsite accessories and brought them along for the journey. We quickly realized the advantages of our durable and reliable gear, as we are very tough when it comes to using them in the outdoor elements. We knew the products could withstand the rigors of the jobsite, but recognized that they needed to be adapted to the needs of the outdoorsmen vs the tradesmen. Thus, one dark night, while sitting around the campfire, the idea behind the brand was created. That idea was the essence of the Blackfire product line!

Our Mission:

To provide a sustainable eco-system of rechargeable products and tools by eliminating the need for disposable batteries, the use of harmful carbon emissions, and ensuring lasting durability in the outdoors.

Our Secret Sauce:

Blackfire is affiliated with and harnesses the product development expertise of Klein Tools. Klein Tools is an iconic brand with over 163 years of experience in hand tools and jobsite accessories, still manufacturing tools and equipment in the USA today! You can be assured that Blackfire stands behind every product as it is rigorously tested and made with the highest standards and at the same level as our parent company.
