Knife making may seem like a lost art, with manufacturers churning out knives in huge masses, but look hard enough and you’ll find that artisan knife making is still alive and well. One example is Blok Knives, a British creator of gorgeous chef’s knives and pairing knives. Blok knives feature either hand ground stainless or carbon steel blades (58/60 HRC depending on the steel), stunning wood handles and mosaic decor pins. There’s not a standard Blok Knife – each is hand made, materials vary based on a case by case basis, and blades can be customized with unique etchings, all of which can be discussed with Benjamin before placing your order (Ben is the gentleman that makes your knife). The icing on the cake is a lifetime warranty covering standard kitchen use, ensuring your Blok Knife will last as long as you do.
