Lamson & Goodnow, maker of LamsonSharp™ cutlery, is the oldest cutlery manufacturer in the
United States. Lamson & Goodnow was established in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts in 1837, and
rapidly became the premier cutler in the United States. We manufacture both stamped and forged
cutlery. As the American passion for home and hearth grew, so did Lamson & Goodnow.
In 1999, Lamson & Goodnow purchased TreeSpirit™, a company that handcrafts professional-
quality hardwood cutting boards, bowls, kitchen utensils, and kitchen care products. HotSpot™
silicone for the home was added to the Lamson & Goodnow family of brands in 2002. Unusual at the time, silicone is now regarded as a staple of the modern kitchen for its high heat resistance,superior flexibility, and nonstick properties.
