Our specialty: Personalize your knife (first name, initials, date...) with a beautiful engraving of the spring produced by a professional engraver. The engraving is performed before the file work (guillochage) and the heat treatment.
Hand chiseled and forged spring
The bee is solid and forged into the spring. The spring and bee are then hand-chased with a file : This denotes artisan quality, unlike inexpensive mass market products that have welded springs and are machine decorated.
Stainless steel damascus blade
The Damascus steel we’re using is from Damasteel® and the patterns will last the life of the knife.
