Shop our (extremely limited number) of Grade A workshop seconds - knives which are perfect, save for minor cosmetic flaws. 

WHAT IS A FACTORY SECOND?

It's a sad fact of handmaking knives that from time-to-time we get to the end of the process to discover that the knife isn't quite right. Perhaps there's a scratch on the blade, or a slight misalignment of the tang.

The knife is still perfect to use and ultra-sharp; but perhaps the blade is slightly misaligned, or it's picked-up some scratches - that sort of thing. 

Until now, these nearly perfect knives have gone to friends and family; but now we're giving you the opportunity to get in on the action.

WHICH KNIVE ARE AVAILABLE?

At present we have some Henry and Nala 8.5" Chefs knives available; as well as a small number of Henry 6" Utility knives. 

Our Henry collection features handles carved from black walnut; whereas Nala has beech handles.

The knives are available at ~30% less than their usual cost.
