About Safe & Knife Co.

Family Owned & Operated by Gun Safe Experts

Who We Are

Safe & Knife Co. is your trusted, family-run safe and vault provider. With three locations across MN, we sell high-quality fire and gun safes made with all-American steel.

Safe & Knife Co. is owned by John Borchardt, an avid sportsman and strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment. With over 30 years of industry experience, John’s profound belief in the superiority of American-made materials is reflected in every product we offer.

John, together with his son Jack (manager of South Metro Safe & Vault) represent the heart and soul of our company. Both are seasoned safe experts, with Jack having grown up in the business, absorbing knowledge and passion for security from a young age. Beyond their expertise, John and Jack are enthusiasts of the great outdoors, cherishing time spent hunting, fishing, and being with family.

Who We Serve

We proudly serve clients looking to protect themselves, their families, and their property. From individual homeowners seeking to protect their valuables and firearms, to businesses in need of reliable security solutions, we provide friendly, knowledgeable customer service, quick-and-easy delivery, and the highest-quality safes around.

We operate three subsidiaries in Rogers, Brainerd, and Lakeville run by experienced gun safe experts in their own right.

Where We’ve Been

Safe & Knife Co. was founded in 1972 as a small gun safe wholesaler in the 5-state area. Our first retail store opened in Robbinsdale, MN, in 1984, marking our start in providing top-notch safes and security solutions to locals.

Over the years, we've expanded our footprint, moving our headquarters through Crystal and Brooklyn Park, and finally settling in Rogers in 2005. Today, we operate out of Rogers, Brainerd, and Lakeville MN. With over 250 safes in stock at all times, we're proud to offer immediate pickup or professional home delivery.

Over our 50+ year history, Safe & Knife Co. has grown into one of the largest safe providers in America. Our commitment to delivering exceptional safes and customer service has cemented our reputation as a first choice for safes and vaults in Minnesota and beyond.

A Word From John Borchardt

“Our exceptional customer service is why we are the premier safe and vault choice in Minnesota and one of the largest safe companies in the nation! We've continued to grow because our customers refer family and friends to us.
