About us

In 2007 after almost 3 decades of working in the manufacturing and aircraft engine industry and becoming increasingly disheartened that his hard work was being capitalised on by disinterested money driven companies, Tommy McKinnon decided to give up being an employee and take a step into the creative world of entrepreneurship.

Without a customer, supplier or any strategic plan he ordered an LVD Orion plus CO2 Hybrid laser (first of its kind in the UK) and set about starting up his own business with the prime focus of delivering quality services offering high value and with outstanding integrity.

Establishing his business Just a stone’s throw from the world famous and iconic Titanic Belfast Tommy set about creating artisan, handcrafted pieces, and the rest as they say is history.

Using his unrivalled skills, knowledge, experience and attention to detail he soon had a book full of orders and a client list spanning over many industries. After a huge financial investment and property expansion in 2019 Cutting Edge are broadening our horizons to take on bespoke and artisan pieces and open up new markets.

We are being approached more frequently to commission one off and very bespoke pieces. We invested in our business to be able to deliver on our promise to the more obscure and personal requests.
The most powerful nation in the world is the imagination and if you can think it, we can make it.
