The Quick Tale of Chaos: CHAOS had been something kicking around in the head of its founder, Ari Knazan, for two decades. In 2019, he made it happen.
The Saga: CHAOS is an homage to the unpredictable world we live in. It also is a nod to the Norse people (Vikings) who thrived in those environments. We have always had a love for those who were able to endure despite the challenges they faced. One such warrior was our friend Dane. He inadvertently was the catalyst for Chaos over a decade ago. Dane was a skald (poet), Úlfhéðnar (warrior) and chieftain in moderns times. He was a scholar, blacksmith and friend to many. He loved everything cool in the world and became a kindred spirit with us. He Said:
"There are no mistakes, only changes in design. Life is for the living and none of us are getting out of this alive. How are we going to move forward? There is this...I will cloak myself in armor of friendship; clutch a shield of wisdom and heft an ax of hope. And with my eyes open and my head up; strike out -ever grateful, ever grateful in the only direction I have left ... forward."
Dane entered Valhalla on Oct 30 2017 after a valiant fight with cancer. Dane always encouraged us to move forward and seek challenges.
The Symbol: the eight pointed arrow is also called the Arms of Chaos, the Arrows of Chaos, the Chaos Star, the Chaos Cross, the Chaosphere (when depicted as a three-dimensional sphere), or the Symbol of Eight. It has its roots in the Melnibone Mythos and is attributed to the God of Chaos, Arioch.The symbol represents the ever changing environment of the universe and that change can come from any direction at any time.
Our Rings: Our first line of rings is a homage to the Martial Art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, which is characterized as a practical and extremely challenging combat system and sport.We realized that the uniqueness of our choices should be represented through our expression. Our Silicon Rings are highly durable and are great for activities where metal rings may be a hindrance or inadvisable.
Our Watches: Stay tuned for our tactical watches "THE VANGUARD", "The Archon" and " The Úlfhéðnar" which we know you'll dig. Perfect for those working in harsh demanding environments who want a watch that can stand up the CHAOS we all encounter.
Our WEB Division: It may seem an odd pairing having a web and logo design business attached to a "product website". But it isn't! We love creativity and offer very competitive prices and work extremely quickly in order to bring your vision to life!
Our TEE Shirts: We have always loved the 80s and have fond memories growing up in that awesome time. So, we design new cutting edge mash up shirts that pay homage to that wicked decade.
Be Comfortable in Chaos

Supporter of those who don't give up.
At CHAOS, we understand that sh*t happens and that the world is a chaotic place. Our rings are made of extremely durable and dense APX silicone material. That means that they are designed to stand up to the rigours of not only everyday life, but bold adventures and abuse. Whether it be grappling, lifting weights, driving cars or shooting guns, our rings will hold up great.
The rank bar on version 1.0 rings will fade with time, just like a real belt but don't worry because it shows the rest of the world that you actually take risks and DO things. The version 2.0 rings does not have rank bars-they have coloured filled letters instead. Should a ring snap within the first 30 days (we've never seen it happen BUT we want to show you we stand behind our customers), we will replace the ring with no cost to you.* Just email us and we will take care of you.

Work hard. Play harder.
