Trestle Pine Knives arose from my love for the outdoors and appreciation of Minnesota’s northern wilderness. I had them built to capture the warmth and beauty of the region, using ‘old growth’ wood for handles. In November 2019, I sold TSA Knives, LLC, opening a new webstore as Trestle Pine Knives to change my business direction. I aimed to focus on the Trestle Pine line and expand into high-quality outdoor tools like axes and hatchets. My firm philosophy remains: I won’t sell items I wouldn’t use myself.
The knives feature handles made from “old growth” wood, which not only adds warmth and beauty but also serves as a historical tribute.
