Letter From the CEO

  Kevin G. Pipes

Dear Friends:


I want to take a moment to welcome you to Smoky Mountain Knife Works' web site, smkw.com! When I got into this business 26 years ago, virtually no household had a computer, and the Internet as we know it did not exist. Today, millions of people have access to computers, thousands are discovering the convenience of the Internet, and you can't turn on the television without seeing an advertisement for a dot-com business.


I am proud to have built the reputation and tradition that goes along with being the "World's Largest Knife Showplace" and the "World's Largest Knife Catalog Company." We've worked hard over the years to bring you the best prices, without skimping on service. Our business practices are the best in the industry, and we are constantly working to improve upon them.

We've spent thousands of hours making sure that smkw.com provides a great selection of items and is "user friendly." I think that customers, old and new, will enjoy their shopping experience!

Again, welcome to smkw.com!

Yours truly,
Kevin G. Pipes
President & Chief Executive Officer
