Helvie Knives


A fundraiser for our local Alternatives is a “ONE OF A KIND” woodcarving knife collection!  This collection of knives will be at the Eastern Woodland Carvers July Show in Converse, IN on July19-20, 2014. The set will be raffled off on Sunday, July 20th at 3:30pm.  (If you are not attending the show but would like to participate, please contact us at 765-675-8811 or zen@tiptontel.com).  You do not need to be present to winRaffle tickets are $1/each or 7 tickets for $5.  The collection will consist of 12 total knives from our Signature Series collections as well as a blade cover that was made by each carver.  All knives have been personally autographed by these renowned and respected carvers featuring their respective blades and designed handles just for this event.

We could not be more pleased that the fine carvers that have endorsed our knives are helping to raise funds for such a worthy cause that helps and educates the public on domestic and sexual violence right here in Central Indiana.  Their names deserve recognition; Gerald Sears, Chris Hammack, Floyd Rhadigan, Don Mertz, Tom Brown (his son Scott Brown finished his blade guard after his passing last year), Rich Wetherbee, Bruce Henn, Mark Akers, Randy True, Steve Brown, Wayne Shinlever, and Gary Falin.  Other recognition needs to go to Tom Kallner, of Indiana, for making and donating the display box the knives and blade guards will come in and Don Stephenson, of Ohio, for designing the artwork on the display box.  All wood burning on the display box was done by Rich Smithson of Helvie Knives.

If you are interested in making a donation straight to Alternatives of Central Indiana they are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and your donation is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.  They can be reached at their website http://www.alternativesdv.org/  They have many up and coming events to help benefit Alternatives located on their website.

Thank you to everyone for your kind generosity!

Sincerely, Rich & Holli Smithson/Helvie Knives
