How the Mighty Carver Began
The story of how the Mighty Carver was created starts at our family gathering for the holidays.
Our family owns a small cabin on top of a mountain near Missoula, Montana. We don’t get out there much, but when we do, there is generally a list of things to be done around the property. One of these includes “Limbing Up” the trees.
To avoid the chance of wildfires burning down our property, we trim the small branches and bushes around the trunks of the trees. We do this when there is still moisture in and around the acreage and the leaves are still green.
The men in our family love to use the chainsaw and cut away all the unwanted brush. Of course, their faces are all smiles as they cut away with the power tool.
If I were to ask my husband or son, “Hey could you go out and cut down that tree for me?” they wouldn’t hesitate for a moment. They would jump up and head out to the shed for the chainsaw.
Bringing Power to the Dinner Table
Thanksgiving is a time of togetherness and gratitude.
— Nigel Hamilton
At Thanksgiving dinner as far back as I can remember, I would get out the electric carving knife for Grandpa. He would carefully carve the turkey to serve the family.
This is a wonderful tradition shared by most Americans. But Grandpa’s been gone for a year now and at the last Thanksgiving dinner I asked, “Hey, who wants to carve the turkey this year?”
No one looked up, no one said a word. I thought to myself, come on you guys, you all love power tools, what is the problem?
Then it hit me. “If this were a chainsaw, you boys would be fighting over who gets to carve the turkey.”
Mighty Carver Story: Creating a new Kitchen Tool
Ultimately, the Mighty Carver was created to make carving the Thanksgiving turkey — and other foods — an experience your family will remember. The Mighty Carver has done that for our family, helping us pass on Grandpa’s tradition of carving the turkey.
The Mighty Carver doesn’t just look like a chainsaw. It packs the power of one too. We spent months and rounds of models to find one that works better than any carving knife on the market.
Our electric carving knife is light, so anyone can use it. The Mighty Carver has two ergonomic handles and it’s fitted with two stainless steel blades, so you’re in control. Lastly, it’s easy to take apart to wash and stow away. Now, you can carve your turkey like a pro, and make it look easy.
