Business Opportunity and Profitability
We have nearly 600 small businesses putting custom handles and reselling our blades and making a good income. I'm often asked where is the best place to resell our finished blades? I was in Alaska recently and two vendors at a local craft show had our blades on display as well as a local merchant. Our blades are well recognized world wide and highly sought after, The local crafter makes his own niche with our blades. Surprisingly Gun and Knife shows are not the #1 venue but craft show that draw a high female population is #1. The reason why is woman buy knives for men better then men buying for themselves. The next venue is hunting and fishing outfitters and taxidermy places. The next questioned I'm asked is what makes a knife more sellable? #1 is exotic handle material. Many knife makers starting off will use oak or walnut as a handle. While it's cheap it's also plain and usually undesirable. Antler, buffalo and bone are great standards to start with. In woods use a stabilized burl like California Buck eye, Amboyna, and Rosewood Burl. The other things you can do to and to value and resell ability is your name on the blade, you have a jeweler or laser engraver do that for you, mosaic pins if available, file work on the blade and an attractive sheath. Lastly every knife makers see his flaws more that anyone else sometimes the hardest sell is the maker. Find your niche and go with that. I don't like velvet Elvis painting but they sell. People look for different more than the same. Our business is a hybrid business where we make high quality blades off shore but fit and finish is here. We actually takes jobs from China and help small businesses here make money. We also have wholesale accounts available for professionals. You can call us @ 828 389 2575 if you have knife questions. Thank you for your continued business. Doug
