About Tekna

The original Tekna company, formed by talented designer and entrepreneur Ralph Osterhout in 1978, was broken up and sold in 1990. TEKTITE became involved in 1990-91 by making diving flashlights for the new Tekna/Ocean Edge scuba company formed by leading scuba industry executives. We were regularly asked about the availability of parts and service for Tekna items and as such we began offering limited availability of them.

In 2004-06 we purchased the original Tekna knives production tooling and inventory from companies in Europe and the U.S. In many cases, the original Tekna vendors still supply components for these items. We offer the most comprehensive parts inventory and service for Tekna Knives and flashlights available anywhere. We offer 21st Century LED upgrades for most classic Tekna flashlights, so you can keep your beloved Tekna Lites AND have modern performance and battery cost saving as well. We continue to add additional products including additional improvements to the classic Tekna designs. We manufacture the best, most rugged, U.S. made LED flashlights and we have the patents to prove it.
