    Knife stores in New Orleans


    ADVERTISEMENT
    Hay all, I'm traveling to New Orleans this week and was wondering if there are any good knife stores in the downtown area. I'll be at a convention and my transportation will be limited. Thanks in advance. chieftd

    Short answer is no.

    There is a Remington store in the River Walk Mall that has a few Benchmades and Spydercos at full retail. Just outside the city in Metairie there is an excellent knife store called Alpine Jewelry. Great selection and good prices for a retail store. There is no easy public transportation to there. At least two or more bus connections.

    I live in the New Orleans metro area and have for 13.4 years.
    I am disappointed to report that I have not yet discovered anything resembling a good knife store... unless you'd consider Williams Sonoma or Dillard's selection of Henckels kitchen knives of interest.

    Best place I can suggest for strictly factory stuff, like BM, Spyderco, Kershaw, SOG, that ilk: Alpine Clocks, 1901 Veterans Blvd in Metairie (suburb), (504) 833-8332. That's right... a clock store that carries probably 200 different factory/production knives... dat's all we gots, brah!

    (Alpine Clocks/Jewelry...same place)

    I own about 80 knives, 60+ of which are custom, so that's a glimpse of what my slant on what is a "good" knife.

    If you discover a good store in my back yard, by all means, please give me the clue!

    Hey guys, Give Al Tinney at American Arms in Chalmette a look, he might surprise you.

    Thanks everyone for the replies. I guess I'll just have to gamble and drink instead of looking at knives. Damn! Anyway, I'll be in "Nawlins" come Saturday.
