The Knife Factory Red Hill Cutlery's Cutlery Showplace is worth the drive! With thousands and thousands of knives to choose from it is truely an knife collectors dream come true!*The entrance to the knife sales floor actually stretches from one wall to the next and is supposed to mimic the looks of an old knife factory setting a great back ground to our little town!
The Old Log Cabin The Cabin that now houses our Display Cases was our very first knife showroom that once sat in the front of Basham Lumber Company. It was the last peice moved to our knife showroom after its construction in 2004!
The Red Hill Bank and Trust What would an old Western styled town be without the Bank & Trust? Housed in this antique brick builing is the "Red Hill Vault". Our huge vault is the home to an extensive collection of knives that we pull out from time to time. Check the website now for some of our newest vault finds and own a piece of cutlery history today. *The bank was built to mimic an old western Bank. If you look under the checkout window you'll see a old sharpening stone that Lonnie took out of his wife's flower garden.
The Mattingly Barn *The old Barn is actually the front of an old barn that sat right around the corner from Red Hill Cutlery. The old Barn belonged to the Mattingly Family and Lonnie's Best Friend Johnnie Mattingly. Also if you peek through the door you'll catch a glimpse of the old Mule Hide Roof Sign. This sign once hung on the front of the original Basham Lumber Company on Hill Street, before we moved to our current location.
Got any old knife boxes? Lonnie has one of the largest collections of vintage knife boxes around. Some over a hundred years old! Take a stop a look in the hallway entrance to the store and maybe you'll think twice about throwing those knife boxes away!
Look who stopped in... Famous Bluegrass musician J.D. Crowe (center) stopped by Red Hill Cutlery and picked a little with his band The New South, during our 2006 Harvest in the Bluegrass Festival held the end of every September. Here he is pictured with both Lonnie Basham and his father Louis "Junior" Basham.
