In 1978, he founded Tennessee Knife Works Inc. in Columbia after which Colonel Coon Knives came into the picture.


It was in 1980 when he devised his own chemical milling process for custom etching on the blades. Harris also ventured into developing a packaging process that included a hinged paper box which is used till.

The more recent Colonel Coon Knives are factory manufactured models that come out of the Queen factory under licensed by SMKW.
