It’s easy to make knives seem complicated – the many shapes, angles, metals, grips and techniques. But Chicago Cutlery® brand has spent the past 80-plus years making them simple – first for professional knife users, then for everyone who loves to cook.
Our story begins in 1930, fittingly in the meat markets of Chicago. The Chicago Cutlery brand began as a knife conditioning service that catered to professional butchers and packing plants. Their specialty: keeping knives sharp and finely honed for the masters of the craft. When the demand for sharp knives increased, Chicago Cutlery brand evolved into a knife manufacturing business catering to the meat and poultry industries.
