JP Nickerson has lived in the great state of Maine his entire life. As a young boy he spent a lot of time in the Maine woods with his father, who was a registered Maine Guide. JP learned how to fly fish at the age of 5 and learned how to hunt at the age of 8. As he grew into adulthood JP began collecting knives. JP has collected, bought and sold knives from all over the world for over 25 years. His passion for the collectible knife industry was the catalyst of the Maine Knife Company being formed. JP uses his decades-long study of the industry to create a unique collection of knife designs for the Maine Knife Company. Working out of Bangor, Maine, JP puts a tremendous amount of time into the design of each Maine Knife Company knife. He insists on the finest materials and pays attention to the most minor details when designing his knives.
As the Maine Knife Company is a veteran-owned company JP also takes pride in giving back to the veteran community with many of the knifes sold. JP insists every Maine Knife Company knife comes with a transferable lifetime guarantee and purposely limits the production run of each knife made by the Maine Knife Company to a small quantity. Each knife is individually numbered and comes with a certificate of authenticity and a hand sign design print of the knife autographed by JP Nickerson himself.
