About Us

We are a family owned and operated business located in Brisco BC (close to Radium Hot Springs).   

Our Mission is to ....

Provide the highest quality products, services and information to our customers and show them we are as passionate about knife making as they are.

Who we are ...

Curtis Nicholls, President and CEO, is a long time knife maker of hunting, pocket and chef knives.  He worked in sawmill quality control developing expertise he has used to evaluate knife making products. Prior to that he had several years of experience in the construction industry where he became proficient in electrical, plumbing, framing, drywall, roofing, and welding. When he is not running the company or making knives he enjoys hunting, fishing, dog training, outdoor activities and small project fabricating.

He is focused on customer service and is always willing to “go the extra mile”.

 

Frances Lasser, Operations Manager, is Curtis’ sister-in-law.  She comes to Canadian Knifemaker after running a successful consulting business in health care.  She grew up helping her Dad repair anything from toasters to truck engines. She appreciates the creativity of the knifemaker in designing, material choice and making beautiful custom knives.  In her spare time she enjoys cooking (with custom knives), ocean kayaking, running, and organic garlic farming.

She is focused on creating the best experience for our customers. 

 

Freddie, Quality Control Goat, is only two years old but has a good nose for quality. That is when he is not fainting.... yes he is a fainting goat.  Whenever something frightens him he falls over and remains unconscious for several seconds. So far that has not happened with any new product.  

He is focused on checking our products ... when he is not eating or fainting!
