Press Release




- The Kershaw Store proudly announce s "Pete Kershaw Talks Knives" only at The Kershaw Store. Yes this is the Pete Kershaw who started it all as the founder of Kershaw Knives back in 1974 with an idea for a product that turned out to be one of the world’s most respected brands in first quality hunting, fishing, camping, and general purpose working knives….KERSHAW KNIVES. Nearly twenty five years later in 1998, he retired as President of the company and moved to a ranch near Sisters, Oregon. Since then he has kept up his interest in what’s going on in the knife industry, but as he says "thankfully I’m totally retired.


From Pete - "It’s been most pleasing to see that my successor, Kai USA, has advanced the company with an outstanding range of terrific new products manufactured in their new state of the art factory in Tualatin, Oregon. Quality without compromise was a cornerstone of Kershaw Knives from the beginning and now I can objectively state that is still the case. I am also extremely pleased that a company such as The Kershaw Store represents the brand in the upmost professionalism and maintains the highest standards in customer service that is second to none, and that most fail in comparison.


Each month The Kershaw Store sends out a newsletter promoting new models, specials, etc. Each newsletter will now introduce a new article from me discussing various topics related to the knife industry. I have had no financial or advisory involvement since 2,000 with either Kershaw Knives or Kai USA, and therefore will comment on their products with the same candor as I would with any other company. So each month check back at The Kershaw Store, look for the latest stories, reviews, and general good stuff about knives. "


Needless to say we are thrilled to have Pete writing short stories for everyones enjoyment each month. The stories will be announce in our newsletter at the beginning of each month. So to celebrate we are holding a give away. We just received the latest model from Zero Tolerance which is the 0700 Tanto Folder. This is one impressive knife and is in high demand. We are giving away one ZT 0700 Tanto folder to the one person who chooses closest to our secret number between 1-10,000. So please check out the site and the new "Pete Kershaw Talks Knives" section which already has two short stories, which are "Kids & Knives and the "The Pete Kershaw Story". The winner will be announced on Saturday November 20th. Thank You!


Sincerely,
Chip Pittman

I'll try 7777 as my guess.

I'm looking forward to the newsletter. Is it going to be available on a "subscription basis" where it gets emailed to us with a link to the KershawStore web site?

It's a lot easier that way instead of remembering to regularly visit the site.

So the contest didn't end Saturday as previously specified?
It's been extended so the snoozers can have a second chance?
Hasn't the forum been open 24/7(not counting temporary outages)since giveaway was announced?

Hope Smashcar doesn't find out about this. They might start adding 50 more laps onto race at lap 499 unannounced.

Just kidding around, Chip.
Sure we can hang on somehow til the 26th...or 31st...or Christmas be nice time to get it.

I remember buying my first decent pocket knife just before checking into Fort Ord (Monterey, Ca) in 1988 for my assignment.....a Kershaw with a rubberized case which was important as to not have the knife slip out of my pocket while crawling or doing other crazy things we were required to do in the ARMY. That knife lasted thru Panama "Just Cause" and thru alot of other abuse as well. Still have it, and always will (actually purchased another just like it too).... Thanks for a great product! I will pick my number of 7045. no meaning......just a number...
Thanks! JD

Chip -

I have the Kershaw Crown and love it. Even though made in China, it is
a quality knife. I used a piece of coarse sand paper to roughen up the
Micarta - it was a bit to slick to grip really well. It's become my EDC
along with my SAK Deluxe Tinker in a belt pouch. I pretty much always
carry two knives; my tool chest (SAK) and my main working knife, the
Kershaw Crown.

As I said, I really like my Kershaw Crown. Any chance of a design
like it as an assisted opener. I especially like the barlow type
bolster for strength. A Crown AO would be awesome.
