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.
— Louis Nizer

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.

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
