About Us

The Cutting Edge® and cuttingedge.com™ was created for the knife collector who is looking for that special knife, be it handmade or antique, and for the knife user who is looking for a knife that he cannot find through normal channels. For over 45 years, The Cutting Edge® and cuttingedge.com™ have been the largest and most visible aftermarket for knives of all kinds. From 1968 until the 1990s, A. G. Russell's List of Knives for Immediate Delivery (became The Cutting Edge® in 1990) was the ONLY place an individual could sell his knife collection without traveling to knife shows. The printed catalogs (The Cutting Edge®) offered the largest selection of pre-owned knives any place in the world.

In 2000 we launched cuttingedge.com/ but spent most of our time on the printed book because a large percentage of the owners and buyers were not actively using the Internet. We have just rebuilt the website. You will find that it is much more user friendly. It has also been built for easy use with your tablet or smart phone. Our plans are to make it as strong a sales tool as the printed book has been. Step-by-step, we are developing a system that will work more efficiently for you the customer and much more efficiently for us in presenting your knives and processing your orders. Our goal is to make the new cuttingedge.com site as functional and worthwhile as the A. G. Russell Knives™ site.

We will continue to grow both cuttingedge.com/ and The Cutting Edge®.  Please use the Contact Us feature with any functionality issues you have with our website.  We think you will like the changes.

All the best,

A. G. and Goldie Russell
