I went into the Visitors Center just to look. Two ladies were in attendance and showed me what knifes I was interested in. Came away with two and at very reasonable price. Would highly recommend it for anyone interested in quality knifes,

We stopped as a rainy day entertainment. The visitor center had the history of Cutco and displays of the history of their Ka-Bar knives as well as some of their other products. You can also purchase their products there.
