The American Musuem Of Cutlery

9 Main Street
Cattaraugus, NY 14719


Edged tools cleared our forests, fed and clothed our pioneers, won and continue to preserve our freedoms. In this museum they will forever be remembered and revered as  tools of  history.

This museum celebrates the old time definition of Cutlery which meant  "Anything that has a cutting edge on it".  Edged Tool Companies were common and widely successful. Our cutlery history, from pre Columbian through todays high art examples, have been sporadically  documented and have long been taken for granted. Step inside our museum, and this website, and learn the fascinating stories of how cutlery has been an important component of our American history. How edged tools were created, used, and how they made a real difference throughout the Americas is what this museum is about.  This museum is intended to be both a repository and an active educational institution.
