About Us

Not so long ago, Seattle's knife selection just didn't cut it. That all changed in 1978, when Seattle Cutlery was founded with the mission to bring some of the world's finest cutlery to the homes and restaurants of the Emerald City. While our location and ownership haven't changed, our clientele has expanded beyond the Pacific Northwest to include chefs and knife lovers the world over. Over 45 years of experience have taught us a thing or two about knives—that's why at Seattle Cutlery, you can be sure that our curated selection offers the very best blades for every budget and purpose.

See for yourself!

Our shop is located a few doors down from the original Starbucks in the 1922 Soames Building at Downtown Seattle's historic Pike Place Market. Home to the region's farmers, craftspeople, and musicians since 1907, the market attracts over 10 million visitors annually. Next time you're here, have a look around and take your favorite knives for a test drive at our Chop & Dice Station.
