Kotetsu

Thin, light and graceful with a distinctive blade shape, the Kotetsu range are an instant favourite.

Wrapped in the day's local newspaper and safely encased in a stylish black storage box with a red inlay and a small note from the blacksmiths explaining that this range is how they prize art and functionality; efficient cutting tools over ones that are simply beautiful. (These are both).

I make knives all week long.

On weekends I cook for my family

Cooking gives me new ideas for my knives: weight, blade, sheen etc.

So they're better in the kitchen.

Beauty is important to me.

But integrity and function are more so.

I aim to make the best working knives, with this principle:

"Art over beauty"
