The Lamson knives and kitchen tools blend artistry and functionality to create professional-quality products that are perfect for cooking newbies and seasoned chefs. You can purchase knifes individually and in complete sets with knife blocks. Some of the knife types include:

  • Bread knives
  • Carving and slicing knives
  • Paring knives
  • Chef knives
  • Fish, filet and boning knives
  • Santoku knives
  • Utility knives
  • Steak knives
  • ULUs, choppers and cleavers

They also provide us with kitchen tools like spatulas, turners, spreaders, servers, scrapers, spoons and BBQ tools. In 1869 Lamson, was called Lamson & Goodnow, presented newly elected US President Ulysses Grant a 62-piece dinner set at The White House (on display now at the Smithsonian Institution), which essentially gives this cutlery a presidential seal of approval. 

Over the years, Lamson Cutlery has survived major world events, difficult financial times, and even a natural disaster that forced them to relocate from their original factory in the New England village of Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts to a new facility in Westfield, Mass. Through it all, their spirit and commitment to American craftsmanship has not diminished.

Lamson inspires a renewed celebration of their heritage – the superior quality, service, and passion for excellence that would make the Lamson founders proud. For nearly two centuries, the name Lamson has been synonymous with the finest handcrafted cutlery available.

Today the Lamson talented artisans still handcraft each piece in western Massachusetts. They present an extensive selection of elegantly functional products, including laser-cut and forged cutlery, kitchen tools and trade tools that are as diverse as the household needs they supply!

Lamson products are high-performing and stylish, traditional and innovative! As Lamson moves into their third century as a business, their mission remains steadfast: to aim for nothing short of American-made perfection.
