Our Story


After starting in his garage in 2008, John Grimsmo became a self-taught CNC machinist. With lots of encouragement from his wife, Meg, he dedicated one day a week to making knives and documenting the process on YouTube, and he called this series "Knife Making Tuesday". It wasn't too long before John's brother Erik partnered with him. 5 years later they hired their first employee. Now this Canadian business has grown to 13 people and 1 dog, and shows no signs of stopping. John hopes to be an inspiration for anyone going into manufacturing, and encourages everyone to "just start". The company's Full-Grimsmo philosophy pushes him to pursue perfection in everything he does.
