Check out the link above to see us featured in the “What’s New” Section of the website. They have our oyster knives featured in their advertising. Pretty cool.
Hi all!! We spent yesterday uploading knives to online sources. You can now purchase knives from this website as well as Etsy and Amazon Handmade market place. In addition to these we have had the honor of being invited to sell at the very cool Anytown USA online sales platform. Anytown USA was started by a very cool lady who retired from being CEO of several international corporations to start her own on line shopping service which only sells stuff made in the USA. Anytown does a lot of great work to drive traffic to their site so we hope for big things there. We have also figured out options of wood handles we will offer which is pretty cool.
One of the coolest bits of news we have received is that we have been accepted to Blade Atlanta the biggest knife show in the world!!! It is terrifying but we will be bringing Cape Cod and what we do to a national and global audience. It is pretty nuts!! Tom is making a few special show knives but we will be focusing on just doing what we do by making handmade knives for the people. We are making beautiful tools.
Well, we spent the month of January on my dad’s Farm in Mississippi. We enjoyed a rainy but mostly 50 to 60 degree month while Cape Cod enjoyed the teens and twenties. It allowed us to get a lot of work done and we ended up with a new dog Mr Jack Mittens who just showed up on the farm the first week and never left us. So two dogs, two large men and the full knife shop axles and differential for the company Suburban and all our supplies and clothing for a month squeezed into a Kia Soul and just spent 24 hours on the road to get back here.
This week we plan a cleaning and reset on our shop. Fixing our work truck with the aforementioned axles and diff. Get our knives nicely photographed and listed on line. Once listed I will post links and info about our new partner in online sales. We think it will be great!
Ok, one more chance to get a Cape Cod Cutlery product before Christmas. We will be at Cape Cod Beer Merry Market on Saturday form 11-4 our inventory is limited but we have a couple of oyster knives and a handful of our 6 inch chefs and a few other random knives. Come on down and help us blow out last years inventory so we can start with a clean slate in 2019!!
We would love to keep taking them but we can not. We thank you all for making this our best year yet and we hope to make 2019 even better. The shop is getting cold though and we are at the end of our workable season out there. We should have all the special orders finished and shipped out by the end of next week then we will be looking forward to a much needed break. We have been straight out 8 days a week since May and as much as we love it, we are tired. We look forward to getting out there again starting in February when we start pounding the steel and the pavement again. Have a great holidays! See you next year!
We are thankful for all the wonderful people who have been supportive of us and bought knives and let us sharpen their knives and tools this year. Our year is winding down. We have a few special order slots left before Christmas. We will be at Wilmington at the Shriner’s Convention Center for Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and No Gimmick Sunday. Dec 1st and 2nd we will be in Hyannis at Love Local Fest and Dec 7th and 8th at the Big E Fair Grounds in Springfield Ma for our last gun show of the year. Then we are on working vacation till February when we might be seen locally at some Cape Cod Beer Winter Markets.
From our family to yours, we wish you a wonderful holiday season and we look forward to seeing you and continuing to serve you next year and for many years to come.
Fred and Tom
Bundle up and join us this Saturday for the last Provincetown Farmers Market of the Season!
