Chef Knives

I do both custom builds and post finished knives for sale directly on the site.  

If you are interested in purchasing a knife, you can watch the site or join the mailing list, where I will notify you of available knives before they hit the website.

If you want to commission a custom build please see below.

 

Custom Builds

If you are looking for a fully custom blade, please reach out using the form at the bottom of the page.  

Slots are limited as these builds take significantly more time than my own builds, but will allow you to extensively influence the design of your knife.

These builds are more costly than purchasing a finished knife, but you will be picking your own blade shape, size, design and handle material.

I'm currently booking custom builds for JUNE 2020.

Made in the Maritimes

All of the work from design and conception, to forging and finishing, happens in Prospect Village.  Materials are sourced as locally as possible.  Steel from Canadian suppliers and handle woods from both local suppliers and local shorelines.

 

By Hand

Using a handmade blade is a special experience.  Knowing that there is no other knife exactly like yours and that it was made with you in mind, during every step of the process.  Each one of our knives is completely unique.

 

Carbon Steel

All of my blades are shaped or forged from high carbon steels.  Up until the advent of stainless, all chef knives were carbon.  In fact, if you dig through your grandparent's heirlooms, that old carving knife with the darkened blade and bone handle, is most certainly carbon.

Carbon steel is generally regarded as easier to sharpen, and better at holding its edge longer.  The trade-off for this performance, is it MUST be cared for properly. 


A carbon steel blade will react to the foods it cuts, and over time, your culinary adventures will paint its surface with hues of grey, blue and black.

Please click below and read up on how to care for these knives before committing to a purchase.

 
 

A Bit About Me

My name is Jeremy, and I'm an independent knifemaker based in Prospect Village, Nova Scotia.  After spending the last 20 years working in tech, I caught the bug of making things with my hands.  Making knives is a labor of love, and hammering out new ideas or designs and trying them out in the kitchen has been a fulfilling experience that I continue to enjoy.  

Everything in our world is so fast, convenient, and commoditized.  Sometimes it's nice to take a step back and do things slowly, and with care.  These knives are crafted for people who take the same approach to their cooking.
