I make handmade kitchen knives in my workshop in Sheffield, England. All the knives are individual pieces and are the first and last of a kind. I never make two pieces the same and each knife is individually date stamped and numbered. I use a wide range of materials in my knife handles, all ethically sourced and often composites made of many different pieces.
I use some of the last pieces of razor blade steel made in Sheffield. The steel is called Silver Fox 100 and is named after one of the famous Sheffield Knife Industrialists Samuel Fox who had a silver streak in his hair. It's a high carbon stainless steel which will keep a super sharp edge.
My knives are hardened in a state of the art cryogenic hardening machine, the only one in the UK, and then they are double tempered to ensure a razor sharp edge.
I individually grind my knives with a convex grind which gives a smooth cutting performance.
I currently offer four different kitchen knife sizes: 8" Handmade Chef's Knife 7" Santoku Ferraby5" 4" Petty
