Store Closed

Hi there! 

After 44 years Dan and Russ have closed the store and are essentially retired. Dan will have a new website selling limited edition Chris Reeve Knives, Rockstead, Randall Knives, and special projects with Medford Knife and Tool and custom makers like Kirby Lambert. Dan plans to have the new website up in March. He will take special orders on Randalls, so if you have always wanted a particular model with particular materials you can order it through Dan and it will probably only take a few months instead of 5 years through Randall.

Also starting in March, Russ will continue to sharpen knives at Jostmar Jewelers located in South Coast Plaza, on the first floor below where our store was. Jostmar is hiding a bit, but if you go down the escalator right where our store was and walk straight you will see the restroom hall on the left hand side right by the Lego Store and Puzzle Zoo. Go down the restroom hall and in the very back is Jostmar. You will be able to drop off your knives with them and Russ will come by a couple times to pick them up. Jostmar does watch and Jewelry repair, watch batteries, and engraving. They also have Luminox watches! We have known them for many years and they do excellent work. I (Andrew) bought my wife's engagement ring and our wedding rings from them as well as had them engraved. They are great people!

We sincerely would like to thank all of our customers for support for all these years. Meeting good people and talking about knives over the course of years and even decades is what we will all miss the most. My family is also forever grateful for the Segerstrom family for the support and the opportunity to have our store located in what is considered one of the top five malls in the world, and the number one in the USA. Henry Segerstrom took a chance in leasing to "Del" Delavan (Dan and Russ' father), a hardware salesman and WWII combat veteran, who had the idea for a "knife store" before any shopping malls had them. The Segerstroms have been nothing but supportive and treated us like family. They were persistent in trying to get Dan and Russ to stay open longer, but at their age it is hard to keep up at the same speed with running a business. It is time for them to have some free time to fish and travel!


Thank you!

Sincerely from the Plaza Cutlery family

Hi there,

We received part of our Medford order, which includes several model 187s and one Micro Praetorian T with a 3V blade! They will be photographed tomorrow and added most likely late Wednesday night. Along with those, we got some Kensei folders from Japan, as well as some Chris Reeve Sebenzas and Mnandis that will be photographed tomorrow and put up Wednesday/Thursday.  

Be sure to check out the Jonathan McNees Baby Bolt with a copper scale and back spacer! It also comes with a copper chain link keychain!

Hi there, 

Working on the site late. We are just about to update it so that the descriptions of the products under the thumbnails will be much more descriptive. The way we were doing it before we were only allowed so many letters. That's why everything has been so abbreviated on our site before. Hope for it to go through this week. 

In regard to product he got 4 Chris Reeve Large Sebenzas in. Two are the Night Sky "Shooting Star" graphics, one with the Night Sky with UFO, and one Morning Sun. I will shoot the pictures tomorrow and post them tomorrow night. Normally that means late like 9PM (Pacific Time) or later. I will try to post them sooner if we are not too busy in the shop. Feel free to email or call if you are interested.

I did post a good portion of the William Henry Studio jewelry pieces we got in recently. Still have a few more to do. They are gorgeous pieces! Like this one:

William Henry Shield Bracelet BR5S MT BR with Mammoth Tooth Inlaid into Sterling Silver - Large

Or this:

William Henry Bracelet BB6 DB RB with Red Dinosaur Bone, Black Onyx, and Sterling Silver - Medium

And one of my personal favorites:

William Henry Full Circle Bracelet BR7 with Sterling Silver Snake Head and Tail - Medium

For the snake bracelet you actually press down on the back of the head toward the neck of the snake and the jaw opens to unhook. Super sweet pieces! Check them out here:



I posted the Chaves low production line a bit ago. The ones that are $675 Chaves did the handles himself and a bit of customization with the color, finish, and the hardware finish as well! They are all nice pieces and the regular stone washed one goes for $475. Super solid pieces with a great feel in the hand. Check them out further here:




Until next time, all the best,

Andrew Delavan

Hi there,

The long awaited Medfords out to be delivered tomorrow. We will photograph them and post pictures as soon as possible. We do have a list of names for several of the knifes. If you want to be added to that list let us know! 

We also got more Jeremy Robertson El Fuegos in. This time in three different finishes: hand finished, stone washed, and acid washed. We will post these pictures as soon as possible (probably tomorrow evening).

Some Les George knives arrived as well. Dan was photographing those yesterday, so I will try to post them as well when I come in for the evening shift. 

Other than that we are working on getting Wusthof kitchen knives up on our website as well!
