I don’t know why, but names are hard for me. I struggled for quite a while before I settled on North Mountain Knives. Those of you who are especially astute may have noticed that I’m based in Davis, WV. Which is not on or next to North Mountain, but I grew up in the shadow of North Mountain, and I used to cross it every day to go to school, or to see my best friend. So its important to me. Plus, like, EVERYTHING I thought of related to around where I live was already taken in one form or another. Anyway, there you go… that’s how a knife shop in the basement of a house in Davis came to be called NMK.
