People always ask us about doing a Japanese style chef knife so here we go!
It is 52100 steel with a handle of Malachite stone and olivewood with brass. It looks pretty cool. The blade is approx 6 inches long.
One of our Chefs made a comment on their Instagram account I thought was nice. If you are in Hyannis check out Spoon and Seed. You will not be disappointed. Chef Tropeano is a world class chef and his restaurant is really great and his wife is fantastic too. Good food and good people, who could ask for more!
So many big things happening this month at Cape Cod Cutlery!
The holiday season is almost upon us! Contact us now for orders before the seasonal rush to ensure we have time to create your custom knife.
We are very excited to be featured in the upcoming mid-winter edition of Edible Cape Cod. Look for it in early December!
Cape Cod Cutlery will be appearing at the 3rd Annual Love Local Fest in Dennis Port on Sunday, December 4th from 12pm to 5pm.
In other big news, the chef knives we have been designing and working on have been delivered to three of the chefs we are working with. Chef Lowell at the Naked Oyster, Chef Crowell at the Portside Tavern and Chef Tropeano at Spoon and Seed have the knives in hand. We await their report at the end of the month.
Come see us at Live Love Local!!!!
This is the Fighter. It is a really nice all around general purpose knife. It has a sleek design and neat balance with just a bit of pommel weight. By far my favorite of our outdoor knives. Made from 1095 steel with your choice of handle material.
This is the Norseman it has a thick hidden tang running through the handle and is made of 1095 steel. The tang comes out the end of the handle and has a hole for a lanyard. The scandie grind makes it a great bush craft knife.
This is the Skinner. A small Every Day Carry (EDC) knife with the traditional “Skinner ” blade. A fun useful outdoor knife.
This is the Pruner. A small full tang gardening knife and multipurpose EDC made of 1095 steel.
The Boatman is a sheep hoof blade design that hearkens back to the 18th cent sailors knives with blunted tip and a sure grip on the top and bottom for the thumb and forefinger. Made of 1095 steel.
The Executive is a bird and trout and paring blade. 1095 full tang construction with a long handle and short blade make it good for small food prep and outdoor use.
The Bird and Trout. Small game dressing knife 1095 steel full tang construction.
Amazon has a new program for small handmade businesses. They have a fairly detailed application process and approve you if you meet all their criteria. We only have the one knife up now but more will follow. Stay tuned.
Good news we have our kitchen knives ready to go out to the chefs. Pictures will be taken on Sunday they will be going out to chefs on Monday. Even better news we were interviewed for an article in the upcoming Edible Cape Cod Mid Winter Edition!! Keep an eye out for that! Bad news , the Orleans Winter Farmers Market said that knives violated the Nauset Schools weapons policy. So we are not able to go to the Orleans Market as we had hoped. I understand why the school has such a policy. Not sure why it applies to a farmers market of adults held on a Saturday when school is not in session. I guess there are no exceptions. A lot has changed since my father was a boy when every kid carried a pocket knife and they brought their shotguns to school with them so they could go hunting after school.
Today we added a new member to our team, Rachel Powell Bayer photographer and web business developer. We had a small photo shoot today and this is the result. Each week she will be photographing our new product and helping us with Instagram and Etsy and other ways of communicating online. She will help us take it up a notch and bring our online presence to the next level!
