Frederick Faces: Sean Norris

Owning Edgeworks Knife & Supply Co. was not always Sean Norris’s ambition. “This was nowhere in my dreams growing up or even in school,” Norris said, who began working at Edgeworks in 2001 following his high school graduation. After graduating from Frederick Community College with an associate’s degree in computer science, Norris explored a variety of career paths. He dabbled in everything from electrical work, a janitorial position, and information technology. 

When Edgeworks, which opened in 1993, was for sale Norris re-evaluated his career calling. “I wasn’t sure if I wanted to [computer] program for a living because I didn’t see myself liking it.” But he was sure that he liked working at the knife shop, so Norris purchased the place in 2008 and left the rest behind.

The Ijamsville native wouldn’t want his shop located anywhere else. He values the support from everyone in the Downtown Frederick community. For Norris, Downtown Frederick is a perfect location. He likes that Frederick brings a balance between city life and countryside. He continued, “It lets you just relax and enjoy things."
