Founded in 2003, River’s Edge strives to bring you the latest products the industry has to offer. Growing up, my brother and I always had a passion for knives. We thought it would be fun to create a place where knife enthusiasts and collectors would be able to learn about, handle and compare a selection of quality knives before purchasing. Our professional staff brings that same passion to knives, every day carry (EDC) items, cutlery and outdoor gear. That translates in to a wealth of product knowledge. If we sell it, we’ve likely used it! We pride ourselves on first class customer service and welcome the chance to talk to you. Stop by or call us at 614-777-8833 for information, suggestions or feedback.
Whether you’re looking for a powerful flashlight, in the market for an EDC knife, have an interest in wet shaving or need a gift we are happy to help you and we appreciate your business!

Owner / CEO
In 2002 Mike decided he was done with his current job in telecommunications and wanted to be his own boss. While he and his brother Brian were on a road trip they came up with the idea of a cutlery shop. Every place they have lived including New York and Colorado had some sort of dedicated store for knives and gear but Columbus, Ohio had nothing. It was at this point that River’s Edge Cutlery was born and doors opened in August 2003. Other than being the owner, he’s an active member of the staff spending most of his time behind the grinder sharpening knives for our customers. Mike is an avid lover of the outdoors and enjoys fishing, off-roading, fast cars and traveling. Most days if you ask him what’s in his pocket it’s a Freeman Knives button lock flipper, but he also really likes knives from L.T. Wright.
Brian (Mike’s Brother) has been with River’s Edge since the beginning. He oversees day to day operations as well as handles the online orders, website updates & some social media. When it comes to knives he is a fan of many brands, but a Spyderco ends up in his pocket most days. Other than collecting knives, he has a passion for Motorcycles, Off-Roading and all things Halloween Related.
