JP Nickerson, Maine Knife Company knife designer

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.

Mossy Creek

To Benefit Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing

The Mossy Creek is a special limited edition knife made to benefit Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing. Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing is a registered 501 (3) C non-profit organization. Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF) began in 2005 serving wounded military service members at Walter Reed Army Medical Center returning from combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. Project Healing Waters brings a high-quality, full-spectrum fly fishing program to an ever-expanding number of disabled active military service personnel across the Veterans Affairs Healthcare System, in Military Hospitals and the Warrior Transition Command. We focus our resources wherever the need is greatest and expand our partner base in the process. PHWFF has become recognized as an innovative leader and model in the field of therapeutic outdoor recreation for the disabled, through its successful application of the sport of fly fishing as a rehabilitation tool.

The Mossy Creek knife was designed in close collaboration with Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing staff and JP Nickerson, our knife designer. The Mossy Creek is an exquisitely designed trout and bird knife limited to 100 individually numbered pieces.  Each Mossy Creek comes with the Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing logo laser etched into the blade along with their motto "Healing Those Who Serve". To reserve a Mossy Creek knife visit the Mossy Creek link on the drop down menu above on the right side of the webpage navigation bar, or click on this Mossy Creek reservation link.  A donation of $80.00 for every Mossy Creek knife sold will be made to Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing from the Maine Knife Company.
