The Story

From the Neitherlands and currently working in Ireland, Jelle hand forges custom chef knives that are made to be used daily, and they do it in style. The countless hours spent processing large amounts of vegetables in commercial kitchens led him to pursue knifemaking, striving to improve on the tools available to him currently. Focusing on Japanese powder steels and using san mai construction for flexible, comfortable cuts with a hard edge that stays sharp.
