Knives and Cutlery
Knife and cutlery companies may sell products in a physical store setting or online. Within a store or warehouse, they may boast a large product line featuring knives of all kinds, from cooking and pocket knives to utility and hunting knives. Some are geared toward the home chef and offer kitchen products such as wood chopping blocks, plastic cutting boards, and steak knife sets. Others are geared toward the hunter, camper, or other outdoorsman, offering equipment and knives with sturdy steel blades and handles meant for gutting and filleting fish or deer, for example. Many manufacturers offer cheap bulk discounts for large quantities. This is ideal for restaurants or retailers who need to purchase bulk amounts at one time.
Online offerings may include reviews, ratings, online ordering, account management, and free shipping. Many websites allow customers to shop by price, brand, or most popular items. Most feature full-color catalogs of their knives and cutlery, such as daggers, swords, throwing knives, folding knives, and sharpening stones.
Whether for self defense, martial arts, cooking, or sport, dealers should stand behind their products 100 percent, offering warranties and proof of purchase guarantees. Sales associates in the store can guide customers to the best knives and cutlery for them, no matter the type of handle, such as plastic, or sharp steel blade they may need.
Professionals in this industry should be fully knowledgeable about knives and cutlery according to their own specialties. Kitchen cutlery sets backed by professional chefs may carry more clout than brands that are not. Likewise, hunting knives promoted by actual hunters and outdoorsmen will have more appeal than those that are not.
From simple pocket knives to swords, bulk knife companies have customers covered.
