Why our knives are unique

  • We use only the highest quality premium stainless and carbon steels. Most other knives on the market use low to medium grade steels for ease of manufacturing and low cost. Collaborating with Niagara Specialty Metals we have discovered the best combinations of steels for edge retention, toughness, flexibility and stain resistance. While these metals are often labour intensive to work with and more expensive, our research suggests they produce a far superior product.
  • We are one of only a handful of makers around the world that produce High Chromium,Carbon Martensite pattern welded steels (Damascus)
  • Our stainless Damascus offers a low maintenance alternative to carbon steel Damascus.
  • Each knife steel is tested for edge retention, toughness and hardness (Rockwell hardness tester) and overall quality in workmanship.
  • Our knives are not mass produced but hand-crafted from the raw steel up.
  • Each knife is uniquely serial numbered and recorded in our database for identification and security.
  • Our knives are perfectly balanced for ultimate performance whether in the home, commercial kitchen or the outdoors.
  • The finish of our knives is second to none. We take extreme pride in the seamlessness of the handle, bolster and blade.   Our leatherwork and knife packaging further reflects our skill and pride in our craft.
  • We use only ecologically sustainable products in our designs.
  • We are constantly researching and developing new steels and designs, and collaborate with our global family and world leading industrial product designer, Matter.
  • In our island family we are fortunate to have much talent with a foundry, waterjet and cnc capability at our doorstep.
