Creating The Perfect Chef Knife

Dave Olkovetsky, CEO and Founder of Artisan Revere, a company that crafts expertly-designed, super steel kitchen knives that stay sharper, longer joins Enterprise Radio.

Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Dave Olkovetsky discuss the following:

  1. Explain a little bit about your product and its significance for the culinary community.
  2. Your company name is pretty unique, what made you choose it? Are you channeling Paul Revere? 
  3. Why did you decide to make knives, specifically chef knives, instead of another product?
  4. Talk to us about your plans for distribution: DTC? Digitally Native? Brick and Mortar?
  5. You have a background as an investor and researcher. How are you transitioning to being the owner of a consumer company? 
  6. You give your knives a lifetime warranty. Many businesses today decide to provide a quick fix instead of a long-term solution. Tell us why you’re going against the grain.
  7. How do you balance your time between developing an extraordinary product and growing your company’s presence in the market?
  8. Does the quality of your product influence the way you run your company?
  9. Quality is important to you, both in business and in life. What inspires this dedication to excellence?
  10. What’s the best advice you’ve been given when it comes to founding your own company?
  11. What’s next for you and Artisan Revere? 

Dave Olkovetsky, Founder and CEO of Artisan Revere, is committed to raising the bar when it comes to kitchen knives. Artisan Revere’s knives are a product of Dave and his team’s obsession with making a remarkable product.

Before Artisan, Dave was a metals and mining investor at CQS, and before that at Jefferies. He’s also a CFA Charterholder and an angel investor. He loves solving problems and optimizing outcomes. His time as a researcher influenced his approach to making a “perfect chef knife”, as determined by the Gadgeteer.

When it comes to his motivation, Dave wants to make products that delight his customers.
