This knife is a tribute to the old classic butcher knife that settled the American frontier. It is a 1095 steel blade with a brass ebony and cocobolo handle. Notice the hamon line we achieved through differential quenching.
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!
As many of you may know we are working on developing our kitchen knife line. We have five super talented chefs from some of the best restaurants on the Cape who have agreed to run our knives through serious work and give us feedback to help us make the best knife we can make. The 52100 high carbon steel is in and we have started the process today. We are looking to have these in the hands of Chefs by November!! Stay tuned for more updates as we have them!

For three years Tom has tried to make a knife that he could call his own. Every time he tries to claim a knife, we end up selling it. This is his current choice. (For now. Offer him enough money….)
It is made of 1095 high carbon steel, nickel silver, African blackwood and desert ironwood. He is so thrilled with its sharpness he may not have any hair left on his arms.
This is the last Cape Cod Beer Farmers Market on Friday 3:00-6:00. Come on down and see us and bring your knives to be sharpened. Have a beer listen to some live music. Some of these knives may be there as well. These are our production knives first run after heat treating and tempering. They are black coated from the Canola oil they are quenched in. On the far left is a Tanto we are making for a friend. Then the production knives start. The Boatman, The Hunter, The Fighter, The Bird and Trout, The Skinner, the Executive Paring Blade and another Fighter.
