“A young company with years of knife making experience”

Thank you for viewing our web site;

The KnifeSource LLC is a young company (est. 1999) with years of knife making experience. For me it has been a dream come true. My 3 sons Jeff, Todd & Doug and my wife Linda work for the company and I must say our FAMILY BUSINESS has proven to be a success. All 3 sons are college educated and have worked several years in the tool steel & plastic industries before we established The Knifesource.

I started in the knife industry in 1964 with USM Corp, a chipper knife producer. Then in 1974, in partners with Norval Morey (deceased) founder of Morbark Ind., founded Michigan Knife Company in Big Rapids Michigan. In 1989 we sold the company to Simonds Industries and is now their only knife factory which I am proud that I built to a formidable size before its sale. In 1999 after successfully building the worlds largest knife manufacturer (International Knife & Saw Inc.) to its highest sales and profitability level resigned to start The KnifeSource for my 3 sons.

The KnifeSource was founded on a few very basic principles, the customer is king and the customer signs our paychecks. We are here to serve our customers and bring back the “easy to do business with spirit” that seems to be lost in today’s larger venture capital owned competitors. The KnifeSource is unique in that we have no outside salesmen and only sell through distribution and OEM accounts. Our overhead is low and products are competitive. The KnifeSource is located in Fountain Inn, SC (6 miles south of Greenville, SC off Rt. 385, exit 24.) We are on 10 acres of industrial land and built a new factory to house our manufacturing. The KnifeSource has grown substantially to a level we are all proud of. This could not have happened without our loyal customers and suppliers, all of which enjoy working with a “FAMILY BUSINESS” that produces a quality product. We strive to be a company that treats its customers with great respect.

Thanks again for viewing out web site. I hope you will become a valued customer in the near future.
