Garden & Gun magazine has named Taylors-based Stono Knife Works as its Outdoor Category winner in its 10th annual Made in the South Awards.
“Our 10th annual Made in the South Awards drew hundreds of entries from potters, bakers, distillers, woodworkers, milliners, jewelers, glassblowers and more, proving once again that Southern craftsmanship and ingenuity is alive and well,” said Garden & Gun editor Elizabeth Hutchinson Hicklin.
Stono Knife Works, which is owned by Alec Meier, joins the ranks of highly distinguished Southern makers highlighted by the magazine. Stono Knife Works has been a tenant of the Taylors Mill since early 2019.
“We are proud to have Stono Knife Works as part of our community,” said Caleb Lewis, owner of Taylors Mill Development. “Alec is a great craftsman, and we are better for having him with us here in the heart of Taylors.”
