A photo journal
This is Steve. A more pleasant man you shall not meet. He was so good at explaining each stage of the process to me. Steve made his first knife when he was 9 years old. His dad was a furniture maker, but dabbled with knife making too (like you do) and showed him the basics. This lit a spark in Steve which never went out. Steve has now been making beautiful pocket knives for over 30 years.
It’s not very often one get’s the privilege of witnessing a master craftsman taking a block of wood and a raw stainless steel blade, and working them into a beautiful pocket knife.
Our hometown is Sheffield, UK and for those of you who don’t know; Sheffield is famous for it’s knife making heritage which dates back over 300 years. It only seemed fitting to collaborate with a local artisan to create a beautiful outdoor pocket knife.
It was such an interesting day, and so inspiring to see the full creative process so I thought I’d share some shots from the workshop.
