A knife for Mom.

So my Mother has about a dozen small paring knives that she uses for all her cooking. They are all cheap and dull almost on first use after sharping and she hates them. She has been hounding me for a good paring knife that will stay sharp. Well mom it is your lucky day! Knowing that my mom was born into the age of stainless knives that no one ever cared for or sharpened or god forbid hand washed after use , dried and put away. I knew if I made a knife for my mother it would have to be tough and rugged and able to withstand all the abuse and neglect it would receive in her hands. The blade is made of Nitro V. A steel that is supposed to be rust and stain proof. The handle made from Acrylic resin . It should be able to handle all the things we tell people to never do to a knife. Plus it has fancy file work down the spine for beauty and class just like mom. 🙂

Summer season winding down winter gearing up.

September is the month to catch our breath and start gearing up for the big holiday season. We are almost caught up on special orders as well and working hard to take advantage of this slow month to get on top of them. This month we say good bye to our Cape Cod Beer Farmers Market this Friday. We said good bye to our Brewster Historical Society Farmers Market last week. We will still be at Sandwich and Chatham on Tuesdays through middle of October and Even though Ptown goes till November after September we will be there sporadically due to massive Christmas shows That demand all our presence.

This month we will be at Live Local Fest in Hyannis at the end of the month and at the brand new Bow To Stern Williams Street Festival In New Bedford.

Hump Backs are back in stock!!1

This quirky little chef knife was designed by us to fulfill several roles of different Asian styles knives we liked. The result is a unique small knife with some rock and chop a tiny bit Chinese cleaver meets rocking veggie knife. IT is thick and tough enough to make a good meat processing knife or good for crushing garlic and mincing herbs. It proved to be a big hit and is now back in stock we will have limited quantities this weekend at Ptown and Brewster Farmers Market and Hyannis Craft festival on the Green.

No more special orders for now. :(

We are overwhelmed with special custom orders at the moment. We want to get them done in a timely fashion and we do not want to lose any in the shuffle. Right now we need to be working on knives to fill the tables for the big holiday show we have booked. We hope this does not inconvenience anyone. We will probably be taking commission work again starting end of December. Thank you for your patience and continued support.

It’s American but is it Art?

So Cotuit Center for the Arts is having a Proud to be an American themed art show and it is bringing two art curators for off Cape to jury it. Now we know we are craftsmen but now that we have entered these into an Art Show we will get to find out if art professionals deem our work to be art. We will let you know if we make the cut.
