Brewster Farmers Market gave us a write up! We also got shared to a face book page for left handed people after our last offer to make left handed Japanese knives. There are 65,000 subscribers. It had me a bit worried but apparently they refuse to acknowledge Japanese chef knives as a thing. Not one inquiry. Well I guess turn about is fair play. Good going Japan!
We here at Cape Cod Cutlery recognize your existence. We also realize that the Japanese do not. Therefore we are more than happy to make you a Japanese style knife with a left handed single bevel edge. Kitchens can be dangerous places especially for left handed people. We want to make you cooking experience safe and delightful. Let us know if we can make you a custom knife.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Falmouth Police Department their officers and families. Two officers were shot in the line of duty. It is another blow to the local community. These sort of things just are not supposed to happen on Cape Cod. Best wishes two both of them a speedy recovery.
“You guys certainly create aesthetic and functional works of knife making art! It wants to be used as soon as it is in my hand. Your work carries it’s own energy!!” From a letter sent to me by a customer who bought a couple of drop tip skinning knives.
We are so busy I have had hardly anytime to blog. We are still here. Check out our crazy farmers market schedule! We look forward to seeing you soon. Check out our new bush craft all star knife the Badger. Here it is in one of it;s two handle options of Green canvas micarta or walnut.
We will be sharpening Tuesday Mornings from 9-1 in Sandwich, MA at the Sandwich Farmers Market. We are now officially a permanent fixture for the rest of the season at the P-town Farmers Market as well now. That makes six farmers markets a week you can get your knives sharpened or purchase a new custom made knife made here on Cape Cod. For a full list of all of our farmers markets, as well as our craft shows, see our Full Schedule.

We did not think we would be at Ptown farmers market this weekend but apparently we will be!! I will be trying my wireless sharpening rig mach two after blowing up last week with a pop and smoke. I will have my new scissor rig with me to try out as well. Love my early mornings on the beach in Ptown!! As usual we will be at Cape Cod Beer on Friday night after last weeks rain out we hope people will be out in force. Sunday we will be in our usual spot under the wind mill at the Brewster Historical farmers Market selling and sharpening knives.
Well we are crazy, there was never any question of that! We love being out and meeting all the interesting folks on the Cape. We barely have any time to make knives! We will be at the Eastham Windmill all Saturday and Sunday with a Castleberry craft fair. We will also be at the Providencetown Farmers Market. We have new deep cycle battery sharpening set up I am not sure how long I can sharpen with it but first come first serve I will be sharpening there!! Last week lots of people wanted knives sharpened and I have no power there so I bit the bullet and invested in a battery and inverter. Sunday as usual we will be at the other Windmill in Brewster at Drummer Boy Park’s Historical Society Farmers Market sharpening as well.
We are going to be at the Ptown Farmers Market for the next two Saturdays which is super exciting!! We have some stunning knives to sell at the moment. We are also going to be in Chatham and Eastham the next two weekends at Castleberry craft shows and the normally scheduled farmers markets as well.
We got a hold of several pieces of wood taken off the USS Constitution during the 1974 overhaul and asked if people would like knives made with it and the response was overwhelming. Way more responded then we have wood for. So we will see what we can do to get some more to fill the orders. We will let those interested know when knives are available as we progress with it.
We have also taken out first fledgling steps into AEB-L Stainless. It has beat 52100 high carbon steel in cut tests and edge retention which has long been the “Cadillac of knife steels” according to kitchen knife guru Bob Kramer. We are looking at making our filet knife, riggers knife, oyster knife and maybe a clam knife out of AEB-L. We figure these will be exposed to salt water and the damp more then any other knife we make. The plan is to get prototypes of the rigging knife in the hands of Master Knot Worker Mathew Bedouin at Mystic Knot Works in CT to put it through the paces to see how it compares to his old tried and true carbon steel workhorse. The filet knife prototypes will head to Chatham Skate and Dog Fish fishermen to test the edges on the sand paper like skin of their fish of choice. Tom will suffer through oyster tests with the oyster knife prototype. We will look for a hard core clam person for testing of that prototype. If you know anyone let us know.
