WE WERE LUCKY ENOUGH TO PURCHASE A LARGE PORTION OF RHETT STIDHAM'S COLLECTION FROM AN ESTATE SALE.

MR. STIDHAMIS WELL KNOWN IN THE KNIFE COLLECTING WORLD AND WAS A LONG TIME COLLECTOR, SPECIALIZING IN SELLING AND TRADING ANTIQUE POCKETKNIVES AS WELL AS CUSTOM KNIVES AND ONE OF A KIND PIECES. IN 1972 RHETT AUTHORED A VERY INFORMATIVE BOOK ENTITLED "NAPANOCH- A WHITE MAN’S KNIFE WITH A RED MAN’S NAME" . HIS HISTORY OF THE NAPANOCH KNIFE COMPANY IS CONSIDERED THE DEFINITIVE WORK ON THE NAPANOCH BRAND WHICH BECAME THE GENESIS OF WINCHESTER KNIVES.

IN 1989 HE FOUNDED THE RANDALL KNIFE SOCIETY WHICH COUNTED OVER 3,000 MEMBERS WORLD WIDE. THE RKS NEWSLETTER HAS PROVIDED A WEALTH OF INFORMATION ON RANDALL MADE KNIVES THAT BENEFIT BOTH THE NOVICE AND THE EXPERT.

RHETT RAN A SUCCESSFUL KNIFE AND ANTIQUE BUSINESS. HIS BRICK AND MORTAR STORE, MEADOW'S EDGE, WAS LOCATED WITHIN SIGHT OF THE BLUE RIDGE PARKWAY IN MEADOWS OF DAN, VIRGINIA. SADLY, RHETT PASSED AWAY ON APRIL 23, 2011.

WE ARE NOW PUTTING THE HIGH QUALITY ITEMS FROM HIS ESTATE UP FOR SALE. WE FEEL THAT RHETT WOULD HAVE WANTED OTHERS TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO ENJOY THIS ELITE COLLECTION.
