About Heavy Metal Knives
Thank you for visiting my website www.heavymetalknives.com.
My name is Elianna and I am the owner. I have previous experience in the knife industry. I am all about superior customer service and will go to great lengths to make my customers happy. I first started this business having worked with one of the largest knife distributors in the world and now I own my own business. Quite a change from employee to employer.
How this started was when I had been furloughed from my last job so I had to make a career move and do it quickly. I was making a decent salary but because of COVID-19, I lost my job and said what am I going to do now? So that's when a situation with my daughter had occurred at around the same time and voila, my career move began. Please read the following...
My daughter, age 12, was on her way to school with her brother, age 11 to play at the local park. On the way there she encountered 5 fellow classmates and right away sensed trouble. As they approached her, she instinctively started running home, which luckily was only a couple blocks away but unfortunately one of them caught up to her and was swung onto the ground by her hair and then was repeatedly punched over and over again. The other 4 were recording the entire event and when the girl finally stopped, my daughter picked herself off the ground and called her father who was home at the time. He went to pick up my daughter and oddly enough all 5 of her classmates were going on about their business as if nothing happened and my children's father told them that they could go to jail for this and they laughed at him in a mocking way. I called the police as soon as she notified me of what happened and believe it or not, after repeated calls to the police station, they finally showed up 2 hours later. They took a police report and that was that. We were hoping that they would release the video on social media so that we had proof of what happened. I spoke to the prosecutor and he told me that there was nothing they could really do in a situation like this because it was her word against ours and not to mention that she's a juvenile. She would get a slap on the hand at best. Well it turns out that they couldn't resist, because the video was posted on social media . I couldn't believe what I was seeing and to be quite honest, I had to stop the recording because I wasn't able to watch the entire video, it was that bad. Since then, I felt guilty and told myself why not allow my daughter to be equipped with all the essential tools needed to protect herself and so that's when the aha, light bulb moment, came to me to officially start my own business. I am a parent of three beautiful children. I have since put her in self defense courses. The moral of this story is that #1 everything happens for a reason. True true believer in that and #2 it led me to the path that I am on today!
I love what I do and the types of products I sell because they are excellent quality products but more importantly, every single item I carry, serves a purpose. I wish that day she had something to protect herself or had some martial arts training but she didn't and maybe if she had a can of pepper spray for example, this maybe wouldn't have happened.
I first started selling on Ebay. At first it was very small and to be honest, I made a few sales here and there with about 20-30 SKU's. Nothing big at all. Slowly slowly I started noticing business pick up and I started ordering more and more products which now it has turned and grown into something I never imagined could have ever happen. I have well over 1,000 SKU's and the business is growing day by day. It's at times hard to keep up with but it's nothing I can't handle! :) My motivation to open up this website and some day become one of the top knife distributors in the world, is my day to day motivation and I see really big things to come in the near future!!
I am very excited about this new business venture and have every intention of providing excellent & superior customer service to all that view my website. All products that I carry are brand new in their original packaging. I personally respond to all questions & inquiries and will give my absolute price on every and each item that is on my website. I intend on expanding my product line in order to provide a variation of options for my customers at great prices! Please feel free to contact me for any reason. Please follow me on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram in order to help me expand and grow my business so that it can thrive during these unexpected times in our economy. I hope to learn about each and every customer and will go to great lengths to make my customers happy. We need to help small business owners out there in order to make this world a better, more productive place and I could use your support in my journey.
