Tools by Jacob Saphier - Michigan

Based in Detroit, Michigan Jacob Saphier of Saphier Blades designs and crafts handmade chef knives that make home cooking a more memorable and enjoyable experience. Sharing studio space in downtown Detroit with other artisans where inspiration abounds, Jacob's focus is on minimalist, highly functional designs using partial-tang construction and hand-sanded blades ground from high carbon tool steels such as 1084. Creating functional objects that also play the role of artistic works allows Jacob to employ his engineering background in a creative and fulfilling way, and as chef's, we reap the benefits of his vision and aesthetic.
