"History's All Time World Champions for the Cutting Edge!"
Razor Edge Systems, Inc. is a family owned and operated business located in Minnesota, in the land of 10,000 lakes, near the Canadian border. Our business has been in Ely since 1976. Prior to this, Razor Edge Systems was run out of our family basement in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where all 5 children would help with assembly work and manning booths at the sport shows where we sold our products in the early 1970's. John and Rose Juranitch, the founder's of Razor Edge Systems, decided to get out of the rat race and raise their 5 children where there was minimal crime, lots of elbow room, clean air, and plenty of lakes for fishing, so they sold their house, loaded the U-Haul trailer and headed north with $500 in their pocket, the trailer behind their van and the U-Haul Truck.
Working together as a family has not been easy and has certainly had its trying times, but we have learned and continue to re-learn the value of family, the importance of family members and the importance of the business family which includes our employees. At times separating business and family has been a difficult challenge, and one we would venture to say has been an adventure to say the least. We operate our business on the principal of treating others as we would want to be treated. We conduct our business with honesty, integrity, and a high standard of moral business ethics.
We have worked hard at developing and patenting sharpening tools that provide the absolute best edges possible so that even the novice can obtain shaving edges. We are committed to not only meeting but exceeding customer expectations through outstanding customer service and the highest standard in sharpening tools available.
We believe in supporting programs of excellence like Young Life and Teen Challenge for those who have lost hope due to entanglement with drugs, alcohol or other destructive habits that steal and destroy life. We support local organizations that promote conserving and maintaining our natural resources by supporting CWCS (Conservationists with Common Sense). We support our local Ducks Unlimited, our community college (Vermilion Community College) and our high school and elementary school. We are very proud to be a part of our community and have the privilege to operate our business in God's Country - Ely, Minnesota.
