Everything we do in life has a purpose, whether it be waking up early to take that morning run or heading to the studio to create a masterpiece. BladesWork Unlimited is no different. Our company’s mission statement is simple:
“To provide customers with a service they can trust, embracing the community, and make a one-of-a kind, enjoyable experience in order to place a custom knife in capable hands.”
BladesWork Unlimited was founded in November 2018 with the simple idea of creating a Facebook page to promote bladesmiths from around the world. After seeing how the custom community reacted, we felt there was a need in the community of bladesmiths for a service.
The response was unbelievable, and we are happy to help the bladesmiths that wanted to demonstrate their talent. We established a platform to showcase their work and promote the “little guy” for free.
Because that is what America is about, right? Supporting small business and lifting up those around you. That is at the heart of BladesWork Unlimited’s founding and principles.
