Helpful Staff of KnifeCenter
Welcome to our site. I began working with and selling knives in 1984 and developed the first web site selling cutlery and shaving products in 1995. As a company and as an individual, our loyalty is to you, our customer, and we do everything we can to make your buying experience as easy and pleasurable as possible. In 2014 we moved into a large facility in central Virginia allowing us to expand our selection of fine products and our service. My background includes decades of experience as an entrepreneur, handcraft artistisan, exploration geologist and land surveyor as well as a father and grandfather. For the last 20 years, we have been pioneers in the ecommerce industry we are all very proud of the result. The best part of the job is hearing from our satisfied customers and being able to work with the wonderful people listed below!

Jason has worked in the knife business since he was 17. He's worked for Mom+Pop retailers, chain retailers, distributors throughout his college years, and is now quite happy to be here at the KnifeCenter. Jason received his Masters degree from Auburn and likes to annoy the office with bad jokes and bad Texas country music.
The lady in charge of the place, Cindy brings grace, charm and humor and usually a car full of lunch goodies for the troops. Someone has to do the administrative and grunt work of running a company and she does it with style. After hours she is running her home!

Tom is the "man behind the curtain" at the KnifeCenter. Actually a product specialist, he now spends his days adding new products as well as taking care of every special case customer service issue. At night he is a rapper.

The very heart of the business, Patty is the go-to person in customer service. With a heart of gold and a strong whip, she gets it done every day. At night she tries to recover from the day.

There's only one Stella in the world that can do what she does: supervise our troops in the warehouse and keep them all smiling at the same time.

Daily Carry: Ontario RAT Model 1 with Pink Nylon Handles

Max is in charge of all buildings and grounds on our 3 acre campus. Plus, along with Andre, he is part of the killer team of order pickers that know every inch of shelf space at the Knifecenter.

One of our original warehouse people, Andre comes to us with an extensive technical background as well. His role will be evolving through the years and he's good at whatever he does. After hours he's a gamer.

Nick is another product specialist and came to us after getting his engineering degree from Maryland University. He brings a wealth of talent as the consummate “knife guy” and keeps everyone at the KnifeCenter up to date on all the products. He knows a lot about the knives because he owns at least one of every great knife we sell! After hours he is playing broom ball, frisbee and planning his wedding.
