History

Carvel Hall was founded in 1895 by Charles D. Briddell in Chrisfield, MD with humble beginnings as a blacksmith shop that manufacturied carts and farm equipment. In addition, they also made crab and oyster harvesting tools for local watermen and boatmen on Chesapeake Bay.

During World War II, Briddell made bolos for the USMC, as well as a variety of kitchen knives, and anti-tank bazooka shells during World War.

In 1946, an employee named Paul Culver designed and hand carved a letter opener as a Christmas gift to Charles Briddell. With Culvers help, the design was transformed into the world famous Carvel Hall steak knife. The knives were an instant hit, grossing $1 million in sales for the company within four weeks of its unveiling in 1951. The Carvel Hall line was named after a famous luxury hotel in Annapolis MD. Soon the company changed its name to Carvel Hall.

The blade is fully forged from the high quality carbon  steel. This steel gives superior edge retention, strength, and wear resistance. The handles are made from wWood   , a super tough, rigid and wear resistant product.
