About Town Cutler

Town Cutler makes culinary knives for people with a passion for cooking and an appreciation for enduring handmade goods.

Handcrafted in Reno, NV, our knives are made using traditional techniques and premium materials, combined with modern innovations. Founded in 2011 by former chef Galen Garretson, we understand what makes a great kitchen knife. We're passionate about knives that perform and are committed to quality in design, attention to detail, and craftsmanship.

Our cutlery is an excellent addition to any kitchen, whether you’re a professional chef or an avid home cook. Knives are more than just a tool for everyday use--they are what we use to prepare food to nourish ourselves, create memorable meals shared with loved ones, and showcase our skills, creativity, and talent. We believe your knife should bring you a lifetime of enjoyment in the kitchen.

A Note From Our Founder, Galen Garretson

I’ve always been fascinated with knives and fire. It’s what drew me to working in kitchens and later to open Town Cutler, which started in 2011 as a small cutlery shop in San Francisco. Despite years of using knives in professional kitchens and handling thousands of knives at the shop, I still hadn't come across a knife that possessed all of the qualities I dreamed of in the perfect knife. I started learning everything I could about knifemaking, and today Town Cutler is a leading American manufacturer of premium cutlery. We've spent years perfecting our process to create high-quality kitchen knives made in the USA. My culinary background still inspires everything at Town Cutler, but these days you'll find me working alongside my crew on the production floor making the best American-made culinary knives.
