About
Local Alaskan and Yukon art. Over 100 artist have work in our store. Haines residents Rod and Rhonda Hinson own and operate the store year round. Rod makes custom knives and also turns wood products like pens, stylus', seam rippers and cork screw/bottle stoppers. The best homemade fudge you've ever tasted and healing salves made from local plants. Plan on spending time looking around because every spot in the store is filled with great products.

Thank you for your kind comments. I am recovering from two emergency surgeries on my knee and one of the worse parts is not being able to be in the store to welcome people. Rhonda has some great ladies helping her and we hope all our visitors have an enjoyable experience in our store. Thanks again and remember to call the store if you have any questions or want to order something. Rod

An interesting shop, beautiful highest quality Seki knives - a real gem
May 2019 • Couples
We were intrigued by the beautiful knives and went in to check them out. It turned out that a substantial part of the knives in the shop were from Seki, Japan - probably the best producers in the world.The owner imports them and the manufacture by hand those beautiful handles. It is a true piece of art and really amazed us. A great and useful souvenir from this part of the world. Rhonda took the time to explain to us everything in detail. Highly recommended place to visit

Alaska Rod has a large sellection of local crafts,
Nov 2018
The owner Rod, makes hand made pens from local woods and they are awsome. His wife is very sweet and helpful. They also have hand made fudge in many flavors not available and the southern states. The city of Haines is a lovely little village, snuggled between the Chilkoot and Chilkat river inlets. There is a santuary in the village for rapitor birds. During the first weeks of November, people from many states gather for the return of the Bald Eagles, who come to feed on the spawning salmon. If you every thought of going to Alaska I can highly recommed the Bald Eagle Festival. There are plenty of places to stay in Haines and several fine Mom and Pop restaurants. And there are over 3,000 eagles to be seen and studied close up, as well as Moose and Bears. And the area is visually stunning. There is a very real chance of seeing the Northern Lights.

Cluttered Disorganized Store
Jul 2018 • Solo
There are way too many items stuffed into this store, it’s hard to even see what they have. The upstairs is nothing but cheap scratchy T-shirt’s. Don’t bother with this place, there are better gift shops in Haines.

Go eat fudge!!
Jul 2018 • Couples
Go eat the fudge and shoot the breeze with Rod, you won't regret it.
I fell in love with Haines the second I saw it, then I fell in love again as I walked through it, I just fell harder when I met Rod.
Alaska Rod's is a place that epitomizes what it means to run a friendly business with a focus on supporting local industry.
Go for a visit, but be prepared to want to stay for life

Salves and knives bring us back here
Jun 2018 • Couples
I had the good fortune to overhear Rhonda talking about people ordering their product from afar to help with aches, carpal tunnel and skin problems,so I took some home to Winnipeg.Our family loves the effects that Alaska Rod’s has on arthritis and other aches and pains. We order it from Haines every year to stock up and when we come north,a trip to the congenial atmosphere of Rod and Rhonda’s store is a must.Several family fishermen also possess their reliable, beautiful and versatile Chinook salmon knives, which can be used on Manitoba pickerel too.

We were on an Alaskan cruise in June 2014 . The ship stopped in Haines and we toured the town. We visited Alaska Rod’s and quickly saw handmade knives (all sizes and varieties) that we had to have. We have bought a total of ten for family since that day. The knives are high quality workmanship, and the owners are great.
Stop in Alaska Rod’s on your next visit to Haines.

Great service continues
Dec 2017 • Couples
We actually visited Alaska 10 years ago and I bought a folding knife for my husband as a souvenir from our trip. A couple weeks ago the clip on the knife broke and we reached out to Rod to see if we could replace the clip because my husband loves this knife, has it on him every day for the last ten years. Rod and his wife Rhonda were extremely helpful, sent a new clip out right away and even checked back to make sure it arrived and we were all set. Can’t thank them enough. Great product, great service. If you get a chance visit them and buy knowing it will be a well crafted product.

Wandered in to Alaska Rod's while in Haines, AK. Purchased Alaska Rod's Southeast Premium salve. Take it from one who lives with life long chronic pain, this is an amazing product. It is made of plants harvested in Haines. Instead of tight painful muscles when I wake up, my muscles are now relaxed and pain has dropped like I would never have dreamed. Actually have been able to do without the Cortisone shots I normally get bi-monthly. It works so well, I called and ordered 12 more this week as I don't ever want to be without it. The product was shipped and at my door in Kentucky within 4 days! Charged me exact flat rate shipping. Great product! Great people!! Can't express how thankful I am that I found Alaska Rod's Salves. It has truly upped my quality of life. Life is so much easier when the pain gets lowered!

Great little shop in Haines
Sep 2017 • Couples
Stumbled on Rod's shop because my name is Rod. Cruise was not supposed to stop here but Skagway port was closed. Rod and crew could not have been nicer. Fudge was great. The reason to visit are the knives. They are all handcrafted by Rod. The blades and handles are works of an artist. If you are in Haines visit Rod. Tell him Rod sent you.

I don't remember everyone that I talk to in our store but Rod is one I could not forget. With such a great name I remember this man. Thank you for your very kind remarks. One of the best parts of owning a store like ours is meeting really nice people from around the world. We hope to see you again someday. Maybe you will be able to stay in Hanes for a few days and experience first hand the many wonderful and beautiful things there are to do here. Thanks again Rod. Rod and Rhonda
