About us

                                                 HELLO     

 

      As a Collector of Handmade/Custom knives for many years (over 50!) and having travelled to Knife Shows both in Europe and the USA, I reached a point in my life where I needed to 'thin out' my ever growing (some might say, vast !) Knife Collection.

Having made enquiries it seemed to me that the only option for selling these beautiful objects was through Knife Dealers in the USA. This worked for a while but involved certain risks ( having had knives stolen in transit on two separate occasions ) so I decided, with some trepidation, to set up a website and try selling my knives direct to other Collectors in UK.

After a long while and some false starts, this website became established and I have now developed a repution as an person who is fair and honest.

As my Collection gradually 'shrank' ( with the odd lapse into buying more knives ! ) I, at the request of friends and fellow Collectors, decided to offer a Consignment service where they could sell knives from their own Knife Collections on this website.

Please enjoy looking at these beautiful hand crafted works of art.

Broke but happy after the Paris Knife Show.

Yours truly, Jerry Fisk (Yes, THE Jerry Fisk !) and the lovely "Bob".

     IMPORTANT NOTICE

 

  Due to the ever increasing interest in this website, I sometimes find myself struggling to answer queries & emails as promptly as I would like. Because this is still a part-time venture and I like to offer a personal, one on one service, time is sometimes an issue - so please accept my apologies in advance for any delays in replying. 

I will reply as soon as possible and, as always, strive to offer a satisfactory service.

 

Please note I am now retired and in order to keep this hobby of mine separate from my personal life, this is an INTERNET ONLY business - hence no contact phone number. While I realise this can be a source of frustration to some, I find that all/most issues can be solved by email.
