ADDITIONAL INFO: I purchased from Guttmann Cutlery while managing a cutlery store in the 1980s. Edge brand was one of the knives that was a pretty good seller for us because they were good quality German made knives. Guttmann imported and distributed the knives, but I don't think they made any knives. They imported a variety of knives from Japan and butterfly knives from the Philippines, but I think their real bread and butter was German knives, especially Puma. Kurt Guttmann of Guttmann Cutlery became the US distributor of Puma Knives in 1957. Puma changed distributors in 2009. I met a salesman from Guttmann at a knife show around 2009 and he told me they we're no longer distributing Puma Knives and would be moving in other directions. Which direction he did not specify. a quick web search shows me that currently the corporate PO Box for Guttmann Cutlery Inc and for Woodshop International Inc is this same PO Box number in Bellingham WA. Woodshop International Inc is the distributor and perhaps importer for Shop Fox woodworking equipment..
Information on Guttmann Cutlery Inc, included a website. The website was for Woodshop International Inc which is apparently the importer for Shop Fox woodworking equipment.
What I can say about Guttmann Cutlery when I purchased from them in the 1980s is that they had good quality products, especially those made in Germany. Their knives made in Japan were also good quality.
