In the shadows of the Sangre de Cristo mountains sits a century-old adobe ranch house where artisans handcraft knives of rare beauty. From one-of-a-kind custom designs to popular, affordable, collections of pocket knives, table and kitchen cutlery, men's gifts and accessories. Each of Santa Fe Stoneworks collectibles is a unique example of the cutlers art the quintessential marriage of fine steels with gemstone, shell, or intricate wood marquetry. Co-founded in 1978, by Bill Wirtel and John Iverson, Santa Fe Stoneworks has been a proud family operated business run locally in Santa Fe, New Mexico. John Iverson retired from the business at the end of 1998. Bill is shown in front of a display case in the gallery that contains award-winning designs and rare custom knives. Recognized as a leader in the field, Santa Fe Stoneworks has consistently produced a range of knives from collector-grade, handmade one-of-a-kinds; to popular, affordably-priced gifts that comfortably fit most any budget or holiday list. As Bill says about his continuing involvement, My grandfather was a stone cutter from Upper Bohemia, where the logo for the Stonecutters Guild was called a wirtel. I proudly carry on that tradition.
