Great Eastern Cutlery established in August of 2006 blends a mix of mostly skilled manufacturing processes and a few contemporary machine operations to produce high quality classically designed pocket cutlery. In just a few short years they have achieved a reputation for “Made in the U.S.A.” craftsmanship and dedication to tradition. Typically, more than 200 individual processes are required, using only the finest materials to build a knife that will look, feel, and perform like an authentic American pocket knife from the late 19th and early 20th century, the golden age of pocket cutlery.
