Letter from Joe & Kristi Culpepper
Dear Valued Customer,
First, we would like to personally thank you for considering J. Culpepper & Co., Inc. for your natural material needs. We know that you have other choices in the marketplace for handle materials or inlays. We hope that our reputation for quality and service is rewarded with your business. For those of you, who haven’t previously done business with us before, WELCOME!
Our skilled staff has an average of 10 years of experience in this business. We’ve been blessed to have had the opportunity to meet so many talented and hard working people. If you happen to be one of those folks, pat yourself on the back and accept our thanks and gratitude
This catalog covers many of our product offerings. However, it should be noted, that there are over 2,000 different products and variations on our website that change daily. So no catalog can ever be as comprehensive as our websites, knifehandles.com, stingrayproducts.com and tomway.com.
Since our last catalog, we have branched out and have recently opened a company store, Old School Knife Works. It houses a large selection of handle materials and many different varieties of American Made cutlery. We have also seen continued patronage for our Amber Stag Enhancement process which you can read more about in the following pages. Our secure source of raw Stag material has kept us very busy cutting Stag slabs, sticks and carvers. But with the continued embargo from India and virtually no other vendors competing with our sales for Stag, demand will continue to exceed supply. We have also continued to pioneer the cutting and yield from raw shell and though you won’t notice a difference in your pearl purchases, trust me, those innovations are saving you money.
We hope that this past year has been good to all of you and that your passion for your craft is as strong as ever. On behalf of the entire staff here at J. Culpepper and Co., Inc. we hope to hear from you soon or see you along the show trail. We’ll be at the Las Vegas Classic, Arkansas Custom Knife Show, ECCKS in NY, Blade Show, Parkers Show, Guild Show, NY Custom Knife Show, and Milan Italy.
We look forward to hearing from you and welcome your feedback. Thank you again for your continued business.
Joe & Kristi Culpepper
