Spacious show room. Excellent displays of their products. We had our Cutco knives sharpened and they were courteous and efficient.

Cutco is the absolute best kitchen product of its type. If you don’t own some of them, immediately find a way to buy them.

I bought my first Ka-Bar hunting knife in 1953 and it is still in good condition. Have been using Cutco utensils and knives since 1962. They honor their lifetime warranty!

All of the knives are made in Olean, NY. They are not cheap, but unconditionally guaranteed for life. We bought our large set of knives, here 10 years ago, and have been back a number of times. You don't have to, but we like to...More

Saw this place as I was driving by and decided to stop. I walked in and it seemed all they were interested in we're selling knives. Nothing about the history or about the shop in general. Pretty much just a place to go buy kitchen...More

These are great knives and you pay for them. My wife bought her set before we were married (almost 47 years ago) from a door-to-door salesman (i.e. college student). As life sometimes does I ended up working in Olean, NY where Cutco is located. We...More

I went into the Visitors Center just to look. Two ladies were in attendance and showed me what knifes I was interested in. Came away with two and at very reasonable price. Would highly recommend it for anyone interested in quality knifes,
