Happy New Year everyone!
2010 promises to be the best one yet. We have a great crew at the KnifeCenter and great products to offer you. We hope to have a brand new web site up within months that will have features far beyond anything you have seen – at least in our industry. Everyone is hoping the world’s economy picks up and the manufacturers keep doing well so that they can offer more new products. It’s a great time to be a part of ecommerce and the cutlery and housewares industries.
Best wishes to all our wonderful customers and may all your dreams come true!
