The following press release was issued by Three Rivers Mfg.

Halpern Titanium, Inc, a leader in the knife industry for nearly two decades, has decided to join forces with a newly formed entity, Three Rivers Mfg., to produce artisan knives using the latest manufacturing technology and methods without losing the old-world pride and attention to detail.

Three Rivers Mfg.’s products are 100% made in the USA, utilizing high quality materials and precision machining techniques developed at Halpern.

Our goal is to offer small production runs (100-300 knives) using designs from our in-house engineering/design team as well a world-respected custom knifemakers. We are going to refer to our new concept as micro-manufacturing.

First out of TRM’s Pro Shop was the TR-BT1000, a collaboration with the master custom knifemaker Bob Terzuola. This finely crafted titanium framelock folder was introduced at Blade Show 2014 in Atlanta. True North Knives is our exclusive dealer.
