    My name is Jeff Cothery and my company is Reid Mfg. Co. Reid is a growing supplier to OEM knifemakers and has made blades, handles and completed knives for some of the best names around. I sure would like to keep growing and to that extent welcome any contact with members here at bladeforums who would like to talk about production issues and ideas. We have pretty complete production capabilities including CNC grinding, CNC turning and CNC milling also laser and water jet cutting and heat treat service. We also do production vibratory finishing.

    Welcome aboard.

    Do you do any casting work? Specifically aluminum. If not, could I send you a G10 slab from a knife handle and have it copied in another metal?

    Thanks guys and I'm looking forward to working with you and your company.
