Located in a small metalworking cottage industry located in the middle of Mendocino's renowned woodworking enclave. For seventeen years all the tools had been handcrafted to satisfy the demands of the most discriminating professional. Shaping, beveling, and slotting was done by hand-grinding and precision machining on pre-digital machinery. But we grew so much in the late nineties that we started "outsourcing" some of the blades to a high-precision factory in France. Our knife blades are being cut out with a laser and ground flat after hardening.
We still focus on the intended use of the item and work to facilitate that end.
