Thanks for stopping by!

Hello and thanks for stopping by. We are hoping that our growing web site will eventually become your your favorite stomping ground for information relating to the history of J.B.F. Champlin and the part he played in the American Cutlery Trade.

The whole site is still under construction, but go ahead, kick the tires and have a look around while we continue to work on the posts and articles.

Don't be a stranger.

Michael Losicco & Derek Smith
