The Gigand Co. has been one of Taiwan's leading producers
of knives and knife parts for over twenty years. The company
has produced private brand knives and knife parts for companies
all over the world. The Gigand Co. produces over one million
private brand knives per year along with component parts for
knives coming from Europe and Asia.
In 1995 Gigand took the bold step to enter the worldwide knife
market using it's own brand name. This was a significant step
for the company as no other producer of private brand knives
in Taiwan had taken such a step.
From the outset the goal of Gigand and it's designer, Dr.
Fred Carter, was to produce the highest possible quality and
design at a reasonable price. The designer of the Gigand line,
Dr. Fred Carter, has been a custom knifemaker for over twenty-five
years. Dr. Carter has held many offices in the Knifemakers
Guild including two terms as President. Over the years he
as won many significant awards for his work, including twice
winning the W.W. Cronk award for best knife of the Knifemakers
Gigand and Dr. Carter are dedicated to the continued production
of the highest quality knives possible. The materials and
construction are state of the art. Computer controlled machining,
space age materials and the finest steels are used in Gigand
knives. Indeed, the latest knives from Gigand are on a quality
level that not only matches but also often surpasses many
hand made knives.
Feel confident that the ownership of a Gigand made knife gives
you the best knife available, we invite comparison with the
major brands on the market today as we feel confident that
our quality will stand the test.
Look to Gigand to lead the way in development and production
of the highest quality knives.
