Green Man Knives

Fine, hand-crafted cutting tools for field and forest, kitchen and workshop.

 
 
A man who works with his hands is a labourer; a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman; but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist.

Style & Quality

'Form follows function' is the perfect phrase for knife design to my mind. I work closely with the professional users of my knives to ensure they are perfect for their intended purpose with no pointless design frills added to make them look more.

My apprenticeship and career as a master silversmith instilled in me a meticulous eye for detail and if it doesn't look as good on the back as the front it's not for sale.

100% Handmade

Apart from a few simple machine tools everything that I make is hand made by me in my workshop.

Many of my blades are hand forged and handle materials are carefully chosen, milled and stabilized by me.

I make my unique mosaic pins which adorn all my knife handles myself and also all the leather items using traditional techniques
