Grohmann Knives Limited is a family business with a big reputation. It is an Old World story that began before the second World War, when a commercial buyer from Quebec traveled once a year to a factory in Sudetenland, then a German region of Czechoslovakia, to buy pocket knives. Every year the buyer would urge Grohmann the production manager at the plant, to come to Canada , promising help to get started. Mr. Grohmann would always decline as he was happy in his own country, but after the war, the political situation grew desperate and in 1949 Rudolph Grohmann accepted the offer.
Within a year, Grohmann and his family arrived in Nova Scotia at the invitation of the provincial government-funded Pictou Cutlery, which closed after three years. Mr. Grohmann, determined to make knives, built a garage workshop & began producing & engraving folding knives designed by himself. Shortly after, Mr. Grohmann met with Mr. Deane H. Russell and together they set out to design a truly Canadian knife. After field testing with the help of hunters & trappers across the north, the D.H. Russell Belt Knife #1 was born, which along with various other designs, won many awards and recognitions worldwide. Grohmann and Russell created three more models together, the #2, #3, & #4.
Knives Limited" was formed in 1961 by the family and was run by one
of Grohmanns' daughters Berta & her husband Michael Babinec Sr. They
passed it down to their three sons Michael Jr., Roland and Norman.
Michael Jr. with daughter Michelle are now running it today.
Grohmann Knives currently employs approximately 25 people. Over the
years, Grohmann Knives has designed more award-winning Canadian
outdoor knives to add to the collection. In recent years, six lines
of kitchen knives have also been added to their production, as well
as many unique, custom made knives & machine knives.
At Grohmann Knives, making knives is as much an art as a trade. The top quality knives are produced with as many as 53 steps between starting point & finished product.
At Grohmann's it's a matter of pride & family tradition!
