Started in 2005, Don and Andy Hess are making their own line of knives after long careers of making knives for others. Yes, these hand-made gems have more than a passing resemblence to Marbles Knives when Marbles were made in Gladstone, MI. Unfortunately, as Marbles collectors know, Marbles manufacturing in Gladstone, Michigan, closed their doors years ago. The knives are an outstanding value and made by some very fine gentlemen.
Michigan Residents: We will pay your MI Sales Tax on Hess knives.
Note: These knives have Convex grinds and while most warnings regarding "sharpness" are BS, please be extra careful when handling a Hess knife. We do not recommend these for beginners, kids, etc.
