A fusion of artistry and functionality: Our knives and kitchen tools are created for expert chefs and home culinary enthusiasts alike
Established in Massachusetts in 1837, Lamson is proud to be the oldest cutlery manufacturer in the United States. Our name is synonymous with American artistry and carries with it a distinguished history—in 1869 newly-elected US President Ulysses S. Grant was presented a 62-piece Lamson dinner set at the White House. Pieces of this extraordinary gift remain in the nation’s capital on display at the Smithsonian Institution.
Today, our talented artisans still handcraft each piece in western Massachusetts—an extensive selection of elegantly functional products, including laser-cut and forged cutlery, kitchen tools and trade tools.
Over the years we’ve survived major world events, difficult financial times, and even a natural disaster that forced us to relocate from our original factory. Through it all, our spirit and commitment to American craftsmanship has not diminished. On the contrary, these experiences have inspired a renewed celebration of our heritage – the superior quality, service, and passion for excellence that would make our founders proud.
With designs as diverse as the professional and household needs we supply, Lamson products are at once high-performing and stylish, traditional and innovative. As we move toward a third century in a business we’ve long exemplified, our mission remains steadfast: to aim for nothing short of American-made perfection.

Instructions for safely preparing your knives for shipping:
- Please carefully wrap clean Lamson knives in bubble wrap and/or several layers of newspaper and/or cardboard sleeves.
- Next, securely and snugly pack contents into a shipping box including packing paper, wrap, packaging sleeves, and/or shipping peanuts, to further help secure items and to help prevent them from puncturing the box they are enclosed in. It is important to pay extra special attention to the tips of knives so that they are packaged with enough care to ensure their safety, as well as, the safety for package handlers.
