Welcome Home...THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY

KNIFE WORLD’s ownership has been transferred UPDATED 9/11/15

How many times have we, as iKC'ers referred to an article published by Knife World to assist in our quest for knowledge about our latest acquisition or the manufacture we have become enthusiastic about?  For me??  More times than I can count.  I have utilized the information available out there from any publication I can find but personally, I have learned more about the industry from this one publication than from any other.  It was the first knife magazine I subscribed to and I look forward to it every month. 

With more than 38 years of knife knowledge shared and 455 monthly editions behind them, Knife World makes a well earned change.  Since the very beginning, this publication has been assembled by a single full-time editor and a small part-time staff of hardworking employees who are good at what they do.

It is with a joyous heart that iKnifeCollector shares the news that Mark Zalesky is now the owner of this industry respected magazine.  

As they always have, Knife World will be looking to it's current and future customers for the support we, as knife enthusiasts have always offered.  That’s support in the form of subscriptions, book purchases, and advertising – the kind of support that keeps the bills paid.

Join me in congratulating Mark and wishing him the best as he makes this move to ownership, after all he is a member and supporter for us also, and will see our information first hand.

And here is our sneak peek at July !!

CHECK OUT THE NEWEST FORMAT AND NAME.  MARK IS STILL DEDICATED TO COVERING THE WORLD OF KNIVES, NOW HE HAS A COLOR FORMAT FOR YOU!

I LIKE IT!  and proud to be a part of it!  Mark and Kim both do a fantastic job, and the new Knife Magazine is going to be an amazing publication.  Thanks for posting this Jan!

Love the new logo Mark - nice touch!  Really well done!

ooops guys I jumped the gun on this one and no one else knows.  Let's be fair to Mark and not share the news yet?  Thanks :)

Wow, this sound great....

I think it will be found on magazine racks now. That's definitely a good thing.

Absolutely not Michael, and there are several reasons why we're not able to do that. Suffice it to say that if we tried to get on newsstands with a publication that remained true to the Knife World mission of serving dedicated knife enthusiasts, it would never work. By remaining subscription only we can offer content that the other publications cannot, present it in a way they cannot, and still do it at a great price.

I'm happy to let Blade and KI represent the knife community on newsstands, and the more people they can bring into our world, the better. Once folks really become interested in knives, they become potential subscribers for us.

I'm not going to spill all the beans yet, but I will be at the ICCE Show in Kansas City this coming weekend with a table for KNIFE Magazine. Jan and I have talked about doing a chat here at iKC soon -- maybe we could do a formal announcement here?
